THE TEAM NEWS

MELBOURNE

  • Melbourne were denied the chance to build on their win over Carlton as their game with Essendon was postponed last week and they will hope the week off is not to their detriment.
  • The one-point success against the Blues was the Demons’ first win of the season but despite that, they will make big changes to their side with Alex Neal-Bullen, Harley Bennell, Luke Jackson, Nathan Jones and Neville Jetta all omitted.
  • Coming in to the line-up are Aaron vandenBerg, Jay Lockhart, Kysaiah Pickett, Michael Hibberd and Mitch Hannan who will all be eager to impress and help the Demons to their second win of the campaign.

GEELONG CATS

  • Geelong Cats suffered a shock home defeat against Carlton last week as the Blues were able to hang on to a narrow victory despite a late comeback attempt by the Cats.
  • Trailing by 35 points at the end of the third quarter, the Cats won the fourth quarter 34-1 but that ensured they fell just short and they will be eager to put that disappointment behind them as quickly as possible.
  • There are three changes to the side that featured last week with Harry Taylor managed, Rhys Stanley injured and Quinton Narkle dropped with Brandan Parfitt, Darcy Fort and Jake Kolodjashnij coming into the line-up.

THE PREDICTION

Geelong Cats suffered a shock loss last week as they were made to pay for some sloppy mistakes but they will be happy with their efforts in the fourth quarter despite their comeback falling narrowly short. They now head to Melbourne in a bid to get back to winning ways against a Demons side that did not play last week. Their postponement against Essendon has given them plenty of time to prepare for this fixture and they have made plenty of changes despite winning their last game against Carlton but the Cats should prove to be too good for them.
