CATS LOSE TO
ST KILDA; FACE FREMANTLE OR HAWTHORN IN ELIMINATION FINAL
By Ben Jensen (Dubai, UAE) GEELONG CATS V ST KILDA SAINTS ST KILDA upstaged Geelong at the MCG tonight, hanging on despite a surge from the Cats late in the game, winning by four points. Cats fans though and indeed the players were furious after a Cameron Ling goal that would have given them the lead was disallowed after a 50/50 free kick was paid. In Cameron Mooney's words 'you've just cost us the game'; we watched the game from our hotel in Dubai, and now face the prospect of attending next week's Elimination Final so long as it doesn't clash with the old man's 65th on the Saturday night..
