My latest Collingwood recap cartoon has just been posted up on the Collingwood website at http://www.collingwoodfc.com.au/the%20collingwood%20cartoon/tabid/19121/default.aspx
and here’s my little take on the game 🙂
Round 6 (WIN Coll 98 – WB 77):
The weekend’s matches saw some surprisingly intriguing battles and a fair of serious injuries to boot. Fortunately for our Pies we were able to come away from our Friday night clash with the Bulldogs with a gritty 21-point win.
Heath Shaw and Ben Reid were both welcome inclusions to the side but all magpies’ hearts were warmed by the stellar midfield play of Dayne Beams and Steele Sidebottom. Luke Ball’s season-ending knee injury saw him snuggled up next to Dennis Cometti in the commentary box and not under the packs where he ought to be. Beams in particular took up the slack superbly and was instrumental in the win – seems like tatts and sleek football skills go together down at Collingwood.
It was certainly not a comfortable win but a good result nonetheless. I just hope there weren’t to many surly dogs out there on Saturday morning making life tough for their Collingwood supporting owners. Could be some frosty walks taken this week in an increasingly frosty Melbourne. Let’s hope our winning form continues up the warmer climes of Brisbane and that the boys can keep this nice little run rolling along.
