Brisbane Lions vs Geelong Cats – Round 16 – The Gabba – Saturday 8 July 2017

Lions vs Cats

Hi Cats Fans,

A lot of us are not sure how to feel after last week’s draw with the Robocops of the AFL in Western Sydney. We blew a decent lead but with a team featuring 3 debutantes, no Selwood(s) and Razor Ray towing the AFL line; the draw wasn’t bad at all. Hey, it eliminates the percentage problem. We’ll no doubt be remembering the name Wylie Buzza for some time too! 

After a week up on the Gold Coast we take on the Lions at the Gabba on Saturday night. Brisbane upset the Bombers in Melbourne last weekend with a stirring final quarter, so they are not to be taken lightly; even with their injuries and ladder position. Let’s hope we’re switched on against one of the bottom sides, which has been a massive issue this season. 

There’s a couple of milestones on Saturday night too; with WA’s own Mitch Duncan celebrating his 150th while the one and only Tom Lonergan will play his 200th game. Back in 2006 after that sickening collision with Brad Miller, it looked like ‘Domsy’ would be touch and go to live a regular life; let alone become a club life member, revered full back and 2011 Premiership player. A remarkable achievement for the big #13 who has done it the hard way and quite literally has the scars to prove it. 

Perth Cats will be at The Game Sports Bar again this Saturday from 5pm – so come on down. Let’s hope the weather won’t be as biblical as last week! There will be the usual discounts for drinks and raffle tickets for the end of season draw. 

GO CATS!
