Welcome to today's coverage of Collingwood v Geelong, should be a cracker. (Hopefully).

The Pies are bouncing after their drubbing of hapless Brisbane last week. They need to prove they can do it against the big boys.

Geelong are absolutely flying. As expected their recruits this off-season have revitalised the club. Currently in second looking to push on.

Buckley is still under the Kosh. He could use a big win today, don't really think it's in the works though. Geelong by 23 for me.

Steele Sidebottom plays his 150th game today. Has been a great servant to the club and has been in excellent form this year.

Bounce here shortly. Players taking their positions. Late change for the Cats: Lonergan out, Ruggles in.

Q1 bounce!

Q1 18:22 Pies with the first score: Rushed behind. Even start.

Q1 17:30 Pies looking to bring the ball through the corridor as often as possible here.

Q1 15:28 Geelong should have scored there. Great work by Smith who finds Guthrie who dishes to Hawkins but he misses a soda. Let off.
