ANZAC day. Bright autumn sunshine. MCG. Collingwood and Essendon. Footy at its best.
Essendon started strong and it was looking bleak for the Pies but a string of goals in the second quarter got us well and truly back in the match. From there Dane Swan emerged as Collingwood’s hero on this day. Some may say he’s a scraggly looking human being however his skill cannot be denied. It was a famous victory for the Pies and one which has to be duly celebrated with a portrait of the ANZAC medal winner.
