There are not too many times you could call a come from behind win ‘dominant’, but the Cats fourth quarter surge to defeat the Saints by 38 points was every bit the dominating performance.
The Magpies were not disgraced against the Bombers on ANZAC Day but questions remain over their accuracy and effectiveness inside 50.
Collingwood are the second lowest scoring team in the competition with just 52 goals this season, yet they have the 5th most inside 50’s. Coupled with the worst goal accuracy percentage in the AFL (39.4%) and averaging 14.6 behinds a match. the Magpies need to start converting their chances.
Final Say: Whilst Collingwood’s coaching dramas have played out in the media during the week, it isn’t translating to a lack of effort on the field. The Magpies are averaging the third highest tackle rate in the competition behind the Western Bulldogs and Sydney. The Cats have earnt their reputation this season as a team that runs out a game, and with this in mind they will defeat the Magpies in a close match.
