Geelong deserve nothing....stuff  'em... :thumbsdown

Spot on. They are whingers that had everything they wanted handed to them by Shocking for the last 3 years. They were on the way out before he rewrote the rules to suit them.

Quote from: Chinacats
Cats scores at MCG this year.
69, 60, 126, 61, 70.
No Jez in 3 of the 4 low scoring games.
Yes the tigers game is the outlier but if we don’t score more than 80 this week it’s a tad worrying I would’ve thought.

Ross Lyon & Matthew Lloyd looked at our game last night on Footy Classified.

The two areas they said we can exploit against Geelong are:

1. Ruck:

Nankervis vs Stanley head-to-head

                              Nankervis       Stanley
Contested possies:    11.1 (elite)      7.0
Hitout win %            43.1              32.7 (below avg)
Tackles                      3.3                1.5 (below avg)

2. Our forwards match up well on Geelong's defenders:

Match-ups

Lynch              Henderson
Riewoldt          Henry

Stewart might go to Jack given we don't have Dusty. Blicavs possibly to Lynch. Frees up Henderson to towel up Chol, or possibly Henry on Jack with Stewart roaming around spare.

Won't be easy.

Geelong coach Chris Scott said the Cats couldn't fall into the trap of underestimating the Tigers missing the three-time Norm Smith medallist.

"Our suspicion is, given they've been so successful with a really structured plan and operation over the last few years, even though he's the best player in the comp, there will be another really good player who comes in and plays a similar role to him," Scott said.

"Or we could take a different view, which I think would be a mistake, and that is to assume that they're going to be less potent without him. I think they've shown over a long period of time they can replace really, really high-level players with guys who can come in and do the job."

-----

Scott said the Cats had quickly moved on after having their request to shift their home game against the reigning premiers from the MCG to GMHBA Stadium denied.

"I prefer to look at it more from the other side which is, when we're in an environment where the AFL are in an impossible situation trying to manage everything, if this is an issue that slips down the priority list, I think all fair-minded people should be able to live with that and that includes us," Scott said.

Scott also called on the AFL to explain their "ethical framework" when it came to venue decisions for finals as soon as this year.

----

Scott also confirmed Shaun Higgins, who will play his 250th match on Sunday, had been cleared of his staging fine stemming from the Cats' win against Fremantle last week.

Gary Rohan (corked quad) and Lachie Henderson (personal reasons) will also return after missing last week.

Got to love Geelong saying they have moved on about the game being playing at the 'G while Chris Scott is still sooking in the media :lol.

Stevic used to give us a very raw deal prior to 2017 but has been much better since.

Meredith is fine.

De Boy really is the worst. His performances against Richmond surely warrant investigation by the Ump committee.

Tigers underdogs for MCG clash with Cats

Shayne Hope

July 23, 2021


Richmond coach Damien Hardwick has been quick to claim underdog status for an MCG heavyweight clash with Geelong he concedes "probably" should be being played down the highway.

The Tigers will be without superstar Dustin Martin after a serious kidney injury sidelined the match-winner for the rest of the AFL season.

But the ninth-placed Tigers are clinging to hopes they can spread Martin's workload across the team and remain in the finals hunt as they pursue a fourth premiership in five years.

Geelong thrashed Richmond by 63 points in their most recent meeting - at the MCG in round eight - and have held opponents to just 44 points a game on a current three-match winning streak that has put them within half a win of top spot.

"They've been playing a very consistent brand of footy," Hardwick said.

"We've got a challenge, there's no doubt about it, but we've been in these situations before and we've come out on top.

"It's very much an underdog status for us but we're looking forward to an enormous challenge versus a very good Geelong."

Once a crowd was ruled out because of Victoria's latest COVID-19 lockdown, Geelong sought to have Sunday's home game moved from the MCG to their regular base at GMHBA Stadium.

But the move was rebuffed by the AFL, which cited contractual obligations at the MCG.

"We're always happy to play at the 'G; for me, that's where the big games get played," Hardwick said.

"But we can understand Geelong requesting the game (be played) down there.

"It probably made sense to us, as well, with no crowd and it is their home game."

Hardwick conceded Martin was a “hard player to replace”, but the return of veteran Shane Edwards for Sunday’s clash with Geelong could help offset that.

“We’ve got some players we think can fulfil that role in a different manner that we are excited to be given an opportunity to and see how that pans out,” he said.

“But if we’re looking for one player to replace Dustin Martin, we are going to be found short in that regard. It will certainly be a team effort. It will give us a different look.
