WCE 18.3.111 defeat COLL 6.9.45

Incredible stuff. Nathan Buckley (on his birthday) watches his Pies get smashed.

As we have said, the Pies have plenty out (Pendles, Howe, Steele, De Goey and Varcoe) but that kind of performance is something we haven’t seen the Pies put in since 2017.

On the other hand, the Eagles. Wow. Seven goals straight for Josh Kennedy, Nic Naitanui dominance, and an even and ominous midfield display.

The Eagles just announced themselves as premiership favourties. Clearly.

Kennedy is on song.

They’ve thrown Brody Mihocek onto Josh Kennedy. Mihocek was drafted from the VFL as a defender.

Hasn’t worked. Kennedy has just kicked a SEVENTH! STRAIGHT. NO BEHINDS.

WCE 104 COLL 36

One of the finest performances of his career.

Again, the Pies have plenty of players out, but in this condensed season and the game being played as it is these days, six goals is nothing to sneeze at.

Kennedy has been amazing.

Comes with a tribute from the player …

Darling and Ryan kick goals quickly to start the quarter. The Eagles have kicked 14 of the last 15.

Really entertaining footy from the Eagles. There’s about 20,000 fans in at Optus Stadium, most of the Eagles, and their team is putting on a clinic.

The Pies have a draw so percentage is not of the upmost important for Collingwood.

How would you approach this term then? They need to finish with a bit of confidence.

Or do they rest players given the packed fixture ahead?

Grundy is starting forward.

Six unanswered goals in that term. Kennedy, Naitanui dominating against the best defence and ruck in the league respectively.

WCE 13.2.80 to COLL 5.6.36.

West Coast are well and truly over their early season woes. Their midfield has been superb today.

Kennedy, from the Dom Sheed pocket, kicks his fifth.

Ugly stuff for Collingwood fans.
