Geelong Cats

2020 PREVIEW

Stuck with the wrong end of the stick when it came to the first year of conferences in AFLW, the Cats won their way through to the finals despite winning just three games last season. The lopsidedness in conferences meant that the Cats were exposed immediately in finals but, nonetheless, it was an accomplished season for Paul Hood’s team in the debut season.

They desperately missed new signing and club captain Mel Hickey to begin with, but when she returned she was spectacular to watch and appreciate given her extreme fitness to get around the ground and play all positions equally well.

The Cats didn’t quite have the firepower up forward to polish off any work the midfield was able to create and questions were asked when they were quashed by 11 goals against the Crows. As quick as Nina Morrison blew us away on her debut, her season struck a sour note at the end and she was out for the remainder of her rookie year.

Unfortunately for the Cats, their gun defender Meg McDonald will miss the opening month of football due to injury, but the bright side is that Renee Garing is fully fit to resume and should help the Cats put a more positive spin on 2020.
