Another twilight fixture for the Pies brought perhaps our best performance of the season thus far. It was obvious within the first five minutes that Collingwood had come to play and Essondon were way off the boil. The Dons could be forgiven for wandering minds due Friday’s interim ASADA report but they were nevertheless comprehensively outplayed throughout the cold rainy evening by Collingwood.
Alas rain struck again early Tuesday morning and this time thwarted a good result. The Australian cricketers were surely on their way to an equally dominant victory at the Pies but were denied by the elements. As Ben Cousin’s stomach tattoo would attest, such is life. Let’s all hope the heavens open again on Saturday night at ANZ stadium and that the black and white army can celebrate another virtuoso performance from the team.
