If one had said in March that a win over GWS would be up there with the most gratifying of the season most Collingwood fans would’ve scoffed but voila, there you have it. With half of the best 22 out with injury and down to a single rotation the Pies found something deep within and fought back for a gutsy win.
Collingwood probably won’t beat the Hawks next week. We probably won’t play finals. But watching the game last night gave a special kind of enjoyment. The type of pleasure a fan gets during the cut and thrust of a match when the win, THAT particular win is all that matters. Well played to all those in the black and white last night and to one amply-shouldered individual in particular. Great game Josh.
