Geelong Cats vs Essendon Bombers Preview
After Tuesday nights loss to the Eagles, Bomber fans have been feverishly working the ladder predictor over time to see if they can make finals but she’s looking grim.
The good news is, they are playing Geelong after a bye with the Cats holding a 1-12 record after a break.
That’s something to give the Dons hope?
Geelong should be able to shake off their strange bye hoodoo with a big win over the Bombers this Sunday at the Gabba.
Essendon was competitive against the Eagles on Tuesday night, but kicking only two goals in the second half isn’t ideal and they’ll need to be able to string four quarters of consistent footy if they are any chance of toppling the Cats.
The Cats are in good stead right now, well-rested and looking to stay in the top four.
They’ll get the job done in this one.
