No rear vision for Collingwood as they aim to start fast again

Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley doesn’t think the Magpies’ upset loss to the Giants in last year’s preliminary final is relevant to what might happen this Friday night when the two teams clash in Sydney for the first time since that memorable meeting.

The Magpies charged back in the last quarter to kick the final nine scores of the match but fell just four points short after kicking 4.5 to the Giants’ 1.1 in a dramatic last term.

Collingwood were beaten by the Giants in last year's preliminary final but won't be using that as motivation this Friday night.

Buckley said after the game he felt worse than he had when Collingwood lost the 2018 grand final to the Eagles, but on Wednesday he said he had moved on from the preliminary final defeat.

“[The motivation] is there but it is not relevant for this weekend in any shape or form. I personally don’t see any real motivation from it, that game was won and run and they deserved their victory,” Buckley said.
