Venue: Etihad Stadium 1:10pm AEST
Last Time They Met: R12, 2016, Geelong Cats 15.15 (105) d North Melbourne 12.2 (74) at Etihad Stadium
Game Notes: These two teams are coming off vastly different round one experiences. The Cats travelled to Perth to beat Fremantle by 42 points while the Kangaroos hosted West Coast and fell 43 points short. The Cats’ backline shone against the Dockers with Andrew Mackie and Lachie Henderson impressive, while Patrick Dangerfield and Mitch Duncan were important in the middle. The Roos were led by Jack Ziebell and Andrew Swallow, but let down by inaccurate kicking for goal from Jarrad Waite (now out with a shoulder injury) and Lindsay Thomas. Both teams played on Sunday so neither team has a break advantage, but the Cats had to return home from Perth after their victory so essentially go in with one less day of preparation.
Huttabito’s Tip: Geelong by 40 (1-1)
