Sydney Swans vs Collingwood Magpies Preview
The last four games between the Swans and Collingwood have been absolute thrillers, and it wouldn’t be surprising if that is the case again on Saturday.
Collingwood won by nine points when these two sides met last August, but the bookies seem to be all-in on the Swans following last week’s nine-point loss to Melbourne at the MCG.
As for the Pies, they moved a step closer to turning things around with a win over North Melbourne, but it is worth noting they still haven’t picked up a win over a top eight side this year.
To make matters worse, the Pies will likely be without Jeremy Howe for the rest of the season – a big blow heading into this week’s game with the Swans boasting one of the most potent forward lines in the league.
Buddy Franklin and Sam Wicks were basically non-factors last week in the loss to the Dees, so this looks a nice bounce-back game not only for the Swans, but also for a couple of their key stars.
