Game notes: Collingwood is a raging favourite to end a nine-game hoodoo against Hawthorn in this clash of apparent also-rans. The 3-5 Hawks have won three of their past four games but their faint finals hopes have seemingly been extinguished after losing key trio Cyril Rioli, Ben Stratton and James Frawley to long-term injuries. The 2-6 Pies will be without important swingman Ben Reid for up to a month but are likely to regain Adam Treloar and have a golden opportunity to build on their last-kick loss to flag fancy Greater Western Sydney at Spotless Stadium. The Pies have been competitive but inconsistent, which wasn’t helped by a crammed schedule, but will now be well rested following successive seven-day breaks. A Collingwood win would be their first against Hawthorn since the nail-biting 2011 preliminary final – Mick Malthouse’s second-last game as the Pies’ coach.

Father Dougal’s Tip: Pies by 20

While we do our best to update posts with end of quarter scores, we aren’t always online so if you have access to the scores and see they haven’t gone into the Comments section of this post, the Community would love it if you could help us out.

    1. I gave him the captaincy in Fantasy (although he’s pretty much my perma-captain in that code at the moment), so I’m pretty excited right now.

      Back in SuperCoach-land, Captain Pendlebury is working out very well for me after missing out on Dangerfield last night.


  2. Bit the bullet and brought Adams in last week. What a gun. Would have to be close to the best ex-Giant going around. Never seems to waste a possie.


    1. Few weeks ago I bought him in despite a BE of 125 for scores of 120, 114 and 113 with another decent one coming up. You just know you need him in your team if you want to win.


  3. Mitchell needs 15 disposals in the last quarter to match the record for most disposals in a game. 16 to break it. Will be do it?

    TU: Yes
    TD: No

    And my screen just went dead……….we’ll have the scores up as soon as they’re functioning…..


  8. Good to see treloar come back firing. Maybe he needed the week of to get his ankle right and might go on a bit of a form run now? Heres hoping!


  9. To those who actually saw the game (not me) –

    Which side are you on? I’m talking from a football perspective, not just Supercoach…
    TU Tom Mitchell had an amazing game
    TD If Titch had a great game, then why wasn’t he tagged? Because he didn’t have a great game.
