INs/OUTs:

Melbourne

In: Jack Viney, Ben Kennedy

Out: Jeff Garlett (Om.), James Harmes (Om.)

Collingwood

In: Marley Williams, Tom Phillips, Jarrod Witts, Jonathon Marsh

Out: Adam Oxley (Om.), Travis Cloke (Om.), Matthew Goodyear (Om.), Alan Toovey (Om.)

Game notes: Remember when this match was a automatic victory for the Pies? Now after 2 straight victories over Collingwood, the Dees are finally the favourite going into a Queen’s Birthday clash. Having defeated the Pies easily in Round 4, the Demons should post their 6th win for the year and keep their dreams of finals alive.

That said, the Pies have upset Geelong and pushed the Doggies in recent weeks, so on their day they can challenge anyone. With Cloke again out of the side and the inexperienced forward line duo of Cox and White carrying the load, this match could come down to whether the Pies can score enough goals to snatch victory.

The 6 Points

1. Melbourne is ranked equal second for centre clearances, averaging 14.5 per game. Max Gawn is the No.1-ranked ruckman this season with a total of 457 hit-outs.

2. Jack Watts enjoyed one of his best games against Collingwood earlier this season, kicking four goals in Melbourne’s 35-point win.

3. Melbourne has now won the past two clashes between the sides, ending Collingwood’s dominance. The Magpies had won the previous five games including two wins by more than 80 points.

4. The Demons continue to be the highest ranked side kicking for goal this season, with an accuracy rating of 57.7 per cent. The Magpies have been well below that, travelling at 51 per cent.

5. If the Demons win, it will be the first time since 1988 they have defeated Collingwood twice in the same season.

6. Gawn is charging up the AFL Player Ratings, rising from 295th in the competition at the start of the season to 87th after the weekend. 

Thommo’s tip: Melbourne by 12 points

  7. Geez Gawn is rating very low for a killer game. 30 points below AF score.

    Josh Smith on field a major fail too. Might not make 2500 🙁

    1. Agree with Ben. 2 goals more than pendles, 20 hitouts more, basically well in front with every stat.

      Over 50 AF points in front right now over Pendles, behind in SC score.

      Cmon, Champion Data. Your bias is showing far too much.

        1. An ineffective hit out is 0 points, a hit out that goes directly to an opponent is -1, and a hit out to advantage is 5 points… Not the easiest stats to find, I know supercoach doesn’t list them in a players profile, and i’m somewhat certain the AFL site doesn’t list them either

          1. Heard on the radio that less than 50% were too advantage.

            This is why no ruck has scored highly against the dogs as their midfield shark the opposing ruckman so they aren’t getting those +5

            2

            1. Even so… 27 possessions and 3 goals.

              If only one in 10 hitouts went to advantage and 1 in 3 went to direct disadvantage he’d be ahead on hitouts alone.

              That’s a 3:1 ratio of sharking.

  9. As a Collingwood fan, I can’t understand how Pendlebury got that score. There is no way he was the second best player on the field.

Game Chat – Melbourne v Collingwood

Written by Thommo on June 8 2015

Who doesn’t love an afternoon game at the MCG? And it’s a public holiday!

The Pies have won their last two games and played amazing football to overhaul the Kangaroos last week. They need to win today to remain in the top 4 and stay ahead of the chasing pack. With the exception of an upset win against the Bulldogs, Melbourne have struggled in recent weeks and they haven’t come close to defeating Collingwood since they drew in Round 12 of 2010. Collingwood is the obvious favourite but Melbourne do play their best football at the ‘G and they are capable of causing an upset here.

Thommo’s tip: Collingwood by 30 points.
