West Coast vs Collingwood
MCG, 2:30 pm Saturday, September 29
Team news: Both sides have gone in as named, with Collingwood leaving out both Darcy Moore and Ben Reid, who have returned to full fitness.
Injury watch: Questions were surrounding the fitness of Luke Shuey and Jeremey McGovern this week, but the Eagles have confirmed that they are 100% ready to go for Saturday.
Prediction: West Coast are the powerhouse team of the two and even though they beat the Pies comfortably at the ‘G not that long ago, Collingwood are the story of the year and that has been the trend with the Premiership teams of the last couple of years. Pies fans will pack the MCG and they will be mighty loud and I think that will get them over the line.
Collingwood by 19 points

Talk about encapsulating the heart 'n soul in a single photo. We see 22 on the field but there's so much more to it behind the scenes. All 45 players have helped drive us this far + all 45 will play a key role in the week to come #FOREVER pic.twitter.com/BF9GE8PtuJ
