Cats v Kangaroos preview
Geelong’s Patrick Dangerfield has been named to make a long-awaited return from a troublesome calf – after a false start last week – but a remorseful Tom Stewart will miss the next four games for his hit on Dion Prestia.
Former Swan Gary Rohan will come in for Stewart as the Cats look to keep rolling in pursuit of six straight wins on Saturday. Their last loss came against St Kilda in mid-May.
Dangerfield has not played since Geelong’s win over Port Adelaide in round 10.
Stuck on the bottom of the ladder, North Melbourne has begun a review into their football department with coach David Noble’s future increasingly clouded.
The Kangaroos have not won since round two against West Coast.
