Where and When: Optus Stadium, Saturday 3rd October at 8:10pm (AEST)
Last time they met: Rd 8, 2020: Collingwood 18.3 (111) def West Coast 6.9 (45) at Optus Stadium
Form: West Coast: LWLWW
Match Preview: It’s the 2018 Grand Final replay! But this time, these two teams seem to be irrelevant. At their best, the Pies and Eagles are good enough to challenge for a premiership but sadly injuries have taken their toll and both teams will struggle to progress to a preliminary final.
Despite those injuries, these are two proud teams who will rate their chances no matter how banged up they are. Expect a hot, if somewhat messy, encounter!
Thommo Watch: I’ve always been critical of Jack Darling in finals so he simply has to stand up tonight. Can he bring his regular-season form to finals and play the role of the Eagles’ big dog?
Thommo’s Tip: Home ground advantage wins this one: Eagles by 18 points.
