GEELONG will be looking to continue its recent dominance of Werribee when it travels up the highway for Saturday’s K rock Cup clash.

The Cats are winless through the opening two rounds of the season, with losses to Richmond in Round 1 and by one point to ther Northern Blues last week.

On the other hand, the Tigers have made the perfect start under new coach Mark Williams following victories over North Melbourne and Coburg.

Geelong has named Next Generation Academy selection Blake Schlensog on an extended bench on what would be his first VFL home-and-away appearance.

The Cats look set to field up to 16 AFL-listed players, however, they are likely to hold one over for the AFL team’s Easter Monday meeting with Hawthorn.

Curtis McCarthy, brother of former Geelong forward Linc, will play as 23rd man, replacing Charlie Wilson.

Defender Campbell Floyd has also gone out of the team that was defeated by the Blues.
