GEELONG captain Joel Selwood insists the Cats haven't addressed the club's horror post-bye record as they prepare for Thursday night's clash against Port Adelaide living in lockdown.
The Cats have gone 2-12 in matches after a week's break – including during the season and before finals – since 2012.
However, the skipper said it wasn't in their thinking ahead of the date with the Power off a 12-day break following the round 11 win over Collingwood.
"We haven't spoken about it. But we understand we're playing one of the sides that are going to be there at the end of the year and that's got us excited enough to get over there and really challenge ourselves," Selwood said on Tuesday.
"We need to get our balance right in playing well and just keep our concentration levels up to get the result we want."
