Game Chat – Collingwood vs Brisbane

Written by Huttabito on May 28 2017

Venue: MCG 1:10pm AEST

Last Time They Met: 
R8, 2016, Collingwood 20.23 (143) d Brisbane Lions 10.5 (65) at the Gabba
R1, 2015, Collingwood 12.14 (86) d Brisbane Lions 11.8 (74) at the Gabba
R21, 2014, Brisbane Lions 18.15 (123) d Collingwood 8.8 (56) at the MCG
R10, 2013, Collingwood 14.16 (100) d Brisbane Lions 7.9 (51) at the Gabba
R7, 2012, Collingwood 17.14 (116) d Brisbane Lions 8.10 (58) at the Gabba

Game Summary: Collingwood’s season – and presumably Nathan Buckley’s coaching career – hangs by a thread at 3-6 after producing a Houdini act against Hawthorn, but this Sunday afternoon encounter with the bottom team represents a golden opportunity for a welcome percentage booster. The Lions, after upsetting Gold Coast in round one, have lost their past eight games by an average of 44 points. In their most recent losses to Hawthorn and Adelaide, they were competitive before being overpowered in the second half – a pattern that’s likely to continue here. In-form Dayne Beams, who will lead the Lions against his old club for the first time, will no doubt receive a torrid reception from his former teammates and will need all the help he can get against Pendlebury, Treloar, Wells & co. If ever the Pies are going to fill their boots, this is it.

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. Trying to decide about captaining Pendles vs JJK. Just saw they plan to keep him in the mids this match. Been thinking JJK all day, but Pendles so much safer….

    Pendles Cpt?

      1. No complaints here either. But I really like the kid, and I’m not sure lumping him with a tagging role is the best thing for his development. He can actually play a bit.

  3. So I’m currently at the game, and I’m fairly confident I just saw Jasper Pittard walking around.

    Rhys Mathieson better watch out

    1. Thommo’s article at the start of the year showed Martin averaged 56ish when either Smith/West were in the team. He’s on track!

  5. a handful of weeks ago I traded out Treloar with the vast majority of you with the thumbs down not to.. did I listen.. of course not, because I’m an idiot, putting my hand up.. lesson learned.. as a second year player, hopefully that’s my biggest stupid move of the season.. live and learn

      1. Treloar had done NOTHING for about 8 weeks. Fair reason to trade.

        The extreme differences in scoring from previous seasons make some premos no longer premo. If the methodology of scoring was more open we’d have greater trust.

        1. Yep. Long time player, first time rule breaker going sideways on Treloar the other week. Picked up Howe this week too and have been punished for my crimes
