Game notes: It’s been an unusual start for Collingwood – a surprise 80-point loss to the Sydney Swans in round one was followed by a last-gasp win against Richmond. The Magpies go in as favourites and will be hoping they can win a little more comfortably against St Kilda. The Saints will present a challenge though, after being disappointed with their performance against the Western Bulldogs last Saturday in Nick Riewoldt’s 300th game. Coach Alan Richardson will seek a much better effort at winning the contested ball and pressuring the opposition. Important Collingwood midfielder Steele Sidebottom serves the last game of his suspension, so the Saints will have confidence they can win the midfield battle. Magpie Travis Cloke looms as a danger man up forward – he kicked 1.3 against the Tigers in a much-improved performance after his round one debacle.
Mottsy’s Tip: Pies by 25 points.
