Game Chat – Geel v Freo

Written by MJ on April 12 2015

This is going to be a tough one for the Cats. No Jimmy Bartel and Jared Rivers is a late withdrawal. Although Kardinia Park has been a sanctuary for Geelong over the past 10 years, it’s hard to see them getting this one. Nat Fyfe should run rampant in this game, as the Cats midfield lacks a true stopper.

Fyfe would be a good choice for captain and Matthew Pavlich should have a field day as the Dockers should dominate the stoppages. Fremantle has had the wood over Geelong since Ross Lyon joined the club in 2012. If Geelong fails to show any resistance to a fearsome Dockers outfit, the Cats top four hopes are well and truly dashed.

Justin’s tip: Fremantle by 45 points.

  1. A brutal assessment of your own side there, Justin!

    I agree with you though. I fear for the Cats going into this one. Jimmy Bartel is a massive loss and Fremantle’s midfield should dominate.

    I’ll be cheering Nat Fyfe’s every disposal as they earn double points for my side today.

  10. So glad I stuck with Pendles *forehead slap*

    Can’t believe I can trade Johnson for Bontempelli and get 46K change. Funny old game.
