    Mitch Duncan and Joel Selwood finished with a combined 73 disposals for the Cats, while Tom Hawkins and Daniel Menzel shared nine goals up forward.

  • Q4 31:11

    Essendon hang on for a four point win with a strong finish in the last quarter with the wind. The Bombers would be concerned with conceding 45 free kicks through sloppy work at the contest, and an injury to Marty Gleeson.

  • Q4 22:17

    Essendon lead the inside 50 count 112 in the final quarter, with the Cats defence under siege, but refusing to surrender the lead.

  • Q4 14:31

    Five goals to Tom Hawkins as Marty Gleeson is carried from the ground for the Bombers with a potentially serious leg injury. Gleeson had contributed a gamehigh five intercept marks, and four spoils in a valuable intercepting role for the Bombers.

  • Q4 10:02

    A clever crumb and goal from Josh Green makes it a return of 4.2.(26) from just six inside 50 entries this quarter for the Bombers.

  • Q4 07:05

    Both teams have registered 12 effective disposals in the final quarter, but these disposals have resulted in three inside 50 entries and three goals for the Bombers, while Geelong has not entered its forward 50.

  • Q4 06:57

    Essendon has already taken five marks in the forward 50 this quarter, after only taking five such marks in the first three quarters.

  • Q4 04:42

    Essendon has scored 5.2.(32) from 19 forward half intercepts and averaged 33 points (ranked sixth) from 23 such intercepts (ranked 12th) in 2017.

  • Q4 03:56

    Essendon open the final quarter with two goals from two forward 50 entries, and both goals were sourced from forward half intercepts.

    Josh Thurlow has had a gamehigh eight score involvements (including two assists and one goal) for the Cats from 15 disposals at 87 percent efficiency.

  • Q3 32:15

  • Q3 31:42

    Daniel Menzel joins Tom Hawkins with four goals for the Cats and has had a teamhigh eight disposals in the forward 50, but is yet to register a forward 50 tackle.

    Josh Green converts a centre bounce clearance into a badly needed goal for the Bombers. Geelong had won the previous seven clearances before that stoppage win for the Bombers.

  • Q3 26:54

    An excellent left foot banana goal from Cam Guthrie makes it a six goal to one quarter for the Cats and a gamehigh 27 point lead.

  • Q3 25:21

    The most free kicks any team had in a game last season was 33. Essendon has already conceded 36 free kicks to the Cats before three quarter time.

  • Q3 21:55

    Two quick goals to the Cats who are starting to gain reward for a 125 advantage in inside 50 entries, and a 12-1 advantage in free kicks this quarter, as Essendon continue to have problems with its tackling technique.

  • Q3 18:07

    Geelong leads the clearances 3530, and has done better at converting these into scoring opportunities, leading in scores from stoppages 5.5.(35) to 4.0.(24).

  • Q3 15:13

    An excellent passage of play from the Bombers ends in another classy goal from Jake Stringer who has shown glimpses of his offensive power today. Stringer has provided nine disposals, three clearances and two goals for Essendon.

  • Q3 15:33

  • Q3 11:45

    The Bombers are starting to pay for some poor defensive work. They have given away 18 free kicks for either high contact or holding the man, and trail in free kicks 06 this quarter.

  • Q3 08:58

  • Q2 33:52

    Mitch Duncan has 21 disposals for the Cats and a gamehigh 14 handball receives (no other Cat has had more than seven), in an indication of his valuable link play.

  • Q2 33:52

  • Q2 29:25

  • Q2 15:26

  • Q2 11:00

    A smart crumb and goal from Darcy Parish opens the scoring in the second quarter. Parish has attended the equal most centre bounces of any Bomber player today in an indication that he will taken more midfield responsibility this season.

  • Q1 35:10

    A somewhat scrappy first quarter ends appropriately with a free kick (the 22nd of the game) and a missed shot at goal. Both teams had kicking efficiency below the 2017 AFL average of 66 percent, with the windy conditions contributing to this.

  • Q1 35:10

JLT Highlights: Geelong v Essendon The Cats and Bombers clash in week three of the JLT community series

GEELONG has a slew of injury concerns ahead of its round one clash against Melbourne on March 25, and none bigger than superstar midfielder Patrick Dangerfield.

The Bombers were not spared either, with defender Martin Gleeson being carried from the field late in the fourth quarter with an ankle/Achilles injury and star midfielder David Zaharakis limping at the final siren after the Dons stole a four-point victory.

Full match coverage and stats

Dangerfield succumbed to a leg injury in the first quarter of the Cats' JLT Community Series clash against Essendon at Central Reserve in Colac, while Rhys Stanley (calf) also went down with injury on Sunday afternoon.

Geelong appeared to be coasting to a comfortable victory after leading by 27 points at three-quarter time, but the Bombers booted five of the last six goals to pinch a 15.11 (101) to 15.7 (97) victory.

Cats assistant coach Corey Enright said Dangerfield would be assessed over the coming days.

"We know there's tightness in his hamstring and he got pulled from the game," Enright said.

"The next couple of days are the most important days that we'll get some more information around that and we'll see how he is.

"It's obviously really early to tell how significant it is, but there's something there, so we need to get the scans and talk to the medicos and see where it lands in the next couple of days."

Dangerfield and Stanley can be added to an ever-expanding injury list down at the Cattery, with doubts already surrounding Gary Ablett (hamstring), Nakia Cockatoo (calf) and Stewart Crameri (hip), and Lachie Henderson (knee) and Scott Selwood (ankle) all but ruled out.

WATCH: Danger signs for the Cats as superstar goes down

Joel Selwood (35 disposals and 12 clearances) was superb for the Cats through the middle of the ground, while Mitch Duncan racked up a game-high 37 touches to be among the most influential players on the ground.

Geelong spearhead Tom Hawkins booted five goals, while Daniel Menzel added four for the Cats.

Zach Merrett was the Bombers' best player with 30 disposals (16 contested) and nine tackles, while recruit Devon Smith racked up 22 touches, went inside 50 on six occasions and booted two goals.

WATCH: Bomber defender injured late in the contest

Fellow recruit Jake Stringer booted two brilliant goals to go with 13 touches and displayed a number of positive signs through the forward line and in the midfield.

James Stewart added three majors and looked lively in attack, while Josh Green was another multiple goal kicker and added to the vast array of options the Bombers possess inside forward 50.

Bombers coach John Worsfold was pleased with how the forward line functioned against the Cats.

"We've got a forward line that we know is pretty dangerous with the players that go through there, but some of our midfielders are starting to get a little more dangerous as far as attacking the game goes," he said.

"Overall they shared the load really well I thought – that was one area that we were disappointed in against Richmond, but the chemistry was there today." 

WHAT WE LEARNED

Geelong: The calibre of players going into round one under injury concerns must be a worry for coach Chris Scott. Injuries to Dangerfield and Stanley were disappointing for the Cats, with Gary Ablett (hamstring), Nakia Cockatoo (calf), Stewart Crameri (knee), Lachie Henderson (knee) and Scott Selwood (ankle) all having injury-interrupted pre-seasons. The club's medical staff will be working overtime in the next fortnight to try to get as many players up as they can for round one against Melbourne.

Essendon: The Bombers are prone to giving up plenty of points and they need to find a way of minimising that prospect in the home and away season. However, they can also score quickly too. Essendon has some firepower up forward with James Stewart (three goals), Jake Stringer (two), Josh Green (two) and Devon Smith (two) all impacting the scoreboard. Essendon needs to find a way of trapping the ball inside its forward 50 to make the most of its opportunities. The club's team defence still needs plenty of work.

WATCH: Irish Cat goes bang

NEW FACES

Geelong: Tim Kelly was not quite as influential as against Gold Coast, but the mature-age midfielder is a likely round one debutant after collecting 18 disposals against the Bombers. Charlie Constable was again impressive through the midfield, racking up 10 touches and making the most of his opportunities in there with Dangerfield out of the game. Gryan Miers was quiet against the Bombers but is in contention for one of the small forward spots in the Cats' forward line.

Essendon: Former Bulldog Jake Stringer booted two fantastic goals to go with 13 disposals, spending time in the midfield and forward line. Running defender Adam Saad's pace was on show as usual, while Devon Smith was among the Bombers' best with 22 touches and two goals.

WATCH: The Package shows Essendon fans his wares

NEXT UP

The Bombers will have 12 days to prepare for their round one clash against last year's Grand Finalists Adelaide at Etihad Stadium on March 23. Geelong has exactly a fortnight before facing Melbourne at the MCG on March 25.
