Preview

Joel Selwood will most likely return for Geelong as they make the trip up to the Gabba to play Brisbane. It’s going to be a tough game for the Lions who may be up against it in regard to the overall quality of the Cats.

Brisbane managed to come up with a terrific win against Essendon last week, however their recent record against Geelong is not pretty. They have lost 10 of their past 11 games against the Cats, with the only win coming on the back of Ash McGrath’s goal after the siren in 2013.

If we have learnt anything from this season it’s that any side can beat anybody on any given day. However, it’s almost impossible to go against Geelong in this game.

Tip: Cats by 37
