AFL Live Collingwood Magpies vs GWS Giants Stream AFL Football 2015 Online, AFL Round 11 Match will be kick off at Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), Melbourne, Victoria, Australia Sunday 14 June 2015 online, 13.10pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
These two sides are separated on the ladder by only percentage and both have to be considered serious finals chances after the first ten rounds. Collingwood fought off a gritty Melbourne side on Queen’s Birthday whilst the Giants defeated a determined Brisbane last weekend.
The Giants add Nick Haynes to the starting 18 whilst Zac Williams and Andrew Phillips join the extended bench. Expect Aiden Corr to miss out. They are without big men Jon Patton and Adam Tomlinson from their best 22. The Pies have added Taylor Adams, Jarrod Witts and Brayden Maynard to their extended squad. They are missing Ben Reid, Levi Greenwood and Brent Macaffer (season) from their ideal line-up.
The Pies are fourth on the ladder with a 7-3 record. They rank third for scoring and sixth for least amount of points conceded this season. They have a 0-2 head-to-head and ATL record against top eight teams this year. The Giants are in fifth with the same win/loss record. GWS rank fifth in points scored and ninth for least amount of points conceded this season. They are 2-2 (3-1 against the line) vs top eight teams in 2015.
The Magpies are 3-0 (1-2 against the line) vs the Giants. The Magpies are 33-19 at the MCG under Nathan Buckley but only 21-31 against the line in those games. GWS is 6-10 (8-8 against the line) when on the road in 2014-15. They’re 1-6 (4-3 against the line) at the home of football. Only one of their three match-ups have totalled over 178.5 points. Dane Swan averages 30 disposals and a goal per game against GWS. Collingwood is 1-2 both head-to-head and against the line when on a three game winning streak in the past two seasons.
The winner of this one can legitimately call themselves a finals contender. GWS has the better form-lines this season and am willing to put down their loss to Bulldogs as an anomaly and hence like them today. Melbourne’s midfield really tested Collingwood on Monday and GWS has the weapons to really exploit the Magpies in that area. Plus their forward line has a few more weapons then Melbourne and there is no way that Travis Cloke will kick seven straight in a game for the rest of his career, let alone in consecutive weeks.
