Geelong Cats Form


Top of the ladder and not looking like slowing down anytime soon, the Cats are overwhelming favourites heading into this match.

Winners of their last 12 matches, the Cats wrapped up the minor premiership last weekend.

Having won by a 10-goal margin over GWS Giants last week, they are in the box seat to repeat the dose on their home deck to end the season.

Geelong Cats Team News


The big news out of the Cattery is the hamstring injury to star forward Jeremy Cameron, who was having just about a career best season.

He misses out along with Rhys Stanley.

Isaac Smith and Esava Ratugolea come into the Cats side.

West Coast Eagles Form


It is hard to come up with positives about the season from West Coast given that they have just won two matches.

The last of those wins came in Round 15 over Essendon by just 10 points.

A win would see the Eagles avoid finishing bottom of the pile, but they could yet up with the wooden spoon if North Melbourne better West Coast's results.

Nic Naitanui, Andrew Gaff and Jake Waterman are all injured, while Brady Hough is ill and won't feature.

Tim Kelly and Jai Culley are back from suspension and Willie Rioli and Bailey Williams also come back into the Eagles side.
