Geelong Cats v Melbourne Demons 2022 AFL Round 17 Match Preview & Team Lists
Ben Jensen GEELONG and Melbourne
each reunites with their skippers for tonight’s retro round clash at the GMHBA Stadium, with Joel Selwood and Max Gawn returning from rest and injury respectively. The Demons currently lead the AFL ladder with a win ahead of the second-placed Cats and a 4% buffer; if the Cats lose, they can drop all the way to fourth place depending on how the Lions and Dockers play out that round.

Also recalled was Sam De Koning, who retired late last week, while the Cats lost Jake Kolodjashnij to injury and omitted Quinton Narkle. The Demons dropped Sam Weideman and Mitch Brown and recalled who is probably the best “number two” ruckman in the Luke Jackson competition. The Cats and Demons VFL teams also play this round, Friday night at GMHBA Stadium.

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 web-based operations manuals for water installations, the Chartered Engineer quickly decided it was time he combined his love of Cats with his skills and that he “tries” 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.
