Pies in Prelims

Finals Moments: Prelim Power Relive Collingwood's 44-point win over Port Adelaide in the 2003 Preliminary Final, on this day 14 years ago.

The two biggest games of the AFL season will take place at the Adelaide Oval and MCG respectively this weekend as Adelaide, Geelong, Richmond and Greater Western Sydney fight for a place in the Grand Final.

Preliminary finals are fraught with danger. Lose, and the dream of making the last Saturday in September falls agonisingly short. Win, and a premiership is just four quarters away.

While we won’t be taking part in prelim proceedings this week, now seems like a better time than any to take a look back at some of our biggest outings in the penultimate weekend of the AFL season.

Pendles: When the 19th man matters

Tiger time at the MCG this weekend has Scott Pendlebury remembering some of his biggest games in front of a deafening Magpie Army.

Richmond fans are expected to dominate attendance when the club meets the GWS Giants in a Saturday afternoon Preliminary Final.

What ensues may be a rare case of opposition supporters serving up an atmosphere usually reserved for blockbusters involving the Magpies.

“We’ve always had majority of the crowd as a Collingwood player,” Pendlebury said on Collingwood Media podcast ‘Jock and Journo’.

“That Collingwood chant that goes up… it just overpowers anything else that happens.

“If any other team tries to chant and Collingwood wants to do their chant, Collingwood gets their way.

“To know that you’ve got that backing is huge. It’s like a 19th player.”

LISTEN: Hear Pendlebury speak glowingly of the Magpie Army on Jock and Journo.

'This is watching Swanny all over again'

Scott Pendlebury felt like he was watching Dane Swan when he attended Friday night’s Qualifying Final between Richmond and Geelong.

Swan-reincarnated had the tattoos to match, the burst-away speed and the same devastating ability to leave opponents in his wake.

The man in question? Richmond’s superstar Dustin Martin.

“I thought ‘this is watching Swanny all over again’,” Pendlebury said on Collingwood Media podcast ‘Jock and Journo’.

“The amount of key moments where Dusty made a sloppy bit of play look clean when it hit his hands was phenomenal.”

LISTEN: Tune in to hear Pendlebury's comments on iTunes and Soundcloud.

Martin has been the centre of attention in the football world in 2017, thanks to constant contract talks and being the recipient of numerous league-wide awards.

He continued his outstanding form with 28 touches and seven tackles as the Tigers broke away from the Cats in the...

Goldsack signs on for 2018

Player of the week: Goldsack Watch Tyson Goldsack's best moments from Sunday's game against Fremantle.

It’s hard to imagine a Collingwood team without Tyson Goldsack.

Fortunately, supporters won’t have to contemplate the idea for a while yet.

The 30-year-old, who has performed almost every role football can ask from a player, will continue into his 12th season in 2018 after committing to a one-year contract extension.

“Tyson enjoyed one of his best seasons in 2017,” General Manager of List Management Derek Hine told Collingwood Media.

Mason Cox's future confirmed

Mason Cox will remain a Magpie after signing a three-year contract extension with the club which brought him from the United States to Australia.

The 211cm American will stay at the Holden Centre, where he first began honing his AFL skills as a Category B international rookie in 2014.

Since, the Dallas native has played 20 AFL games – including nine as a key forward and ruckman in 2017.

His signature ensures Collingwood will move into 2018 and beyond with the potent ruck combination of Cox and the recently re-signed Brodie Grundy.

GM of List Management Derek Hine holds a strong belief in the strength of the Magpies’ ruck stocks.

“We’re thrilled that we have two outstanding ruckman in our future,” Hine told Collingwood Media.

“The combination of Brodie and Mason is something that we are all looking forward to seeing develop.”

The duo gave a tantalising glimpse of what’s to come in...
