AFL 2009 ROUND 20; SYDNEY SWANS V
GEELONG; MATCH PREVIEW PLUS TV / RADIO BROADCAST DETAILS
By Ben Jensen AFL 2009 ROUND 20 SYDNEY SWANS V GEELONG CATS GEELONG, desperately want to get their season back on track after last week's loss to the Blues, have recalled Matthew Scarlett, Harry Taylor, Mark Blake and David Johnson. Sydney, who confirmed John Longmire will takeover from Paul Roos in 2011 ala Collingwood and Malthouse-Bucley Kirribilli Agreement, likewise wish to push on with their season. A win over the Cats keeps them within reach of the finals, after their thrashing of Richmond at the MCG last weekend. Making way for the Cats are the injured trio David Wojcinski, David Milburn (both ankle), Max Rooke (knee) and Kane Tenace (dropped).
Good and bad news for folk in the UK; good if you want to watch / record it on proper TV, bad if you didn't want to pay for it and would rather watch the free stream. It is as yet unclear if this arrangement will continue for another week or not. For the second week running the game's live on ESPN, now available not only via Sky but Virgin, BT and TopUpTV.
FIELD: Michael Vozzo (2) Matt Stevic (9)
Scott Jeffery (29) EM: Troy Pannell (28)
Cats by 11 points

51 POINT WIN
By Anthony Jensen AFL 2009 ROUND 7 GEELONG CATS V SYDNEY SWANS KARDINIA PARK experienced relatively tropical conditions on Saturday afternoon compared to a couple of weeks ago, the better weather drawing a healthy crowd of a touch over 22,000 to see the Ablettless Cats post a solid win over the Sydney Swans who haven't won down here this millennium, a trend that looks set to continue for another couple of years at least.

CROWD: 22,050 at Skilled Stadium, Geelong
PREMATCH ODDS: Geelong $1.05 - $1.12; Sydney $6.25 - 8.00 (Told you to back the Cats)
