The Geelong Cats are looking to keep pace with the top four, but they’ll have to beat the resurgent North Melbourne Kangaroos at The Gabba to do so. Join The Roar for live scores from 5:40pm (AEST).
The Cats continue to yo-yo over the last month, alternating between wins and losses. They were far from disgraced in their last loss, however, falling to West Coast by nine points in an absolute classic. That said, the loss put them four points behind the top four and they’ll want to crack back in.
North Melbourne, on the other hand, managed to scrape themselves out of the bottom four with a crushing win over last-place Adelaide last week. The Kangaroos still have plenty of problems to fix, but with a six-game losing streak off their backs, could be set to go on a tear.
Geelong have a strong recent record against North, winning the last five meetings between the sides by an average of 30 points. Last year’s second meeting saw the Roos held to just one goal. Both sides lost narrowly in their last visits to The Gabba.
