Game notes: Two inconsistent clubs, two coaches under pressure – how can you possibly predict what’s going to happen here? Collingwood has won just five games this season but been competitive in most matches before falling right away against Essendon last weekend. The six-goal loss seemed to spell the end of their remote finals chances and brought a new wave of pressure on out-of-contract coach Nathan Buckley. Buckley’s Gold Coast counterpart Rodney Eade is also feeling the heat after the Suns’ poor showing against Sydney last weekend. Gold Coast is barely clinging to a mathematical chance of making the top eight and must deal with the Magpies to keep their dream flickering. With some experienced personnel expected to return, the Suns should have the midfield to match the Pies and the forwards to take advantage, but with these two teams, you just never know.

Thommo’s Tip: Gold Coast by 18 points.

  2. Witts might be slightly better in the ruck but Grundy is way better around the ground. I reckon they kept the right guy…


      1. Oh ya mean the ruck! Yeah Witt’s is way betterer at that.

        How did ya make the edit button work? Now that ya fixed ya typo me post look’s stupid!


  3. Ha ha, darn auto correct. Grundy is the one I’d choose, but I don’t care who plays well as long as we win. Go pies…


  4. Ha ha, i saw your post and wondered why you were talking about who’s better in bed. Then I saw what was in my post and luckily had enough time to press the edit button


  5. I’m just using Google on my phone so no idea what browser I’m on. In regards to the captaincy, i think Adams will be our next captain but Pendles has got another couple of years left in my opinion. I do like Maynard a lot though, my daughter is getting his number on her Pies jumper


  6. Me too. It’s been a disappointing year from both of them. To be fair, the team as a whole have been disappointing


  7. Sideways traded GAZ to avoid donut last week , knew he would dominate this week as two league opponents held him. bought Cripps by the way, i do wonder if he will play out all games though!


    1. SC is full of if only, if only JPK and Greenwood weren’t out last week I hold Gaz ,but no complaints , Gaz is a gun!

  9. It’s like GAJ saw what Danger did at the G today and felt a need to remind us all who the true king of SC is. All hail King Gary.
