Greater Western Sydney Giants v Geelong Cats; 2022 AFL Round 8 Match Preview and Team Lists – The Cattery – Geelong Cats Unofficial Website

GWS Giants v Geelong Cats, AFL 2022 match 8 preview and squad lists
Ben Jensen Geelong ditched one young blonde bombshell for another, omitting two Ollie Dempsey players but appointing Cooper Stephens for his AFL debut. Stephens has found himself in the VFL for the past two seasons but the 21-year-old’s VFL form with a few small goal sacks is timed perfectly. The Cats have made five changes in total with skipper Joel Selwood and Max Holmes injured while Luke Dahlhaus returns to the emergency roster last week. Shaun Higgins is listed as injured although it boggles the mind. Patrick Dangerfield, Frank Evans and Quinton Narkle are back. The Giants made no changes. The game kicks off at the Manuka Oval in Canberra at 4.35pm on Saturday.

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 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.
