Getting a score on the board: How Magpies can make the most of Grundy

If you’ve ever played as a forward, you generally have a certain view of ruckmen.

They’re obviously the biggest player on the ground, often pretty aggressive and seemingly always standing in the space in front of you.

So, it should perhaps come as no surprise that for members of the forward fraternity, there’s an automatic dislike for many of the game’s big men.

Still, it was impossible not to have a level of admiration for some of them during my time.

The medical subs

No late changes for either the Magpies or Eagles.

Jamaine Jones is the medical sub for the Eagles while Brayden Sier is the medical sub for the Magpies.

Five questions: Can the Magpies pull off another Optus Stadium miracle?

The Magpies head to Perth to play West Coast at a packed Optus Stadium with one win for 2021, and their backs well and truly against the wall.

It would take a miracle for Collingwood to win, but this club – as far back as that 2002 qualifying against Port Adelaide – have made a habit of winning against the odds.
