In 2016 the Western Bulldogs stunned the AFL world by winning the premiership - the club's first in 62 years. It was an unprecedented rise to success, capped by a stunning grand final victory that left players and fans alike shedding tears of joy.
Just two years earlier the Dogs had been in chaos, without a captain or a coach. But under the leadership of Luke Beveridge, Robert Murphy and Easton Wood, and boasting a team filled with talented youngsters, the club came together in spectacular fashion, overcoming serious injuries and storming to the flag from seventh on the ladder.
