Trying to drive down to the coast in Easter Thursday traffic.... shudder. Team better leave around breakfast time to make sure they get there in time.and forget a home ground crowd.I heard that we can't play the match at the MCG due to the fact Collingwood agreed to play an amount of matches at Docklands, which sucks given it would my peference as well, not just for our club but for the round itself also as the Good Friday match is also staged at Docklands the following day, unless that match is played at the MCG as a result now and we play at Docklands on the Thursday.
"It’s understood the reason the MCG is off the cards for this match is because Collingwood contractually must play a certain amount of games at Marvel Stadium every year"Pies push for bold Easter fixture revamp amid latest COVID threatwww.foxsports.com.au
"Another option that has been discussed at Collingwood is the possibility of playing the game at Metricon Stadium, which is outside Brisbane’s ‘orange zone’. Under that plan, the Pies would look at flying in and flying out on the same day"
I’d rather swap for later in the year.
