CATS SLAY LIONS IN WET
By Ben Jensen AFL ROUND 12 GEELONG V BRISBANE LIONS GEELONG, after their fifty-point win over Brisbane in front of 21,212 wet but mostly happy punters, goes into the mid-season break on top of the ladder with nine wins and a massive percentage of 155%. Steve Johnson kicked three goals but it was the midfield duo of new Brownlow Medal favourite Gary Ablett and NAB Rising Star challenger Joel Selwood who were best on ground.

BENDIGO BANK CATS TURN IT ON FOR LONERGAN RETURN, SEVENTY-TWO POINT WINNERS OVER TASMANIA IN THE WET
GEELONG leads not only the AFL ladder but held onto top spot in the VFL, making ammends for last week's loss to Werribee with an absolute spanking of Tasmania. At times the conditions resembled a torrential downpour but that didn't seem to bother the Cats in the second half, outscoring the Devils by nine goals to nil. Tom Lonergan enjoyed his first game back since that terrible incident last season, and enjoyed a big cheer when he came on in the second quarter.
