A strange clash, this one, with no huge carrot dangling in front of either club. 

Collingwood, of course, are destined to finish in the bottom four or five while Brisbane are almost certain to finish fifth or sixth, which has already locked in a home (Covid pending) elimination final. The only way they can leapfrog Port Adelaide in fourth is if they win their remaining two games and the Power lose both of theirs, which would appear unlikely.

However Chris Fagan will be desperate to build on the momentum of their big win over Freo in Round 21. The Lions, who have finished second in both of the last two AFL seasons, have shown lacklustre form in the back half of 2021, and need to begin firing if they’re any chance of premiership success. Some say they’re already out of the race — they need to prove why that’s not the case.

Verdict

The first duel between these two sides was close so we expect Collingwood to cover the line.
