Last year, the Cats were the most improved side in the competition, having jumped 8 spots on the ladder from the previous year. This year, they will be looking to take the next two steps - making a grand final and then winning it. Zach Tuohy and Aaron Black have arrived at the Cattery, and Jackson Thurlow is back from injury. Tuohy and Thurlow fix the issue of ball movement out of the defensive 50, and Black provides an extra dimension to the forward 50 setup. The Cats have a strong winning culture, and with a core of players that includes J Selwood, Hawkins, Taylor, Lonergan, Duncan and Mackie - these blokes know what it takes to win flags. Write the Cats off at your own peril is all that I can say. Personally I believe they will be the biggest roadblock standing in the way of the Bulldogs quest for back to back flags. Do you rate the Cats for 2017 and how do you like their chances of winning their 4th flag in 11 years?
