Crucial clashes for Cats Victoria

Webb-Taylor / 02 June 2017


It was the win that catapulted Geelong’s VFL September campaign last season and Cats coach Shane O’Bree is keen to repeat the performance when his side travels to Williamstown on Sunday. Mid-way through last year the Cats toppled the Seagulls – then sitting on top of the ladder – by 16 points on a wet Sunday afternoon at Point Gellibrand, a win that ultimately saw Geelong rise up the table and into the finals. This time around, the 10th-placaed Cats will be keen to build on their performance before last week’s bye when they toppled reigning premiers Footscray at the Whitten Oval. O’Bree said the Cats used last week’s bye to reflect on their opening six games. “We’ve had a reasonably tough draw and we’re three (wins) and three (losses) and I think that’s an okay result,” O’Bree said. “There’s probably two of the three games that we lost that I feel reasonably confident I’d like to play those teams again at some stage. “Willy at Willy is a tough one. But almost the same time last year we played Willy and it set our season up to make the eight. “So we’ll go in with the same mindset that it’s a very important game to get our season going the right way.” West Australian draftee Quinton Narkle is set to make his first appearance for the Cats since the pre- season practice games after overcoming a hamstring strain, but he must pass a fitness test before being cleared to play. Mark O’Connor and Jordan Cunico return after making their AFL debuts, while Rhys Stanley is on the comeback from a knee injury suffered at AFL level against Essendon on May 13. Co-captain Tom Atkins has also been named after missing the win against the Bulldogs with a hamstring strain, while the Cats are keeping their forward options open with Sam Dobson and Trent McMullan among the extended bench to replace the injured Timm House (collarbone). Esava Ratugolea, Sam Simpson and Zach Guthrie will be managed this week. The Cats had a final training session at Anthony Costa Oval last night, with Atkins also needing to pass a fitness test. Ben Moloney, Alex Hickey and Sam McLachlan are also possible inclusions. Meanwhile, Geelong’s VFL Women’s side faces an early season test of its premiership credentials when the Cats face fellow unbeaten side Diamond Creek. The Cats will unveil three new faces for the clash at Plenty War Memorial Oval in Emily Crawford, Riley Shapter and two-time Darebin Falcons premiership player Helen Florance. Shapter was part of North Geelong’s VFLW squad last year. Diamond Creek will be without key playmaker and Collinwood AFLW captain Stephanie Chiocci.

I watched the last three quarters.  Bizarre is right.  It was the bermuda triangle out there at Pt Gellibrand!

Williamstown eventually broke the game open and looked a pretty convincing finals threat in that final term.  Look out for the Seagulls, they will be right up there again in September.

They just look a well balanced even unit.


Williamstown   1.2  2.11  4.15  15.15 (105)
Geelong   2.2  2.4  3.8  7.10 (52)

Williamstown: Cavarra 3 Siposs 3 Currie 3 Cordy 2 Schultz  Gibbons  Buykx-Smith  Wheeler 
Geelong: O'Connor  Abbott  Edwards  Buzza  Atkins  Ruggles  Black 

Williamstown: Gibbons Jolley Newman Bewley Siposs Meese
Geelong: Gow Buzza Tsitas Edwards Atkins Horlin-Smith


Yep I watched the last qtr and Willy look very ominus Have to a premiership hope.

Agree Billy. The last quarter was superb by Williamstown. If they play anywhere near that sort of footy will be mighty hard to beat for this years premiership. They have struck top form in recent weeks. Earlier in the season in a televised game at Preston against Carlton seconds they were shocking. Kicking 11 goals straight in a quarter of footy and at Point Gellibrand is no easy task.. The seagulls have a very balanced team and look to be better than last season. If they can mantain an injury free run I would rate the seagulls as clearly the team to beat. Still a lot of footy between now and September but on right path to play deep in September. The 2 ex Frankston players Cavarra and Newman have breathed a bit of life and have given the seagulls a stronger look.
