Game notes: With both sides chasing their first win of the year, this massive Friday night encounter at the SCG takes on even more significance. If Sydney loses it will be the first time since 1999 that they have started a season 0-3, while Collingwood is in the same boat – and they went on to win the wooden spoon that same year. The Pies came to Sydney last year and got smashed by 80 points, and if they can’t clean up their goal-kicking act, it could be another tough night. Gun forwards Lance Franklin (eight goals) and Sam Reid (nine) have been in brilliant touch to start the season, but they’re the only ones with multiple goals after two rounds, and that needs to change if John Longmire’s men are to turn the year around.
Thommo’s Tip: Sydney by 40 points.
