Essendon vs Collingwood Preview


Essendon reached a new low last weekend when they were embarrassed at home against Fremantle by 48-points in front of an annoyed home crowd. It marked their lowest score this season, and their efforts were questioned for not the first time this season.

Ben Ruttenโ€™s side has fallen away from the blue-collar football that saw them finish the back half of the season strongly and finish in a finals spot. They have conceded the most points per game (108) out of any team in. the competition.

However, they will be bolstered by the inclusions of Jake Stringer and Zach Merrett, who return prematurely from their respective injuries.

Meanwhile, the Magpies fell to their third defeat on the trot in a valiant seven-point loss to the Lions. Despite being predicted to lose heavily, they managed to stick around Brisbane to give themselves a chance, a strong sign for a team in a rebuild.

Collingwood has been impressive so far in this campaign, and now it is time to turn that into four points on the biggest stage of the season against their arch-rivals. They enter the game with a tall forward line, which could prove dangerous for the relatively short Bomberโ€™s defence.

Matches like these are always hard to predict, considering form can be irrelevant heading into ANZAC Day. Once the final post ends, it could be anyoneโ€™s game, but weโ€™ll back the Magpies this time around.
