Game Chat – Collingwood v St Kilda

Written by Thommo on June 20 2020

Where and when: Saturday 20th June at 4:35pm (AEST)

Last time they met: Rd 9, 2019: Collingwood 17.10 (112) def St Kilda 10.11 (71)

What it means for the Pies: After a fast start last week, the Pies couldn’t find the scoreboard and they were lucky to hold on for a draw. Not only will they want to prove they can kick a winning score this week, the Pies will also want to show they can defeat the newest graduate of the school of Clarko.

What it means for the Saints: Despite capitulating to North in Round 1, the Saints have displayed improved effort and determination this season. If they want to be taken seriously, they need to push the Pies and show that Ratten’s Saints are for real.

Thommo’s Watch: Like most Supercoaches, I’ll be closely watching Brodie Grundy to see just how sore he is!!

Thommo’s Tip: Pies by 6 points.

  1. Should I field Pittonet over Grundy?

    Bear with me, Grundy is apparently sore and coming up against Marshall & Ryder – whereas Pittonet scored 134 v Gawn and managed 23 hitouts to Gawn’s 34 last week.

    T.U: Yes, compelling case. Field Pittonet.

    T.D: No, you fool. Stick with Grundy.


  2. Key points from Gill :

    Bombers Demons suspended – tested positive this morning, all players Bombers tested last night- no other Bombers tested positive at this stage – health dept notified – other matches will proceed as normal – bombers club will be closed and cleaned – working on close contact info now for all players and further testing to come

    Suns game now at 3:05pm tomorrow ,… other matches also moving


  3. So with the Melb-Ess game now postponed tomorrow, due to a positive COVID19 player reading, wondering how will that effect Supercoach and coaches with players (inc Captain Gawn) in their teams? It was always going to happen, but such a shame its in the 2nd round back from the break.


    1. Donut in my mids, held Kelly but I can’t cove Oliver

      Running with Grundy VC and I can cover Gawn with Pittonet who I brought in just for cash on the bench


    1. Gill says its been postponed so will be played I think at a later date – ramifications will be huge for games going forward.


    2. unknown at this stage – I think they now have to undergo tests over a few days … you would think it wont be played this week now?? Not sure though … think they have to wait more than a week for incubation period …

      Based on what Gill said, McKenna’s had 5 previous tests, and one Friday which showed irregularity … tested again today and now positive …

      I think you have to leave out any players from those clubs to be safe … and sucks that Noths game just happened as I could have moved Cameron in for Comben if not for that


      1. Something about that sequence of events doesn’t make sense to me.

        I hope McKenna is being tested again today.


          1. No, I mean a second test today. Yesterday’s test wasn’t positive, it was indeterminate, which is weird. Especially when no-one else in the group he’s been in for the past month has tested positive. And he has no symptoms.


            1. lots of people without symptoms mate – WHO reckons it’s as much as 40% across the world – the numbers in the US were apparently 56% didn’t have symptoms, but passed it on and look at their numbers and the death rate …

              Things like the protest marches, and easing off of the lockdowns, even in this country are far too soon … I know its not great for economy, people’s jobs etc … but what price do we place on a life??


  4. Should get rid of the 50k, just do highest round score gets the 1k.
    Give 2-3 trades every round and everyone focus on leagues.


  5. I’ve got gawn, petracca, viney, McGrath, Smith,townsend, rivers all on ground. Kelly late out.
    I think I’m just going to not care too much for fantasy this season


  6. I’m not sure of the protocols in the AFL around testing etc … but my understanding of the virus is that it has a 7 to 10 day incubation period before people may show positive tests …

    As I understand it, in other instances in the real world, before people can be ‘çleared’ they have to have at least three negative tests … several days apart … it would be good to know the AFL protocols now …

    If that is the case this match surely can’t be played later this week??


    1. You are right . It makes no sense to test everyday for a positive. Even the negative people who got in contact with him have up to 10days. They shouldn’t have opened international travel. Almost all new cases are related to overseas import


  7. Is it worth using a trade to replace an ess or Melb player or do we think SC might have a plan?

  9. I feel sorry for the SC administration. No matter what they do they will cop it from somewhere. Wisdom of solomon needed.

    Howe and Cameron not rewarding owners – Grundy with a 50 point quarter more like it!!


  11. I’ve sent a query to the SC official site – doubt we’ll get an answer quickly … but it’s going to be interesting to see what happens …


    1. Your thoughts Macca, (and others) please,

      What do you think of a best 18 this week,

      …..and 5 trades next week if no game(s) – bit like a bye round format?????


      1. Some won’t have 18, I’d say best 18 but give the non playing players the score they are priced to average.

        This way it covers all the subs people have/haven’t made


      2. absolutely no idea mate – i’ve been trying to find something, but just cant find anything. How do you allow scores for people missing a Max Gawn score? (average sounds good Mutley!) … but they may just say “bad luck” … those that didn’t have maxxie and have Jacobs … good luck to you?? … who knows …

        I’ve moved as many out as I could as well and playing the likes of Brown, King, Cameron etc on field now too … it looks ugly …


        1. …..really bad on mine too, that’s why I’m worried if they do the averages, will they do the bench????


  12. Howe not really performing like the last 2 rounds. Could this be a reminder of what happens when chasing points?


    1. he’s playing a lock down role on Marsh I think … which is limiting his intercepts etc … also, Saints not really testing them … but yes, disappointing …. mind you 11 kicks, 2 marks, 1 handball at 91% and only 51????

    Grundy pretty much did nothing that quarter … Max King continues to be afraid of leather poisoning and so too D Cameron …

    There’s still 330 points to be awarded so some serious scaling to come!!

    Shift your C away from Grundy folks and go to a Neale or Fyfe or someone if you have them!!


  15. There’s something wrong with that scoring – I saw Cameron make some more kicks / possessions than that – he basically hasn’t moved in the second half???


    1. Stats only stating he made 2 possies for the game. 5 tackles and 2 marks however. I didn’t watch it so I wouldn’t know if he had more involvement
