Western Bulldogs v Geelong Cats; 2022 AFL Round 12 Match Preview and Team Lists – The Cattery – Geelong Cats Unofficial Website

Western Bulldogs v Geelong Cats, AFL 2022 Matchday 12 match preview and squad lists
Ben Jensen GARY ROHAN has been named to play only his second game of the season against the Bulldogs tonight,
while ruckman Rhys Stanley is also an inclusion after missing the past few weeks. With apparently no other AFL-level ruckman standing, it was left to Mark Blicavs and others to pinch the ruck in Stanley’s absence. Omitted are Shannon Neale and Frank Evans, while Quinton Narkle’s replacement last week has also been ruled out.

The Bulldogs made just one change, recalling popular forward/midfielder Bailey Smith. The round game has bettors fairly evenly divided with betting odds bouncing around all week, with the eighth-placed Bulldogs being deemed slight favorites ahead of the sixth-placed Cats.

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.
