Geelong produced one of their worst efforts last week and it gave Essendon fans some hope they can challenge.

The Bombers certainly haven’t been winning since Anzac Day but they’re at least having a crack.

The Cats have hit the wall with successive losses (and big ones) to Collingwood and Gold Coast, which will have a few scratching their heads.

How could a team unbeaten after five weeks lose to those two in rounds 6 and 7?

This isn’t a player v player scenario, more a coach v coach.

The heat now is certainly on Chris Scott after brother Brad jumped out of the fire finally.

How does he fire up the team after the last few dismal efforts?

The Verdict 

Surely Geelong win this.

Essendon are good for 10 goals but the Cats have so much firepower, but admittedly, they’re firing blanks at the moment.

Cats by something but no confidence.
