Game notes: With spearhead Tom Hawkins struggling, Cats coach Chris Scott faces a conundrum against Carlton on Saturday night – where to play veteran Harry Taylor. Taylor started the season in attack before being moved back to defence, but the forward line functioned much better with him there against the Crows last week as he booted five goals in the second half. Carlton was disappointing against the Brisbane Lions last Sunday and is missing the midfield drive generated by injured duo Patrick Cripps and Ed Curnow. While the Cats will miss the injured Mark Blicavs, the Blues lack class and depth in this area. Carlton’s leaders need to respond after an ordinary performance and will take some confidence from their previous encounter with Geelong at this venue last season, when Bryce Gibbs and Matthew Kreuzer starred.
