Game notes: After a three-week hiccup, the Cats have steadied the ship over the past fortnight and have seen off the Western Bulldogs and Port Adelaide to climb back to third on the ladder after falling to fifth. Their two-point win over the Power came in thrilling circumstances with Patrick Dangerfield kicking the sealer with 90 seconds remaining after some Joel Selwood heroics. Meanwhile, the Crows have also won two on the trot after dropping games to North Melbourne and Melbourne. Since then, they’ve made a mess of the Brisbane Lions and Fremantle, with Andy Otten the hero on Saturday night with four goals against the Dockers in the wet that helped ascertain the Crows as ladder leaders by percentage from Greater Western Sydney. Both teams have player milestones to celebrate, with Tom Hawkins scheduled for his 200th game and Josh Jenkins his 100th, in what will be the Cats’ third straight game at their revamped home fortress.
Thommo’s Tip: Geelong by 18 points.
