**Where and when:** MCG, 1:45pm (AEST)

**Last time they met**: R17 2020: Collingwood 10.8 (68) DEF Gold Coast 6.10 (46) at the Gabba.

With three Alex Sexton goals early in the first quarter, the Suns jumped out to a 12-point lead, but Collingwood overturned a deficit at the stoppages and cranked up the pressure to arrest momentum. Playing his first game since round seven after undergoing hand surgery, Jordan De Goey was simply magnificent, kicking four goals and gifting another to Brody Mihocek in the victory.

**Match Preview: **Nathan Buckley is well and truly under the pump at 1-5 but will be coming into this match at home reasonably confident that his charges get the job done. The Suns will also be confident after toppling Sydney by 40(!) last week on the back of some outstanding play by their young guns.

**Motts Watch: **

**Mottsy’s Tip:**Pies by 5 (tipping record 14/18).

Is the Grundy injury rumour earlier in the week true ?

No.

Thanks

I’ve made him Capt so it’s probably pending…….

Can’t do scores this arvo as at the MCG for this game – spelling mistake on the banner not a great start Pies supporters!

Enjoy the game, Lisa. (Tonihgt)

Grundy did get to 100 with about 5 to go in that quarter … then somehow his scores went backwards, despite getting +2 etc … 150 from him would be nice to not worry about the C …

Grundy’s score on 126 – gets a free kick in the forward line, goes back and kicks the goal … and his score is still on 126 … has not moved in the last couple of minutes of play … seriously … that will do me CD … just rubbish

Suns have a big win at the G … and the Pies have lots of issues to look at going forwards!!

75 points still to be allocated at the moment

Grundy ripped off at the end there and at 129 his score may not be good enough as the VC … might have to run the risk with Gawn …

I’ll be taking Grundy score too much to risk macca, robbed of more though.

AND – Sanity prevails!! Grundy scored updated to 144 … that’s more like it.

Is there any chance Sharp gets named as the injury sub tonight??? Anyone know in next couple of minutes??

Didn’t chaos theory say sharp was named to play in vfl yesterday?

he may have mate – I’ll have to check … Sharp will have to be my C to take Brodie’s score …

Hi Macca, the Brisbane VFL side doesn’t play until tomorrow so there is a chance that Sharp could be the medical sub.?

Berry I think maybe the one but I don’t know for certain?

I am also waiting to see if Sharp or Fullarton is the sub?

And yes 144 for Grundy a bit better.
