the first installment of my weekly take on the mighty Collingwood has just gone up on the Collingwood website (www.colingwoodfc.com.au). This calls for a celebration in the form of a new section for my own little site. I’ve just made ‘Collingwood Cartoons’ where I will post all my cartoons throughout the season. I hope it’s one to remember and that we laugh all the way to another premiership.
here are the two cartoons I did for round 4, plus a little wordy accompaniment for good measure. Stay tuned for more to come 🙂
It was a great win on the weekend, one that surely warmed the hearts of all Pies supporters. Harry O galloped unhindered from the back 50, Swanny was back to his best, Pendles was silky and Trav proved a dominant force up front. In fact, all the boys showed the kind of ferocious intensity and desire to win the tough ball that makes fans smile. Now the focus shifts to recovery and David Buttifant and his band of merry physios must swing into action to get us up for Wednesday. We know that the science of recovery in AFL clubs is getting more and more precise. Things like training loads, diet and even sleep are all forensically monitored and optimised. Let’s just hope the players get the right amount of ice baths to be fit and raring to go on ANZAC Day.
Our mighty Pies got off to a flying start against Port Adelaide on a beautiful Saturday afternoon in Melbourne. A big first quarter set us up for the rest of the match and it was driven in large part by Harry O’s dashing run from the backline. For reasons unknown to everyone except Mathew Primus and the Port coaching staff, Harry was allowed to roam free for large portions of the game. He revelled in this ‘lone ranger’ role, repeatedly gathered the Sherrin, burst free and fed it to big Trav, our resident beast up front. The man is a contested marking machine and seemingly gobbled up everything sent his way by a galloping Harry O and friends. Time now to get into those ice baths ready to saddle up for another big win come ANZAC Day. Go Pies!
