The Cats have played finals in all but one year in the last decade and with additions to the team in Gary Ablett and Patrick Dangerfield, it doesn’t look like they are slowing down. The Cats have won two premierships, the second most in the last decade.
Geelong’s 22 is arguably the best side there is, since a lot of success has come out of them. Most of these players are two-time premiership players and half of them are hoping to make it three.
The midfield alone is terrifying; led by Gary Ablett and backed by Joel Selwood, Joel Corey, Jimmy Bartel, Patrick Dangerfield, Mitch Duncan and Cameron Ling.
This is backed by strength in both 50’s. Tom Hawkins and Steve Johnson are at one end, while Matthew Scarlett and Harry Taylor are at the other.
Geelong’s side would be tough to beat.
