Game Chat – Brisbane vs Collingwood

Written by Thommo on September 4 2020

Where and When: GABBA, Friday 4 September at 7:50pm (AEST)

Last time they met: Rd 5: GABBA, Collingwood 18.15 (123) def Brisbane 8.13 (61)

Match Preview: This is the match of the very short round. The Pies were much improved against the Blues this week (it feels like just yesterday) and have historically enjoyed playing the Lions at the GABBA but they are facing a rested Brisbane fresh from their bye. If the Pies win this, they are back in a big way despite their injury list. If the Lions win this it doesn’t mean much except they remain in the top 2, but if they lose they appear to be pretenders despite the chance of a home Grand Final.

SC Watch: For the Lions, Lachie Neale should be back to his perma-Captain ways while a few Supercoaches are rocking Zorko and McCluggage.

For Collingwood, Taylor Adams has been consistent with Treloar out while Maynard and Grundy have been less consistent but have impressive ceilings on their day.

Thommo Watch: Grundy is my only SC player in this match!

Thommo’s Tip: Lions by 18 points.

  1. So many hopes rest on captain choice in this game,be it Neale or Grundy?
    After so many fails by elite players this round what will we get here?


    1. not to mention my fail yesterday after having traded Gawn in late the night before and thinking the match started at 5:40 … only to log on after being snowed under at work at 4:42 to check for final teams list and make sure it was OK to C gawn … and see the game had started!!! Damn!!

      Thinking roll with VC of Mitchell with 120 is the safe play yeah?? Good chance Neale gets tagged …


  2. I’m just hoping that the good Collingwood turns up tonight. Good record last 6 years but it’s a different Brisbane these days. I’m concerned greenwood will tag my captain tonight, Neale. Lastly, go pies….


  3. Alrighty tough decision here
    TU: Take VC Mitchell
    TD Run the risk of grundy or Neale tonight

    check comment for vote of these 2


    1. if you see my post above Tom – I posed same thought … i’m leaning towards taking the safe VC on Titch … thinking Neale cops greenwood tag and Grundy has been less than inspiring for a while now … but go with gut!


      1. Sorry macca I didnt see you had grundy in your comment too. Not feeling confident about any decision I make


    1. yeah mate I couldn’t make the call either way … then again, with the way this season is, and unless you are playing seriously in leagues for cash etc, then no better time to roll the dice on Neale I guess … which is what I could have done … anyway, I’ll happily sit with 120 a VC score and not stress watching the game … as a guide, post above asked about taking Oliver score at 130 and everyone said yes … so for 10 extra points, is the risk worth it??


      1. Oh spewing my HS yearly subscription has run out today! Do you really not get to see live scores without subscription?


  4. Starting to think it doesn’t matter how cheap Neale gets,with Miller and Curnow in the last three rounds,bringing him back in might just not be worth it.


  5. The scorers will make sure Neale still gets 130. Has had no influence whatsoever and already sitting on 30 5 mins into second and Pendlebury has dominated and is on 40


    1. can i have some of your trades if you have that many ‘luxury’ trades??!! – and the answer is, make sure you have premos in all your other positions on field before doing that type of trade


        1. I think you have to get Gawn – he’s still getting some pretty favourable scores from CD and seems better than the other rucks that way – so maybe target him next week as he will be at his lowest – your choice of Grundy or Goldie I guess .. but Goldie is being scored harshly by CD. Some ins for them this next round, it may help their midfield hold the ball.

          Tough choice with those players – they all still have cash to make – Riccardi should keep going well as long as Giants keep playing him … Close gives you DPP and Wicks is scoring OK too … so maybe Rivers as a trade out .. though he gives you DPP too.

          Good luck on your choices!!


    1. Ive been blessed, I brought him in round 8 for dev smith. Cant even imagine how many points that upgrade has brought me
