Collingwood v Sydney

Collingwood versus Sydney at the MCG on Friday, March 15, at 7.40pm AEDT.

Previous encounter: In Round 8 of 2023, Collingwood triumphed over Sydney with a score of 11.11 (77) to 6.12 (48).

Analysis:

Collingwood commenced their title defense with a stumble against Greater Western Sydney, revealing concerns across all facets of play. The Magpies aim to swiftly dispel any notions of a premiership hangover and seek to reintegrate Jeremy Howe into their lineup to bolster a defense that conceded 18 goals.

Sydney struggled to put away Melbourne until a final-quarter surge hinted at their potential to contend this season. Facing the wounded reigning champions presents a formidable challenge, yet another victory would position the Swans favorably, particularly considering their forthcoming favorable fixtures leading up to the fifth round bye.

Key Players:

Mason Cox, Collingwood’s forward-ruck, made a pre-game impact against the Giants but faltered during the match, managing only five disposals and failing to score. With competition in the ruck from Darcy Cameron, Cox must assert himself against Sydney to secure his place in the lineup.

Isaac Heeney, renowned for his prowess as a forward and midfielder, showcased his versatility against Melbourne, amassing 26 disposals and a career-high 13 clearances. With key midfielders sidelined, Heeney is poised to continue his impactful on-ball contributions against Collingwood, alongside fellow midfielders.
