After a exciting first week of finals, we now move onto week 2 of the finals series. This weekend we will have 2 semi finals, one on Friday night and the other on Saturday. This preview will look at the first semi final between the Cats and Eagles. Cats were disappointing early last week while the Eagles got the job done easily at home. This should be a good matchup to start our weekend from the beautiful MCG.

Defenders

Tom Stewart @ 8,500 – Was solid enough for us last weekend scoring 97 against the Pies in the first final, plays the Eagles tonight where he had 124 last time against them. If that repeats again tonight , Stewart needs to be considered

Brad Sheppard @ 7,200 – Bit of a cheaper but not bad option to pick tonight had 88 last week, if he can score around that if not break 100, should be considered for this matchup.

Midfielders

Luke Shuey @ 9,500 – Certainly does love a final Shuey, his numbers during finals are insane in this and previous years, so he should be considered in any finals matchup. Coming off a massive 120 last week repeats them type of numbers should be considered.

Tim Kelly @ 8,400 – Is Kelly playing against the team he will play for next season ? Could he been doing a mini interview ? If that’s the case, should be considered as an option in this matchup. He scored 107 against the pies last week, I can easily see him going over 110 again tonight.

Joel Selwood @ 6,900 – Just throwing this as a smokey out there tonight, hasn’t been in the greatest of form but he is the captain of the Cats so should always be considered in a big game and this is a massive game.

Ruckman

Nic Naitanui @ 7,000 – Well we don’t know what Geelong are going to do with there ruck situation so Nic Nat is the safer pick and option, should really dominate the ruck and should score 80+

Forwards

Luke Dahihaus @ 6,800 – Should be considered today as an option, can score well on his day and for me, ill be considering him this matchup. The Cats will be wanting forward pressure hopefully Dahihaus can get us a few tackles and score well.

Jamie Cripps @ 5,900 – Was great last week with a nice 114, against the bombers. If he scores something around them type of numbers he is a bargain in this matchup and should be considered for this matchup.
