The Patrick Dangerfield-inspired Cats are on the prowl for another finals series.

Their win over Brisbane last Sunday was almost effortless as several key players found form.

Essendon found the going tough against Port Adelaide, but we’ve already seen that when they get a sniff, this ragtag team can put it together.

Can the Bombers spring an almighty upset? Or will the Cats leap, momentarily at least, into the Top 4?
