After starting off the season a little scrappy, the Cats have found their mojo and have their forward line firing.

Geelong are now on a five win streak and are up to third place on ladder following a 112-91 win over Port Adelaide last week.

This is going to be their toughest test since facing Richmond five rounds ago, maybe even a little tougher. But we did see them obliterate the Tigers 126-63 in an impressive display.
