12.7 (79)


Two of the oldest rivals in AFL history will do battle once again this weekend. The upcoming match-up is made even more special, because it is 125 years since the Pies joined the VFL/AFL.

Out of the 253 games they have played against each other, Collingwood have won 123, Carlton 126, and there have been four draws.

The Blues shocked everyone by beating Sydney last weekend. Their recent record would suggest that they may struggle this week, however, coming up against the old rival should provide an extra spark.

Collingwood managed to silence their critics for the week, however, if they dropped this game they would be as loud as ever.

The Pies midfield should be too strong for Carlton. The likes of Pendlebury, Treloar, Wells, and Adams should have far too much class for their opposition.
