Game Chat – Geelong v Richmond

Written by Father Dougal on June 17 2018

WHERE AND WHEN: MCG, Sunday, June 17, 3.20pm AEST

SUMMARY
Prepare for an arm wrestle. The competition’s two stingiest sides lock horns in a standout clash, both having plenty to prove. Geelong will be looking to make amends from the previous meeting between the sides in last year’s qualifying final, when they were suffocated by the Tigers’ pressure. The Cats have taken a leaf out of the Tigers’ book from that night when they managed just five goals, conceding an average of 66.7 points per game this season. However, the ability to do it against the Tigers and defend the MCG is another challenge in itself. In round eight, the Cats held Collingwood to five goals; six days later they were caught napping against the Bombers, who piled on 12 majors. The Tigers return from their third interstate trip this season with their third loss, and will be keen to show their midfield is deep enough to contend with the Cats. Last week, Port Adelaide’s Ollie Wines, Sam Powell-Pepper, Tom Rockliff and Chad Wingard got the better of the clearance battle, while the ruck division was stretched beyond Toby Nankervis.

      1. I’m surprised the bookies don’t have a market for ‘Which Geelong player(s) will be a late in/out?’.

    1. Doesn’t look very good early on. Not sure if its the calf or just working his way into the contest. I hope its the latter.

  2. From FanFooty: “Dangerfield – 8 disposals and 2 tackles…. Starting forward on Rance with stints in the midfield.”

    Thanks a lot, Chris. Or Brad. Or whatever your bloody name is.

    He’s still on track for 100+, but not looking like a captaincy-worthy score.

  4. I’ve asked before, any one got any inside info on the Cats?? What’s going on with Danger this year? … Seems he’s always pushed forward and giving up time on ball to Gaj and Kelly?

    In Contribs league I need Danger to outscore Nank by odd to get a win over MJ!! *sigh*, not going to happen it seems!!

    1. On Fox Footy before the game, they showed stats where he seems to spend more time forward against the teams likely to play finals. Whether it’s a ploy by Geelong to hide their midfield tactics or just to figure out the other teams defensive patterns, I’m not sure.

      All I can say is I’m glad I’ve held off on getting Danger this season, something which was unfathomable at the start of the year.

      1. If it’s a deliberate ploy designed to do either of those things, then that’s actually pretty clever on Chris Scott’s part. It sucks for us, but still.

        Perhaps for the rest of the year we should only give Dangerfield the C/VC when he’s playing weaker teams?

    1. Nor sure if Ablett was tagging Martin or Martin was tagging Ablett but either way it wasn’t helping us supercoaches.

      Disappointing game by Ablett I thought. Never seemed to get near it
