Coming off a comprehensive victory over the old enemy – one of them at least – the Pies travelled to Sydney for another formidable assignment. Things weren’t looking good half way through the first as it seemed Sydney might run away with it. However through hard, diligent work Collingwood kicked a couple and got back in the contest. From there, our gut running and manic pressure ensured we chalked up a second good win on the trot.
It goes without saying now that Pendles, Swanny and Beams were immense. It’s very pleasing though to say that third-gamer Brody Grundy dominated his opponents. The young man has come in and made a real impact in the absence of Jolly. He covers the ground superbly and with his samurai hair-do, will surely become a fan favourite. Well played Brody.
