Preview

Two of the oldest clubs in the game will play each other yet again at the MCG. Neither side has clear bragging rights over the other in recent time.

Essendon are two games outside of the eight, and dropping another would almost end their finals hopes. Collingwood’s season is basically all but over as they sit another further game back.

The battle of the forward lines should be interesting, as both tell a very different story. Collingwood has struggled up front, although Mason Cox managed to bag three majors last week, whereas when the Bombers have got it up there they have had an array of goalscorers.

Tip: Bombers by 18
