Game Chat – Collingwood v Essendon

Written by Father Dougal on April 25 2018

WHERE AND WHEN: MCG, Wednesday April 25, 3.20pm

SUMMARY: The hype surrounding the annual Anzac Day clash between Collingwood and Essendon has lifted significantly after both clubs posted terrific victories in round four – the Magpies shocking Adelaide with an Adelaide Oval hammering, and the Bombers rebounding strongly to inflict Port Adelaide’s first loss of the season. This is a clash between a Pies side that always gives its all but often lacks polish, and a Bombers team that boasts class everywhere but lacks consistency. Magpie Brodie Grundy has been the AFL’s best ruckman this season and midfielder Steele Sidebottom has also entered the elite category, while the Pies will need to limit the influence of Dons defender Michael Hurley and counter a dangerous attack boasting Jake Stringer, James Stewart and Joe Daniher, with the latter finally discovering some late touch against the Power.

 

LAST FIVE TIMES:
R16, 2017, Essendon 18.9 (117) d Collingwood 12.8 (80) at the MCG
R5, 2017, Essendon 15.10 (100) d Collingwood 11.16 (82) at the MCG
R5, 2016, Collingwood 22.10 (142) d Essendon 11.7 (73) at the MCG
R23, 2015, Essendon 14.11 (95) d Collingwood 14.8 (92) at the MCG
R4, 2015, Collingwood 9.15 (69) d Essendon 6.13 (49) at the MCG

 

Father Dougal’s Tip: The Side with Mason Cox of course! Pies by 6

  5. Murray is my only player in the match on field for me, Cox R3. Interesting how much more I’m watching the game rather than thinking about scores and Supercoach. Not that I’m not thinking about Supercoach, just not as much.

    The Pies really seems to have upped their game this season.

    1. I do enjoy watching a game with none of your players in it more. Actually watch the game for what it is rather than worried about your players scoring.

    1. No we’re not. Just need a good coach. Don’t want to be harsh but he had his easy ride and can’t get anything out of this list. There being stifeld. Need someone to challenge them instead of cuddling them.
