All was in readiness for a classic encounter on Friday night as Dale Thomas stepped out in navy blue against his former team.
Unfortunately a classic it was not – unless you happen to be a Collingwood fan. The Pies dominated for three quarters before easy off in the last. A very youthful defensive unit where excellent and the big Witts threw his 208cm around with guile that belied his tender age. He is an almighty size and that was enough to inspire his depict at my hands.
