The forwards for Melbourne are important but they stick to the same formula, same plan no matter who's there, Bellamy just gets them playing like he wants, tight d efence & run hard, bend the line & let the creative players do the rest
I reckon they're different to Melbourne, and place more emphasis on their ball ball movement from their forwards who give them a different dimension in attack. Definitely something to work with. The Dogs are probably the one team in the comp that would cope best if their halves went down. They dont rely heavily on them like most teams, or at least the top teams.
