No doubt the retirement of Gary Ablett jr. leaves a huge hole in Geelong's midfield but there are enough signs to suggest they will be strong or indeed stronger this year.
The Cats have picked up 2019 Coleman Medallist Jeremy Cameron from GWS to stand alongside star forward Tom Hawkins, while veterans Isaac Smith and Shaun Higgins add a touch of class.
Patrick Dangerfield is primed to go after an interrupted pre-season and Joel Selwood has shown in the lead up to the new campaign that he's as strong as ever.

Geelong Cats history
The Geelong Cats were founded in 1859, making them the second oldest club in the AFL after the Demons. Geelong were a foundation club of both the Victorian Football Association (VFA) in 1877 and the Victorian Football League (VFL) in 1897.
The squad's latest premiership win was in 2011, when they defeated Collingwood in the grand final. The Cats play most of their home games at Kardinia Park, while a few take place at the MCG. Last year they led the grand final at half-time at the Gabba but were overwhelmed in the second half by Richmond.
