JLT Game Chat – Cats v Bombers

Written by Motts on March 12 2017

Geelong regains veteran defender Andrew Mackie for Sunday’s clash with Essendon at Bendigo. Joining him for the trip to skipper Joel Selwood’s home town is defender Cam Guthrie, who has overcome a calf complaint. Lincoln McCarthy has been named for now despite a shoulder injury last weekend.

Essendon has picked its strongest squad of the pre-season, with Zach Merrett, David Zaharakis, Mark Baguley, Orazio Fantasia, Dyson Heppell, Patrick Ambrose, James Kelly and Matt Dea all back in.

Josh Green (foot) and Jordan Ridley (back) are out, while Mason Redman, Dylan Clarke, Jake Long, Heath Hocking and Conor McKenna have missed selection.

      1. Luey going down may be a blessing in disguise.

        McKernan to ruck more opening a spot up for Stewart in the forward line.

    1. Yep, pretty much had the same stats as last week when he scored 127. A few less marks and 2 less disposals.

      Just far less influential courtesy of Danger/Jelwood going bang in the 3rd.

      But that’s Supercoach for you!
