Geelong Cats vs Sydney Swans – Saturday 8th August 2015

Geelong Cats vs Sydney Swans
Round 19 – Simonds Stadium – Saturday 8th August 2015

Well it was pedestrian at best at times last Saturday but we got the job done against a very poor Lions outfit and now remarkably find ourselves in the top eight! Big Josh Walker got his first bag of 5 goals which will no doubt add value to his contract while Guthrie, Motlop and Caddy again all showed promising form with Coach Chris Scott changing things up a bit since the Melbourne debacle. It was also great to see Stevie J overtake Billy Brownless on the all time Geelong goalkicking chart, but belting his ex-teammate and getting rubbed out for a week was probably not the best way to mark the occasion. Somehow I can’t see Johnson getting near Ablett’s record of 1021 goals for the Cats, even if he plays for 10 more years.  
This week it gets a lot harder with the visiting Sydney Swans on Saturday night and the media circus that goes with it.  It is also the ‘Boy Wonder’ himself – Joel Selwood’s 200th game; so hopefully we can put in a good shift and consolidate our place in the eight with a fourth consecutive win to honour our courageous captain. We’ll be back at OPs Tavern for the big clash in the Sports bar area upstairs with the Swans’ supporters downstairs. 

Remember that this game is only on Fox Footy and up against the Eagles v Hawks game, Bledisloe Cup and Cricket; so hardly any venues will be showing our game on the big screen with commentary, so join the Cats’ fans at OPs and cheers on the boys! 

We’ll also be selling tickets for our end of season raffle for a framed signed Cats jumper. The raffle will be drawn at OPs Tavern at half time in our final home and away game of the season against Adelaide on September 5, which will be starting at 11am; so not long left to buy your tickets.
