The footy gods have delivered a mouth-watering clash on Sunday between rivals Essendon and Collingwood at the ‘G.

The season is over for the Pies, but they’ll relish the chance at spoiling Essendon’s finals hopes whilst simultaneously avenging their ANZAC Day belting back in April.

If Essendon win they’re guaranteed to finish eighth thanks to West Coast’s loss last week, but they could go as high as seventh if the Blues upset the Giants.

Either way, there’s plenty for Bomber fans to be excited about, but given the recent history of this club, a win is far from a guarantee – particularly against a feisty Collingwood outfit.

The Pies were very flat last week against the Lions in their 85-point loss, but you never really know what you’re going to get from them week-to-week.


Following a couple of tough away trips to Tassie and Brisbane, getting back to Melbourne could help Collingwood end the season on something of a high-note with an eye towards bigger things next year.
