Bitter Desire by Kids In The Kitchen
Rickman on the Footscray half forward line looks dangerous, a long kick over the head of Beasley that's great play by Rickman and a tremendous goal for the bulldogs.

Peter Foster as we said a greatly improved player up to Edmond, Edmond taking a strong mark and the bulldogs look terrific, there's the handpass too coming out to Royal for umpteenth kick looking for Beasley, he's got him!
