Well if Collingwood send that side out on saturday it will be one hell of a game. Id probably think the Pies would start favourite....Big Rocca could have a day out with his long kicking at Port. Maybe not as big as the day his brother kicked 10 against Sandy though.

Alot of scoring options for both sides. Could come down to who has the better backline.
Apart from Shannon Watt the Roosters whole backline is VFL listed players who have been together for a number of years. This could be the key, but this could also be there biggest test with ball likely to be down in there backline quite abit more than they would be used too. Can they stand up under the pressure????

Gotta be honest Rooster, It is a fair Collingwood side & yes I do have some concerns.
As I have said many times in the past all the Roosters want is a level playing field & that is certainly not the case at the minute.
Not making excuses but the rules that make up this comp are a dogs breakfast.
Is there anybody that agrees with me.?

We might be from the bush. but we ain't green

I've been thinking about the rules and these are the changes I think should be made to have a more level playing field
- Teams must field a seniors and reserves side
- 12/10 in force all year in all games
- To play in the finals AFL players must play 10 games in the regular season. Doesn't matter if the AFL club is in the finals or not

If the VFL insists on having the Grand Final on a Friday night at Docklands (not my preference) the reserves grand final and both preliminary finals are played as a triple header on the Saturday before the Grand Final.
