Canberra Cat Day – The Cattery – Unofficial Geelong Cats Website

Greater Western Sydney Giants v Geelong Cats, AFL 2022 Round 8 Ben Jensen JEREMY CAMERON kicked five goals in Geelong’s crushing win over Greater Western Sydney in Canberra on Saturday. Cooper Stevens and Mitch Knevitt made their AFL debuts for the Cats, not setting the world on fire but holding their own.

The Cats led the entire game, with the Giants never appearing there, with versatile defenseman Mark Blicavs taking on ruck duties in the absence of regular ruckman Rhys Stanley, a late out. Zach Guthrie replaced Stanley in the selected squad, while Knevitt was named as a medical substitute and replaced Jed Bews in the second quarter to make his AFL debut.

Geelong’s best was certainly Blicavs, who were given a perfect ten in the AFL Coaches Association award by both coaches. Patrick Dangerfield had fun on his return from injury, not being among the best players for the Cats, but getting votes in the media awards. Tyson Stengle kicked a three-goal sack, taking his season tally to sixteen. The fifty-three point win leaves the Cats in fifth place.

About the Author

Ben Jensen

THE CATTERY began as a labor of love, and remained, by creator and lead contributor Ben Jensen in mid-season 2002. His goal was to create the best “unofficial” Geelong Football Club site on the net. Consultant by day and webmaster by night, he created his first website in 1996 while studying engineering and science at Deakin University in Geelong. After a very brief stint (by design!) creating online operations manuals for water installations, the Chartered Engineer quickly decided it was time he combined his love of Cats with his skills and “trying” to do what he hoped for. would be one of the best unofficial sites in Geelong. Ben doesn’t remember ever supporting the mighty Cats, let alone when he started pitching for the team wearing the blue and white hoops. Virtually all of Ben’s family supports Geelong; even cousins ​​in Sydney. Sadly, he married into a mixed family of Carlton and Essendon fans, but he retains first and last rights to any offspring. One of his earliest memories is of his father explaining the rules of the game by drawing a large oval football pitch and drawing the positions in each spot, with “JACKO” in front. The rest of those early memories revolve around Gary Ablett Senior, Billy Brownless (his very first favorite official player) and Garry ‘Buddha’ Hocking. Having lived elsewhere in Victoria and overseas, Ben has remained proud of his Geelong roots and never misses an opportunity to show his allegiance, and particularly enjoys strolling from the top of Collins Street on a Monday morning after a victory wearing a tie Geelong and maybe even a jacket and scarf on special occasions. I live again in Geelong after fifteen years of absence. Ben would love to hear your comments, suggestions and hopefully contributions to The Cattery.
