COLLINGWOOD coach Nathan Buckley will be armed with the game’s top-ranked midfield in his make-or-break 2017 season, according to Champion Data.
I'm one of the few looney's that doesn't have the dogs making the finals - but both the saints and the dees are in my 8.
Either way I'm stoked footy's back and all the pre season posturing and musings can be justified or set alight come Monday.
If Weitering plays back I would argue the blues have the best defender - I can't get my head around the love for Rance, an opportunist that goes 3rd man up and leaves his direct opponent for minutes at a time...
*puts on flame retardant clothing*
I'm very bullish on Weitering, and Collins of the Doggies. I think those 2 guys have the potential to be AA in future. Great pickups by both clubs.
It will be interesting to see what structure the Tigers go with up forward without Vickery clogging space up for Riewoldt, Casboult or SOSOS might surprise and end up being more dominant.
As a neutral, always excited about this game - real footy starts and these 2 usually dish up close contests (my memory is pretty hazy on the accuracy of that remark)
Nick Riewoldt will be right up there in his final season too I suspect
