    A huge test awaits for both Collingwood and West Coast. Collingwood have to prove they are capable of winning the flag and West Coast will have to shave off their MCG woes.

    Only MCG win in the last 2 years was against Carlton earlier this season by 10 points

    Back in January it was just about making finals. Baby steps.

    Should be a good game, think we have the edge at the G though.

    Are Kennedy/Darling due back? Our defence struggled against the Bomber's talls today, so they could cause trouble if they return. Desperately need Moore back as we are very undersized at the moment. Should be a tight game.

    It’s a meaningless game.

    Kennedy and Darling aren’t there so I wouldn’t take anything away from it.

    Both listed as 1-2 weeks away this week, so probably won't be ready, especially for cross-country travel straight away.

    Anything above sneaking in to 8th place is an absolute bonus, given where things sat at the start of the year.

    Without a forward line the Eagles need to be competitive, no more, not the doom & gloom the Melbourne centric media will preach, the pies need to win, nothing less ..

    Why wouldn’t it be? Like a few Melbourne teams they travel interstate 5 times.

    Winners are grinners, both clubs have it in front of them, winning is the name of the game at the business end of OUR season, excuses & losers are bedfellows - be there !!!!

    Yeah go figure their home game is to be played in Melbourne.
    While we are at it how dare they play some of their away games against other Melbourne based clubs also in Melbourne

    The outrage.
