Well well well. That wasn’t very good. Collingwood were widely expected to dispose of the Bulldogs but the wouldn’t go quietly. The Pies were down for most of the match, almost snatched it with a burst at the end but in all honesty deserved exactly what they got.
The only shining lights were Travis Cloke with six majors and the ever-excellent Scott Pendlebury. It seems high-top boots might be coming back into fashion – albeit not with the traditional black colouration. Too bad Scott’s mates didn’t back him up on this day. Let’s forget about this one, celebrate a Pies champ and move on.
