GAME NOTES:
On ladders positions alone, third-placed Geelong should enjoy a percentage-booster against 13th side Collingwood. But the Cats certainly won’t allow themselves the luxury of such thoughts, as they were expected to win easily in their past two clashes with the Pies, only to suffer comprehensive losses on both occasions at the MCG. This time, though, the Pies will be without skipper Scott Pendlebury and ruckman Brodie Grundy, both of whom were superb in those upset victories. The Pies might be missing several key players but their gutsy effort against Port Adelaide showed they still have plenty of spirit, and they will fancy their chances of winning four in a row against Geelong for the first time since 1960. This will be the Cats’ final game at the MCG before the finals, and they’ll want to make it count.
