Game Chat – Collingwood vs Brisbane

Written by Huttabito on August 11 2018

WHERE AND WHEN: Etihad Stadium, Saturday August 11, 7.25pm

SUMMARY
Collingwood should win well enough to sew up a finals berth, but this encounter has all the hallmarks of a danger game. The fast track under the roof at Etihad Stadium might well provide the ideal setting for the nothing-to-lose Lions to be the party poopers. The Pies have been challenged physically and mentally as a horrific casualty list and a series of formidable opponents have taken their toll, with the Woods winning just one of their past four games to jeopardise their spot in the top eight. Fresh in the memory is the exhilarating round seven clash between the clubs in which Brisbane almost upset Collingwood in a free-flowing shootout at the Gabba. The Lions have lost three in a row but two of them were by under a goal, and a big scalp on the run home would further vindicate the club’s bold new direction.

 

LAST FIVE TIMES
R7, 2018, Collingwood 19.7 (121) d Brisbane Lions 18.6 (114) at the Gabba

R21, 2014, Brisbane Lions 18.15 (123) d Collingwood 8.8 (56) at the MCG

    1. I’m asking the same question, but I can’t go Grundy… I need someone who willoutscore him. I think I’m going Macrae. Kelly went massive last week.
      And I find it psychologically difficult to put the C on a last-game of the rounder, ie Cripps.
