Game Chat – Geelong v North

Written by Motts on August 5 2020

Where and when: Gabba, 5:40pm (AEST)

Last time they met: Round 21, 2019. Geelong 9.15 (69) ABSOLUTELY FLOGGED North 1.8 (14)

What it means for The Cats: Sitting 6th on 5 and 4 and coming off a loss out West, Geelong need to make a statement against a lower placed team.

What it means for The Roos: North did what they needed to against The Crows last week. Knocking off The Cats would send a message that they’re not going to be the comp’s whipping boys any longer.

Motts Watch: Jy Simpkin. I’ve been filthy on him for 3 weeks. If he had the bye this round he’d be walking around with the imprint of my boot on his backside. Lift, son!

Mottsy’s Tip: Cats by 30

  1. Taylor Rankine hill out
    in Stewart & Duncan
    & skinner unfortunately .
    Backline finished
    400k in the war chest
    Rookie to Simpkin next week
    What to do with smith & smith ?


    1. Jo , Just checking you have Lloyd, Sicily, Ridley and at least any of Maynard/Haynes/Williams/, a POD and now Stewart? that would be the template in my opinion.


      1. Ha ha
        Not even close
        Ryan Ridley docharty Stewart Doedee Hurn
        Starcevich Zac-thatcher
        I said finished not perfect


  2. question for tech team – if you can trade out Simpkin for Stewart via duals, should you??

    Trades running low, and will leave no cash … but is it a sign?

    Edit – not Stewart, Doedee!! Back to accounting school for me!!

    T/U – yes do it
    T/D – hold Simpkin


    1. i’ll show myself the door on that one folks – lack of sleep and not leaving much time tonight – gee, work has a lot of explaining to do for itself!!
      But thanks for the responses regardless!!


  3. Whos the best rookie for to trade in before this game?
    Don’t mind if they have played one game or debuting this week and can be any line


      1. Whoops sorry brain fade as I should have clarified that. I’ll rephrase. Getting Draper already need another rookie to afford Duncan. Whos next best?


      2. I’ve already spent 2 trades this round, and I’ve spent max trades this season. Is it worth using another to bring in Draper? Or is he not that important?
        T/U: You gotta get him in
        T/D: Save the trade, you’ll need it later


  4. Need a captain since Macrae as VC didn’t work out and don’t have Neale

    TU : Gawn – under injury cloud but playing bottom side
    TD : Grundy – not looking 100% either as with D Cameron in, may be rested a bit


    1. Those two first quarter goals and injuries to Taylor and now Ben Brown make his JS solid. Comes in next week for many, including myself.


    1. they said at the start he’ll be rested a fair bit forward … concerns over the back to back to back games…


  5. Mr Stewart…I didn’t recruit you to serve up this garbage. Maybe with Brown out there is no matchup ?


  6. If you haven’t checked the other threads yet, legend Chaos has posted the teams for tomorrow – those banking on D Cameron – bad news … again, omitted

    Buckley = new FURL!!!

  8. Message to my 3 Cats players, Danger, Duncan and Stewart, so you think you could actually outscore Simpson who I traded out this week please….??

    If you 3 could get together and sort that out this last quarter it would be much appreciated.



    1. Danger is a big game player
      Duncan probably still gaining fitness &
      Stewart is trying to stay awake with not much to do back there


  9. Full Time – Cats win by 33 points and coaches who brought in Stewart will be disappointed with his score, especially if they traded out Simpkin.

    Geelong Cats: 13.12.90
    Mark Blicavs 127

  10. Fml was supposed to bring in both Duncan and Stewart but missed the start of game! Thought it was a 7.10pm start like the other games earlier in the week! 2020 sucks. Oh well, my bad. At least I can bring in Cripps, Simpkin next week. And I guess Stewart/Duncan are still cheap enough if I still want them….
