Footy Alert: WB v Geelong; Carlton v Melbourne; St Kilda v North

It's another super-hot round at Etihad Stadium this weekend, with three bumper games lined up.

Tonight the stadium will be fired up as Western Bulldogs take on Geelong at 7.40pm. Tomorrow two of our home-grown teams, Carlton and Melbourne, will battle it out at 2.10pm. And finally on Sunday, St Kilda will go head-to-head with North Melbourne at 1.10pm to secure their top spot on the ladder for another week.
