Game notes: Two undefeated teams going head to head; one with almost a full list to choose from and the other without two key players thanks to fresh suspensions. The Cats are fairly healthy going into this clash, with just Cam Guthrie and Scott Selwood from their regular team unlikely to play, but the Demons have suffered a hit with Jordan Lewis and Jesse Hogan to sit out after accepting three- and two-week sanctions respectively. It’s a significant blow for the Demons, who have won their first two games for the first time since 2005, especially when coming up against the damaging midfield brigade of Patrick Dangerfield, Joel Selwood and Daniel Menzel, and in-form half-back pair Zach Tuohy and Andrew Mackie.
Thommo’s Tip: Geelong by 12 points.
