GDFL ROUND 18 – THOMSON vs. NORTH GEELONG

Thomson (5th) vs. North Geelong (4th) 

Godfrey Street

Saturday, August 19, 2:10pm

IT WILL be interesting to see how Thomson and North Geelong approach Saturday’s clash with an elimination final meeting between the Tigers and Magpies the following week. Thomson looks set to go in without inspirational co-coach Reece Holwell after he suffered an ankle injury in the win over Geelong West that sealed consecutive finals berths for the Tigers. They will also be without forward duo Jared Matheson and Brendan Wall, as well as Fletcher Banfield, while Matt Egan returns from suspension. North Geelong was on the end of a hiding from Bell Post Hill that has many questioning whether the Magpies will get out of the first week of the finals. This week may give us a better indication. They will be without veteran midfielder James Chandler.

Last time they met: Round 7, 2017: North Geelong 12.9 (81) def. Thomson 10.11 (71) @ Keith Barclay Oval – Osborne Park

Prediction: Thomson by 14 points
