INs/OUTs:

Geelong

Sydney

Game notes: Game of the round. Geelong has had the week off following its shock loss to St Kilda and faces the Swans, who were left licking their wounds after JJ’s game-winning goal in the dying seconds at the SCG last Saturday. The Swans would’ve held top spot on the ladder with a win over the Dogs and can’t afford to let too many more slip if they’re to keep their top-four hopes alive. The Cats, meanwhile, have performed admirably against top-eight sides this season, winning six of their seven matches, and will be hoping that trend continues in this finals-shaping clash. It will be worth noting whether the Cats start the game a little rusty after their mid-season bye, or if the Swans are still feeling the effects of their last-second defeat to the Bulldogs. How will Kieran Jack respond after the spotlight centred on his private life all week?

The 6 Points

1. Lance Franklin kicked four goals in the first match between the sides last year. He didn’t play in the return clash and the Swans had just one multiple goalkicker.

2. This game could be won or lost in the middle. The Cats are ranked No.1 for centre clearances with 14.4 per game, while the Swans are ranked equal-14th.

3. The sides meet for the 218th time, with 120 wins to 97 in Geelong’s favour. The Cats have dominated the past decade against the Swans, winning 13 of the last 18 contests.

4. Both teams have been strong for taking the ball inside 50. The Swans are ranked No.1 with 57.9 per match, just ahead of Geelong in second with 57.4.

5. The Cats are ranked No.1 for marks inside 50 with 15.6 per game courtesy of Tom Hawkins, who is ranked equal-second with 48. The Swans are 12th in this area.

6. Luke Parker climbed eight places, from No.26 to No.18 overall, in the AFL Player Ratings after his 34-disposal, three-goal game against the Bulldogs. He’s now the third-highest Swan.

Mottsy’s tip: Geelong by 10

  2. Motlop in for Petracca for me. If I am any chance from 218th, then it probably lays in the hands of a risky POD. You are that man Steven

        1. I gave you a TU 🙂 it’s the one weakness to his game, he’s a great player but he could improve his kicking, especially set shots.

    1. Certainly Sydneys best at present. Aliir Aliir looking very good too, and McVeigh is playing that mid/def general he does so well.

      Hanners wayward and Parker quiet. A lot of quiet midfielders on both sides, cancelling each other out. Not much sign of Kennedy or Selwood.

  3. Definitely finals footy in July. Watching this game you really wouldn’t want to play either of these teams in September.

    As much as Danger was hot in 1st qtr, 3 possessions in the 2nd. There might be some unhappy captains if the swans can keep the pressure on.

    1. Why is everyone having orgasms about Geelong, they solely rely on danger… and duckwood, No possies first 10 mins 3 goals againts, come back we he gets 18 in the next 20 mins. Goes away in q2 and the swans outscore them…

      1. Because virtually no teams stop Danger. He’s scored under 110 3 times this year.

        If he’s injured, like Fyfe for freo, season over for the cats. Neale can’t do it alone and neither can Selwood.

        But if he doesn’t, they’re a serious top 4 competitor.

        They’ve got a lot of young talent too, so they’re doing well while rejuvinating their list.

        Both Sydney and Geelong look like finals threats right through the decade.

        Hawthorn are still scraping through but you think that their time in the sun is starting to wane.

        The top 4 until 2020 look like Geelong, Sydney, GWS and the Dogs.

        I would have tipped Sydney to slide out too but they’ve got a lot of young talent in Rose, Aliir, Towers, Rampe, Rohan, Mills and Heeney.

    1. Should still go 100+ pretty easily you’d think.

      But on current results won’t be a huge score.

  8. Coach Shaggi can fix Geelong’s forward woes.
    Dangerfield gets the clearance and handballs to Dangerfield who then bullets a pass to Dangerfield in the forward 50. Dangerfield kicks the goal.
    Easy Peasy. Problem fixed

    1. I’m sure we could just clone him and Goldstein and maybe Gibson and let every team have the same lineup.

      I chose Gibbo because you need a defender who can play both tall and small, which heater can’t.

Game Chat – Geelong v Sydney

Written by Thommo on August 8 2015

After a few poor weeks, Sydney look to have recaptured some good form in defeating Adelaide last week. However the Swans will not look forward to travelling to Geelong to meet the improved Cats without the services of Lance Franklin. Geelong are clinging to a final 8 spot and will not go down without a fight. Considering the strength of Geelong back-line, Sydney will need to find new avenues to goal if they are to have any chance.

Congratulation to Joel Selwood on his 200th and Luke Parker on his 100th game.

Thommo’s tip: Geelong by 12 points.

  1. Losing McGlynn also doesn’t help, given he’s a noted goalscorer.

    To be honest this one is more Geelong’s to win. If Tomahawk has a day out Sydney don’t have a way to control him.

    However, if Parker and Hanners fire there’s no way Geelong can keep up with Sydney’s midfield.

  3. Who to trade for Buddy?

    T/U Boomer
    T/D Titch

    Or hold and take Lambert’s 72 (with 5 trades left after NicNat to Blicavs)

    Cheers coaches!
