Game Chat – Geelong vs Melbourne

Written by Huttabito on July 21 2018

WHERE AND WHEN: GMHBA Stadium, Saturday, July 21, 7.25PM AEST

SUMMARY
It looms as the ultimate tug of war between attack and defence. While Melbourne’s front half is flourishing with 105 points per game, Geelong’s defence is holding up – particularly at home – where they’ve conceded just 56 points on average from five matches. If their round one encounter is anything to go by, it should prove to be a cracker under lights. This time around, there’s far more on the line with both clubs fighting for survival in the top eight. With an easier fixture ahead, the Cats can go a long way to booking September action with a win. Lose, and they could be as low as 10th come Sunday night. For the Demons, a win on the road would have them knocking on the door of the top four, while a loss will rekindle memories of last year’s fadeout. While Max Gawn’s last-minute miss was the difference 17 weeks ago, he could prove the defining factor again, with first use to the respective midfields set to go a long way to deciding this ‘eight-point’ match.

    1. I vc’d him but stuffed up majorly and have olango on the bench and no one else to loop.
      Praying for Mitchell to go large to ease the pain

  1. Best last quarter I’ve seen this year. Great game full-stop. Disappointed with the result (tipping reasons only – had to take a punt as 5 behind leader). Took Brisbane as well. Ah well, could both have easily gone the other way.

  2. Of course I benched Tuohy for Mihocek… oh well, it’s only -2. Still, knowing my luck, Keeffe will probably be a late-in and score 7!

    On a happier note, well done to Tom McDonald on a magnificent debut in Salamander colours.

    1. If you look up the word ‘prescient’ in the dictionary, it just gives you a link to this post 🙁
