Collingwood FC vs GWS Giants

After a tough mid-season period in terms of the draw which saw Collingwood face the likes of Fremantle, Geelong, Sydney and Essendon, the Pies looked set to go on a bit of winning run over the past six weeks as they faced teams placed in the bottom half of the table.
Whilst they have won five of their past seven, the two losses to Port Adelaide and last week, the Gold Coast, have been unexpected and halted their momentum. They have also had punters questioning their credentials for when the finals arrive.
With five regular rounds left after this one Collingwood, who are in seventh spot on the ladder, get the chance to look forward and put the inconsistency of this season behind them.
It’s the first time Collingwood have met GWS and they’ll show no mercy.
GWS, who remain winless this season, got to within four points of the struggling Western Bulldogs three games back but since, have been belted by Sydney and last week Essendon.
It doesn’t get any easier for them here and if Collingwood produce their best, and they should, the line of 86.5 looks within their reach.
