Game Chat – Collingwood v St Kilda

Written by Motts on May 18 2019

Where and when: MCG, Saturday May 18, 1.45pm AEST

Last time they met: Marvel Stadium, round nine, 2018: St Kilda 10.12 (72) lost to Collingwood 15.10 (100)

The Saints surprised the Pies by scoring four successive goals to lead by eight points early in the third term before Collingwood rattled on seven of the next eight en route to a 28-point win. Woods star Jordan De Goey bagged a career-best six goals.

What it means for Collingwood: A chance to make amends for a sluggish performance against Carlton and to maintain pressure on top side Geelong.

What it means for St Kilda: An opportunity to break a three-game losing streak and claim a big scalp in the process.

How Collingwood wins: Ruck dominance and a vast spread of scoring options.

How St Kilda wins: Fanatical ferocity at the contest, full-field accountability and the kind of stoppage ascendancy Carlton had over the Pies for periods last round.

The stat: Since St Kilda held Collingwood to an atrocious total of 4.17 (41) on its way to a 28-point win at Docklands in round three, 2010, the Magpies have triumphed in four of their past five meetings there by an average of 40 points.

The match-up: Jack Billings v Levi Greenwood.

With Billings (ranked No.177 in the Official AFL Player Ratings) being a terrific playmaker for the Saints, the Pies could consider reassigning Greenwood (No.391) to his old tagging role.

It’s a big week for: Josh Thomas

After enjoying a breakout 38-goal season last year, the classy small forward has been steady without being spectacular, tallying eight goals in the opening eight rounds. Slotted at least three goals on six occasions last year but is yet to do it once this year. This could be his day.

Big call: Saints hold sway until the final change when the Pies again explode with a match-winning burst.

Mottsy’s Tip: Hot Pies by 40 points

    1. They’ve gotta make money somehow.

      Use footywire instead. Much more user-friendly and it’s free 🙂

    1. Rowan Marshall. Have to wait til next week now, but Grundy will likely keep him down this week, so won’t be too late.
      He’s playing 1st RUC and has a bigger tank than most.

  9. Just turned the footy on. How bad did Treloar butcher it that first quarter? I see he only played half the quarter and racked up 10 touches, not bad. But scored just 14 points haha ffs, glad his only in my tech team

      1. Hey PJ,
        Sorry to you or anyone else who see it that way. I actually didn’t make that connection when I created the user name and certainly do not mean to offend.
        For the record my nickname is Gass and gassassination just had a nice ring to it.

    1. Needs to just slow his head down. Plays frantic. In soccer terms “he’s a headless chook”. Might just be trying too hard.

    1. You get the lowest score of Es in any single position I’m afraid. It’s to stop people exploiting the potential loophole.
      On the bright side, you’ll get some points rather than a donut

    2. in your situation , you needed to have moore on the bench , ainsworth on field & a player from a previous game , in this case WC/D’s , on the bench with the E on him

      if the WC/D’s player scores well
      you just switch ainsworth to the bench & moore onto the feild ,which will give you the WC/D’s emergency’s score

      if the WC/D’s player scores poorly first
      you leave ainsworth on field & get his score

  13. Hey John
    Parker finished on 30 but he gave a 50m penalty away late so may go backwards. If you have another option … TAKE IT!!

  16. Glad I bought Rowan Marshall this week. If he can score 90 against Reg it’s happy days. Has to play Gawn again and Martin soon, but can expect a 95 ave. from here and is/was priced at 86.
    F7 at worst you’d think?! Watching him live is even more impressive.
    Well done Saints … coulda shoulda woulda, but I’m proud. And we made some noise today. Belief is rising 🙂
