Game Chat – North Melbourne v Geelong

Written by Thommo on July 11 2015

After the insipid loss to the Suns, the Kangaroos have finally decided to axe a named player in Lindsay Thomas. Obviously Brad Scott is as frustrated with the team’s inconsistent form as the tipsters are. Will the looming axe shock the players from the lethargy that has plagued the club this year or will they continue with their stop-start season?

Geelong finally take to the field again after their much publicized 20 day break. They have to win to stay in contention with the top 8 and the return of quality Cats, Jimmy Bartel and James Kelly, will help the cause. How will they respond to the long lay-off?

Thommo’s tip: North Melbourne by 12 points (I  know I’ll regret this one!)

  2. Nahas is a late out with Turner coming in. For some unknown reason Boomer’s the sub. Yet, Waite still gets a game.

    Not confident tonight!!!!

    Boomer and Kelly is surely the greatest pair of subs we’ve seen!
