Australian Football League (AFL) Live Collingwood Magpies vs Western Bulldogs match will be kick off at Etihad Stadium, Melbourne, Sunday 15 june 2014 online, 15:20 AEDT and its broadcast on Fox Footy.
After a narrow win over Carlton, expect Chris Scott to stick fat with his boys. If he elected to make some changes then Taylor Hunt, Jackson Thurlow and Darcy Lang are pushing for a spot whilst Allen Christensen might have to play another game in the VFL. For the Saints, David Armitage should return after starring for Sandringham whilst defenders Jimmy Webster and James Gwilt are also a chance.
The Bulldogs desperately need a big key forward to put some consistent AFL games together. Coach Brendan McCartney will surely bring one in this week with Liam Jones, Ayce Cordy, Tom Campbell and Jack Redpath putting their hand up in the VFL. Fellow goal-kickers Lachie Hunter and Jake Stringer might also need to be recalled to give the Dogs more firepower. The Pies might not change a winning formula after their hard-fought win over Melbourne on Queen’s Birthday. Jesse White could return after being a late withdrawal with Taylor Adams, Ben Reid and Tim Broomhead likely to spend another week in the VFL. Ben Reid is also knocking on the door.
The Pies never got out of first gear in round 12 last year as they cruised to a 34-point win over the Dogs. The Magpies kicked 11 goals to two in the first half to effectively seal the win. Although the Dogs showed good fight in the second half to outscore them 48-29. Dane Swan was best afield with 38 touches although Pendlebury wasn’t far behind with 35. Travis Cloke kicked five goals too. For the Dogs Matthew Boyd and Ryan Griffen had 32-disposals each.
