Preview

The epic ANZAC Day clash is set for another installment. Fans are hoping this year’s game is more exciting than the match-up in 2016.

Both Essendon and Collingwood are delicately poised heading into round five. The Bombers are an even 2-2, while the Pies sit 1-3. Both sides will look to make a push for a top eight spot, before their bye round.

The midfield battle is mouth-watering, with names like Pendelbury, Heppell, Treloar, and Merrett all set to do battle. Who wins the battle in the centre could very well decide the outcome of the game.

Keep an eye on David Zaharakis. The Essendon star has a love for the ANZAC Day stage, having kicked the winning goal in 2009, and winning the ANZAC Day medal in 2013.
