Cam Hooke’s Collingwood Life – Round 8 review

True Believers,

Well that was fun.  I didn’t see it.  Anyone who watched it, we’d love to hear your comments?

 

Reports at http://www.afl.com.au/match-centre/2016/8/bl-v-coll and http://www.theage.com.au/afl/afl-match-report/collingwood-v-brisbane-magpies-get-big-win-over-lions-20160514-govco5.html.

 

A good result; was this because of our performance or due to theirs?  Like always, probably a bit of both.  From the Match Report: “The Magpies weren’t always clean, but they were committed and had a clear game-plan the hosts simply refused to match.”  Love it – addresses a couple of key points I have been harping on about.

 

‘Experts’ views – http://www.theage.com.au/afl/expert-tipsters?  18 picked Brisbane (including Connolly and Baum); 6 picked us. The margins were pathetic – Best pick I’ve seen: me, margin – 69 points.  Got Treloar and Cox pretty right too; pity about Trav.

Next. A serious opportunity – Geelong – Saturday, 21 May 2016; bounce: 1.45pm. At the G.  I’m going.  Comments later in the week.

 

Keep the faith.  Go Pies.
