Game Chat – West Coast v Collingwood

Written by Father Dougal on July 26 2020

Where and when: Sunday 26th July at Optus Stadium

What it means for the Eagles: A win should put that at 5th overall, and that would be something after their season start. A loss puts them back in the pack. 

What it means for the Magpies: A win puts them 2-3 on the ladder, depending on how things go for Brisbane. Being able to focus through all the off field stuff would be big. Losing leaves them 2 points up on the pack. 

Supercoach Watch:

West Coast: Yeo, Gaff, Nicnat. A lot of players who have been off and on, and their owners would like to to be on now that they are at home. 

Collingwood: Adams, Treloar, Crisp, Maynard. Lots of well owned and performing players. 


Father Dougal’s Watch: Grundy. Of course he will score well, no jinks, but how well? Well enough to keep people from going to Gawn or Neale to captain? I have to get up at 4 in the morning to see his score and decide what to do with him! Hopefully easier for everyone else. 

Father Dougal’s Tip: I expect this to be close. Either team could implode, but I would be surprised. The hamster and fear say to go with the home team, but I think the Pies are going to pull off a close upset. Collingwood by 3

      1. No worries CT. In the meantime, can I recommend you set up an avatar through ? It’ll make it really easy for you to distinguish yourself from any imitators.

        Enjoy the rest of your weekend!


  1. Looks like pies might have a very late change. Not sure who yet. Atu is warming up in the rooms.


  2. Wow darcy cameron with 2 goals in the first qtr and one of those from 50! Would love for him to get games ahead of Cox and make some cash for me


    1. He is my F6 in lieu of Stephen Hill.

      I should have put the VC on him instead of Grundy 😛

      *Hands Captain’s Armband to Gawn.
      Bring us home big fella.


  3. Cautioned people against VC’ing Grundy.

    Nic Nat plays him well and a tall Eagles side deprives him of marks.


    1. I was trying to hear your warning & swap to McRae a couple of mins prior to there game but he was locked out.


  4. Kennedy looks like he’s going to kick a dozen and the Pies look rattled. The Eagles seem to grow an extra foot and find an extra gear whenever they play the Pies the last few games. Went VC on Treloar instead of Grundy but looking like it’s going to be Captain Gawn.


  5. West Coast is doing a good job stopping Grundy .Captain Gawn Brisbane Lion ruck is injured and they inexperience ruck in play should be a good score.


  6. HALF TIME – WCE LEADING THE PIES 7.2.44 TO 5.3.33 after 4 goals to Kennedy who looks like he’s going to tear the Pies backline apart.

      1. Through Chillo on Twitter, he had a screenshot of SC Gold stats ‘Most popular Captain rd%’
        Was unclear whether it was last week or this


  7. wow , grundy , WTF ,
    will be the no 1 trade target in a couple of weeks , unless he’s carrying an injury
    WC look like they’re enjoying having Shuey back in the team


  8. Hurn can go and have a rest on the bench and not come back. Will be picking him up at a discount after this week so don’t want him to score too well.


  9. would think WC are the flag favorites now
    with so many of their games @ home
    & the GF probably over there aswell


  10. SC scoring is crap, Nic Nat is slaying it, is easily the difference and yet isn’t even looking at scoring the ton.
