On to the Grand Final vs the Swans, the Bulldog's first in 55 years The Swans had more experience, having won the 2012 decider and losing the 2014 game, as well as finishing as minor premiers. What a game it was, a see-sawing contest for the first three and a half quarters. But then, the Bulldogs pulled away to win it all for the first time in 62 years. All after finishing 7th on the ladder (out of 8 teams that can make the finals).
