Game Chat – Geelong vs Collingwood

Written by Thommo on October 10 2020

Where and when: GABBA, 7:40pm (AEDT)

Last time they met: Rd 7, 2020: Pies 8.9 (57) def Cat 5.5 (35) at Optus Stadium

Form: Geelong: L (Tigers), W, L, W, W

Collingwood: W, L, W, L, W

Match Preview: After shutting down the Eagles’ rapid ball movement in the West last week, the Pies will be quietly confident that they can repeat the dose this week against Geelong. Historically they have faired well against the Cats who are fresh from yet another finals disappearing act against Port Adelaide.

With both these teams capable at finding the ball through the midfield, this match will likely be decided by defence. Whoever can stem the opponent’s forward line should win the match. Will Hawkins remind the AFL why he won the Coleman for 2020 or will Mason Cox get the GABBA rocking with the chant of “USA, USA”?

Thommo Watch: Look, I won’t lie, I hate Geelong. I’m talking hatred at unhealthy levels. So I will be blindly cheering the Pies on for the first time in 2020.  Yes, even De Goey.
Thommo’s Tip: Pies by 5 points and another heart attack for their supporters.
