Collingwood and Essendon is normally a fantastic Anzac Day game that we all love because of the occasion.

The way these two played last week they must’ve been looking ahead to this game.

So disappointing with what was on the line.

Finals chances now out the window for both (for mine), so they now need to look at doing something to restore some pride.

Essendon skipper Dyson Heppell basically said they gave up in the last quarter and that he expected more from everyone.

Collingwood don’t say too much because the headlines are all about Bucks and whether he will or won’t get the sack.

He will and he should. Six years of no finals would not cut it at any high-profile club.


The Verdict 

Essendon will bounce back purely and simply because they have the talent across the park.

The Pies leave it to a few and not enough contribute.
