Collingwood have been okay the past month or so and challenged a lot of sides but it’s clear they can’t sustain it for four quarters.

They need two big forwards to help out Darcy Moore.

Don’t know who is going to be coaching next year, but I assume it won’t be Bucks.

Whoever it is, (Roosy) will be on the lookout for a key forward.

They missed Sam Reid but they might want to start looking at someone like him as they certainly need it.

Melbourne are on the brink of finals footy for the first time since whenever.

They’ll win because they play like a finals team and deserve to be there.

Jesse Hogan has been sensational and they have turned the corner in my humble opinion.

Three weeks ago they were woeful against GWS, but that’s now in the past and they’re heading to September with some decent form.


The Verdict

Melbourne to win comfortably.

Would be nice for something to happen to Bucks before the game, given we’re all predicting this will be his last game for the Pies.
