Game Chat – Collingwood vs Port Adelaide

Written by Thommo on August 18 2018

WHERE AND WHEN: MCG, Saturday August 18, 1.45pm

SUMMARY
This critical MCG clash has must-win status for both teams, firstly to make the finals and secondly to push their top-four claims. Port Adelaide, which holds onto eighth spot by just a game, is ruing missed opportunities after losing four of its past five games but will be invigorated by its good recent record both against the Pies and at the MCG. The Power must now combat the loss of key forward Charlie Dixon for the rest of the season, which should provide some relief for the Pies’ small defence, while Port ruckman Paddy Ryder is also under an injury cloud, which could give Collingwood’s talented midfield brigade an armchair ride through Brodie Grundy’s tap work. The injury-hit Pies, who sit fifth, will be tough to toss at the MCG, where they have won five of their past seven games, the only blemishes being against League leaders Richmond and West Coast.

LAST FIVE MEETINGS
R21, 2017, Port Adelaide 14.14 (98) d Collingwood 10.11 (71) at Adelaide Oval
R14, 2017, Port Adelaide 13.15 (93) d Collingwood 9.8 (62) at the MCG
R11, 2016, Port Adelaide 19.11 (125) d Collingwood 7.16 (58) at the MCG
R15, 2015, Port Adelaide 9.12 (66) d Collingwood 9.9 (63) at Adelaide Oval
R19, 2014, Collingwood 11.10 (76) d Port Adelaide 10.10 (70) at the MCG

Thommo’s Tip: Pies by 20 points.

  1. Ryder named but clearly playing injured.
    Is it still worth running with grundy as vc?
    T/u yes grundy will dominate an unfit ryder
    T/d play it safe with danger as vc
