THE TEAM NEWS

GEELONG CATS

  • Geelong Cats produced a brilliant display on Monday as they posted at least 90 points for the second game in succession which saw them overcome in-form St. Kilda to move to 7-4 for the season.
  • Making it back-to-back wins, the Cats were relentless as they started strongly and did not take their foot off the gas as they won 34-93, allowing just four points in the second half of the contest.
  • The Cats have opted to make just two changes for their second game of the week as they manage Brad Close and Jack Steven’s workloads and their absence hands an opportunity to Lachie Fogarty and Sam Simpson.

PORT ADELAIDE

  • Port Adelaide remain at the top of the AFL ladder after they earned a superb victory over reigning premiers Richmond to really demonstrate their Premiership credentials in this campaign.
  • The Power made it three successive victories with the 93-72 success against the Tigers with Port Adelaide fighting back from a one-point deficit at the end of the third quarter as they produced a brilliant final quarter to keep their opponents scoreless.
  • There are two changes to the side that beat the Tigers with Cam Sutcliffe and Jarrod Lienert dropping out in place of Sam Mayes and Steven Motlop as the Power look to fend off one of the sides in the chasing pack.

THE PREDICTION

Geelong Cats face Port Adelaide in a mouth-watering clash between two of the top three in the AFL. The Cats sit in third spot, eight points behind the leaders who they come up against in this contest. Power have won three in a row whilst it is two straight wins for the Cats so both bring some form into this. There is little to split the two teams but the Power have performed more consistently so far this season and with that in mind, they can create further daylight at the top of the ladder between themselves and the Cats.
