Collingwood Magpies v Geelong Cats; 2022 AFL Round 3 Match Preview and Team Lists – The Cattery – Geelong Cats Unofficial Website

Collingwood Magpies v Geelong Cats, AFL 2022 round 3 match preview and squad lists
Ben Jensen SAM DE KONING and serially managed Shaun Higgins return to the Cats side to face the Magpies in an away game at the MCG tonight, where Geelong skipper Joel Selwood will become the record holder for the most AFL games as captain. Selwood played his first game in 2007 and took over as skipper in 2012 after the Cats’ third premiership at that time. Selwood’s 227th game as captain will take him past Carlton legend Stephen ‘Sticks’ Kernahan who finished his career two more than AFL Hall of Fame ‘legend’ Dick Reynolds (224).

The place for De Koning and Higgins is omitted from the duo Luke Dahlhaus and Zac Guthrie. Last week’s replacement Quinton Narkle was also ruled out and not named on the emergency list. Interestingly, Mark O’Connor is an emergency appointee, who has yet to play a game this season due to a knee injury. Among the ERs, O’Connor and Guthrie are both playing against Collingwood in the VFL as we go to press, with Mitch Knevitt and Dahlhaus out, presumably kept in reserve for tonight. For the Magpies, former Cat Nathan Kreuger will be missing through injury.

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 soccer field 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.
