Collingwood vs St Kilda Preview


The Magpies couldn’t quite get the four points against the Dockers last time out.

Despite trailing for the majority of the match, a new-look Collingwood never cowered away when it looked gone. There was a lot of structure offensively, which resulted in taking 14 marks inside 50.

Robert Harvey’s first match in charge will leave Pies fans with optimism as a new era at the club begins. I believe you can expect Brodie Grundy to relish under Ratten as he has more freedom moving up forward.

Meanwhile, the Saints shocked the reigning premiers with a 40-point triumph.

Brett Ratten’s side was brilliant defensively, restricting the Tigers to their lowest score at the MCG since 1927, which has turned into a fortress in recent years.

St Kilda dominated the Tigers in the middle of the ground, and you can expect them to do so again on the weekend. The Saints managed 19 more clearances, with Luke Dunstan and Jack Steele dominating.

There have been some obvious blockbusters between these sides in the past, but I believe the Saints could edge out the Magpies on Sunday.

*Teams are yet to be reduced to 22, four omissions still need to be made from the eight-man bench.
