Geolong says they have their own “better version” under Chris Scott’s new game plan, said Fox Footy Le Montagna, thanks to a simple change.

But according to Scott’s dangerous style of play ahead of the first round, the Cats are finding fast-paced goals.
“They are more efficient,” praised Montana.
“There has been a lot of change in writing this year.
“Last year, Jill looked sideways, looking inward. I think there is a change in ‘we have to go forward, we can’t go sideways because the best defenders in the tournament are well behind football.’
“We didn’t see this last year. Everything is now ahead, moving the ball, eyes before the ball.
“The only thing that has changed is that they are moving forward.”
Statistics show that the Cats were ranked 7th, 11th, 50th, 18th, and 921.
This year they are ranked 4th, 1st, 3rd and 5th.

“They go fast, but they are still short,” he said.
“The four are still high for unbeaten marks and short kicks – the same as last year.
“They choose their path and move forward.
“They’re going to go to Melbourne, not next to them.”
His fellow Fox Foot analyst David King’s last two games with the Cats were impressive – standing results.
In the 23rd round, the Cats scored 48 points from the standings, while in the final, they scored 101 points.
“We have never seen such a number,” he said.
