Geelong Cats odds

Geelong FC AFL

The Geelong Football Club’s journey began way back in 1859. It is the second-oldest footy team in Australia, behind the Melbourne Demons, and also the world’s second-oldest professional football club of any description.

Despite their longevity and a who’s who of Australian Football Hall of Fame inductees, it is only since the turn of the millennium that the Cats have converted their powerhouse status into tangible success. They have missed the finals only once since 2007, winning three AFL Premiership titles in the process.

Geelong dominated the second half of the 2022 season and rattled off 16 wins in a row on their way to winning their 10th AFL premiership, smashing Sydney by 81 points in the decider.

However, 2023 was a lot different for the Cats. Chris Scott didn’t get to field his best 22 for most of the year, due to injuries to most of his top players. Unlike 2022, Geelong struggled in the back half of the year and couldn’t maintain their spot in the top eight.

With superstars on every line and plenty of young talent coming through the ranks, Geelong look poised for another strong campaign. Let’s see how the bookies rate their chances this year.

Geelong players to watch in 2024

Cameron Guthrie

Cameron Guthrie

Born: 19/08/1992
Games: 236
Goals: 75
Position: Midfielder

Cameron Guthrie only played six games last season, due to a toe injury that kept him out of the AFL team for the rest of the season. Outside of two games for Geelong’s VFL team, Guthrie hasn’t played since April. The 31-year-old was coming off one of his better years at the club in 2022, where he shared the Cats’ Best & Fairest award with Jeremy Cameron post their premiership year. Guthrie will be looking for a big year in 2024, and if he can stay injury free throughout, Geelong will improve significantly in 2024.

Tom Hawkins

Tom Hawkins

Born: 21/07/1988
Games: 347
Goals: 781
Position: Forward

Tom Hawkins has been one of the best key forwards that the game has seen over the last decade, with 781 goals and 347 games to his name going into the 2024 season. There is no doubt that Hawkins is in the twilight of his career but he continues to kick bags of goals and perform at a high level. A nagging foot injury kept him out of a few games at the back of 2023, but with a full pre-season behind him, Hawkins can help propel the Cats back up the ladder in 2024.

Sam De Koning

Sam De Koning

Born: 26/01/2001
Games: 43
Goals: 1
Position: Defender

Sam De Koning started of 2023 similarly to 2022; however, he spent some time on the side lines due to a knee injury that kept him off the field for a month. When the 23-year-old key defender returned he took over as Geelong number one defender and took the best forward in each game. 2024 will be De Koning’s third full year in the AFL and he is already on his way to becoming a top defender in the competition.
