Welcome to the first match of the AFL preseason for 2014. Tonight, the Geelong Cats will host the Collingwood Magpies at Simonds Stadium, join us for a live blog and scores from 7:10pm AEDT.

Geelong and Collingwood have been two of the best teams going round in recent seasons, and in 2014 both will be looking to the next generation of their footy club to drive them forward, after each let experienced players move on during the offseason.

Geelong:
Like all teams in the preseason, the Cats will look to give their emerging young talent a good run. That being said, Geelong will also be looking to make an impression on a team that will most likely be near them come September.

It will be important for Geelong to shut down Collingwood’s tall forwards and force the Magpies to find other routes to goal.

Collingwood:
The Magpies also have young talent that they want to expose early on in the year. Recruits like Taylor Adams will be looking to cement a place in the Magpies line-up for round one of the regular season.

Collingwood will look to send high long balls into their forward 50 and make the most of their tall timber.

A key for Collingwood will be keeping Tom Hawkins under control; the Geelong big man was hampered by injury last season, but his back problems look to be in the past – he will be looking to show he’s ready for a big 2014.

X-Factor:
The X-Factor for this game is Scott Pendleberry. The classy midfielder was given the captaincy a couple of weeks ago and will look to prove that he has the quality to go with the title.

Prediction:
Geelong will be too powerful at home and with Collingwood missing midfield star Dane Swan I don’t think they will get up.
