Venue: MCG at 3:20pm AEST
Last Time They Met: R9, 2016, Collingwood 16.8 (104) d Geelong 11.14 (80) at the MCG
Game Notes: It’s hard to fault the Cats at the moment. They’re undefeated with five wins and boast one of the hottest midfield brigades in the competition with not only Joel Selwood and Patrick Dangerfield influencing games but also the likes of Mitch Duncan, George Horlin-Smith, Jordan Murdoch and Cam Guthrie stepping up to more responsibility this year. The Magpies however are floundering, with their loss to Essendon on Anzac Day their fourth for the season. The heat has been well and truly turned up on coach Nathan Buckley and the club as a whole, with their inability to efficiently use the ball inside 50 continuing to be a problem. Captain Scott Pendlebury has had two quiet weeks and forward Alex Fasolo is suffering from kicking yips, although Jamie Elliot’s return after an injury-ruined 2016 and Daniel Wells’ debut after a slow summer are positives from the past fortnight.
Huttabito’s Tip: Geelong by 25 points (6-4)
