Match-winner George Horlin-Smith will miss this match with a broken thumb although the sum of his absence is not as great as the suspended Hogan and Lewis for Melbourne.
Geelong have the elite midfield combination of Selwood and Dangerfield, however if Max Gawn is allowed to dictate the first use of the ball in the ruck Melbourne may not win but they will be more competitive. The last time Geelong faced an elite ruckman this season (Sandilands) they lost the hit-outs 63-18, with Todd Goldstein absent from last week’s match against the Kangaroos.
The Demons will sorely miss both Hogan and Lewis and down at the Cattery their absence combined with a proven home advantage and a strong midfield will give the Cats their third win of the season.
