THE TEAM NEWS

GEELONG CATS

  • Geelong Cats responded to their disappointing loss against GWS Giants to start the campaign as they picked up their first victory of 2020 with an eye-catching success against Hawthorn.
  • The Cats took a slender lead into the break against the Hawks but ran rampant in the second half as they outscored their opponents 62-7 to run out 108-47 winners and they will be eager to build on that in this game.
  • Only one change is necessary for the Cats with Brandan Parfitt ruled out through injury and that will allow Jack Steven to finally make his debut following his move from St. Kilda.

CARLTON

  • Carlton suffered defeat by the narrowest of margins as their second half comeback against Melbourne fell short with the Blues’ first quarter effort ultimately proving to be their undoing.
  • The Demons led 0-32 at the end of that opening quarter to leave the Blues with plenty of work to do but despite leading 23-0 in the final quarter to level the scores, Melbourne stole the win just before the siren.
  • The Blues will need to quickly put that disappointment behind them ahead of a difficult trip to Geelong and they will be without the injured Nic Newman while Darcy Lang is dropped with Jack Silvagni and Tom Williamson coming into the side.

THE PREDICTION

Geelong Cats made a statement with their impressive win over Hawthorn last week and will be confident of backing that success up with another home game. They host 0-2 Carlton who will be hurting from their loss by just a single point to Melbourne last week and it will be a real test of the visitors’ character. The Cats were 9-2 on home soil during the regular season in 2019 and with last week’s big win behind them, the hosts should be able to win by at least 26 points in this one.
