Geelong leads by two goals at the main break.
Jimmy Bartel said the Cats have been both more physical and cleaner with the ball.
“That led to the 17-8 inside 50 count in the second quarter,” Jimmy said.

Geelong has made a late change today.
Brandan Parfitt is out, with Zach Guthrie coming into the 22.
Sydney is unchanged.
Geelong hosts Sydney on Saturday fresh from a confidence-boosting away win over Port.
The Swans, meanwhile, have to make the trek without star players Dan Hannebery and Lance Franklin.
But if Sydney learnt anything from their loss to Adelaide last week, it’s that teams can win without key players!
