The Collingwood Magpies begin life under new coach Robert Harvey against the Fremantle Dockers at Marvel Stadium. Stay up to date with the action on The Roar with live scores from 1:45pm (AEST).
There’s no doubt it’s been a tough season for Collingwood in 2021, but they actually come into today’s game on the back of a two-game winning streak. They were very impressive against the ladder-leading Demons in Nathan Buckley’s last game in charge and have a real opportunity to build something meaningful in the latter portion of the season.
Fremantle are technically in striking distance of a finals spot, but their poor percentage means they’re, in essence, another four points behind than the ladder indicates. Still, they’ll be confident of securing just their second win away from home in 2021 with the aid of several returning stars.
The Dockers have knocked off the Magpies in both of their two most recent encounters, but they’ve been close. Last year’s result was a 12-point win in Freo’s favour, while in 2019 it was just four points. Freo have actually won three of four meetings between these sides at Docklands Stadium.
