Show Preview

The Geelong Cats are looking to make it eleven wins from their last twelve games when they travel to Hobart to take on the North Melbourne Kangaroos. Tune into events from Blundstone Arena with live scores on The Roar from 1:15pm (AEST).

The Cats are outright premiership favourites for good reason – after some near-misses in recent years, Chris Scott’s team are going full bore at a second flag in his time at the helm.

Last week’s commanding win over Richmond showed again that the Cats are the team to beat this year, even if they remain percentage behind the ladder-leading Western Bulldogs. With Jeremy Cameron set to return in coming weeks, pressure will be right on among forwards Esava Ratugolea and Gary Rohan to retain spots a spot in their best team.

The Kangaroos have improved out of sight following a dismal start to the year, with David Noble’s game plan and investment in youth already showing signs of paying off. Last week’s impressive 39-point win over Carlton might have been their best of the season, with emerging forward Nick Larkey’s seven-goal haul the highlight.

This week, though, they’ve been ravaged by injury, headlined by Ben Cunnington’s operation to remove a testicular tumour. Everyone in the footy world will be hoping the much-admired Roo will make a full recovery. In-form youngster Tarryn Thomas is also out with delayed concussion symptoms, while in a six-year first, veteran defender Shaun Atley has been dropped.
