GEELONG will be hoping to avoid complacency tonight when it takes on Fremantle at Subiaco Oval in a must-win clash.The Cats surged into flag favouritism following their Round 8 win over Adelaide, but a string of defeats to bottom-10 sides (Collingwood, Carlton and St Kilda), as well as a loss to Sydney last round have severely hampered their cause and reputation.

Geelong coach Chris Scott has made some big calls on the selection as his side aims to rejoin the top four, with forward Mitch Clark axed after just one game back in the senior side, while Jimmy Bartel has been rested.


Darcy Lang was another to be omitted, with Shane Kersten, Rhys Stanley and Josh Cowan all brought back.

The Dockers have been bolstered by the return of Michael Barlow (finger), while Tendai Mzungu has been recalled for his first match since Round 8. Ed Langdon (hamstring) and Darcy Tucker (omitted) drop out.

 Fremantle’s regression to the mean from their regression to the mean has been swift; after pumping the Dons and Lions, and beating the Power at home, Fremantle have lost their next two. In doing so, they have scored 37 and 55 points, against the defensive powerhouses of Collingwood and Melbourne no less.

It has not been a good season, and in all likelihood it is not going to get much better this evening. In a weekend of short priced favourites, the Cats are second shortest, despite playing this at Subiaco, where they’ve lost five of their past six games (albeit it three of those losses were by less than two goals).

What’s going on at Geelong? It’s been the question on the AFL world’s lips this week. I said in my piece on Wednesday I see a team in a bit of a form slump, rather than any fundamental weakness in Geelong’s system or approach to the game.

The Cats are probably the most balanced side in the field this year. The elite pairing of Patrick Dangerfield and Joel Selwood is the best one-two punch in the game, and outside of that there aren’t any glaring holes in the best 22. There are doubtlessly areas to improve: their small forwards are largely raw or not outstanding, while their defensive personnel are prone to giving up scores when the ball hits the deck.

So far this season the Cats have looked the most sustainably good team when they get their system going. It’s built on dominance in the air – they’ve taken 6.3 more contested marks per game than their opponents, ranked first in the league and 2.5 times as large a differential as the second place Swans – and a forward press that would make Michael Malthouse giggle like a Pokemon Go trainer that just stumbled upon a Pikachu.

(sorry, I thought a Pokemon Go reference was mandatory this week)

The teams that have managed to break through against the Cats in recent weeks have one common thread. They played with numbers around the ball, blunting the influence of the midfield, including the pack-bursting Dangerfield and Selwood. That, combined with their own soft patch of form, have bought them back to the pack after emerging as the premiership favourite around one third of the way into the season.

That’s the path to an extremely unlikely victory for the Dockers. Use the youthful exuberance of a young group of midfielders to overwhelm Geelong at stoppages and when the ball hits the ground. Because if the ball gets down the Cats’ attacking end of the ground, then it’s highly likely Geelong will get plenty of good looks at the scoreboard.

Fremantle’s defensive abilities have been hampered by injury this season, but even still, their back six looks nothing like the bedrock created by coach Ross Lyon in his time with the Dockers. Zac Dawson could be one of the first players scrubbed from the list management team’s whiteboard come season end – and he’s supposed to be the general. Garrick Ibbotson and Lee Spurr don’t look up to playing the more accountable roles that have been foisted upon them by the absences of Michael Johnson and Alex Pearce, and retirement of Luke McPharlin.

The Dockers are allowing their opponents to score on 51 per cent of inside 50 entries, the second highest rate in the league through 15 games. A poor scoring accuracy on behalf of their opponents is keeping the Dockers above a bottom four defensive report card on my Defensive Efficiency Rating (DER). It’s a remarkable fall in less than a year for this group.
