WHERE AND WHEN: GMHBA Stadium, Saturday, July 28, 2.10PM AEST
As Brisbane makes the trip down to the Cattery, the players will be asking, ‘Why not?’ Knocking off Hawthorn in Launceston a fortnight ago and almost doing the same last week to Adelaide, the Lions will be out to cause more chaos to a club’s top-eight hopes. Geelong needs to bank the four points if it is to play in September and then worry about building percentage. Last week’s two-point win over Melbourne cost the Cats 1.3 per cent, and saw them falling out of the eight after Hawthorn belted Carlton and gained 5 per cent. When the game was on the line last week, veteran Gary Ablett exploded with 14 final term disposals, joined by Tom Hawkins celebrating his 30th birthday. The Lions will be relying on their younger talent to upset the Cats for the first time at home in 15 years. NAB AFL Rising Star candidate Alex Witherden, first-round pick Hugh McCluggage and young stopper Nick Robertson have impressed in recent weeks.
