The Crows murdered North Melbourne last weekend with a dominate display that had Mark Robinson calling for drastic lengths to drop senior players in Dal Santo, Bastinac and Wells. Collingwood would do well to avoid similar criticism by putting in a big effort here. Etihad Stadium hosts this one at 4.35pm
The Pies have lost Steele Sidebottom to a hand injury, which dampens their ball-winning ability significantly. They’ll be heavily reliant on Pendlebury and Swan today, as will most of us.
Phil Walsh dismissed concerns over Rory Sloane missing this week after he was seen with a compression bandage on his lower leg and not training yesterday. Another big performance after his 145-point game in Round 1 will have many wondering how he flew under the radar during pre-season. He’s currently in less than 6% of sides.
Patrick Dangerfield is another who could dominate this one, with 6 votes on the 2014 Brownlow night coming against the Pies.
MJ’s Tip: Crows by 21.
