The Tigers are the team to beat this year and they will go into the first of the Preliminary Finals as the red hot favourites after a week off after thumping the Hawks in the first week of the finals.
The Magpies looked good in their win over the GWS Giants who were probably the toughest team to beat in Week 2 of the finals and will come into this match with plenty of confidence.
Despite Collingwood’s good run of form of late the Tigers will be fresh and should be too good for the Pies and will over run the Pies in the last Quarter to score a comprehensive win to set them up as the red hot favourites for the Grand Final.
