Sydney Swans vs Collingwood Tips


Sydney and Collingwood go head to head at the SCG. The Swans were great in defeat last week to Melbourne Demons who are the only unbeaten side in the competition, and beat Geelong the week prior so the form around them is very good.

Collingwood beat North Melbourne last week, but it was a very unconvincing victory. The Pies are not travelling well this season and this one is the Swans' to lose.

  • Sydney Swans have won 6 of their last 7 day matches against Collingwood.
  • Sydney Swans have won 4 of their last 5 matches at the SCG by 1-39 points.
  • Colingwood have only won two matches for the season.

Head to Head


The last 10 head to heads have been shared, but Collingwood have won the last two including taking out their latest clash by nine points at the Gabba last year.

The last time they met at the SCG, Collingwood came away seven point winners.

Sydney Swans Form


Sydney were the form side of the competiton for the first four rounds with wins over both Brisbane Lions and Richmond Tigers.

Subsequently, they have lost three of their last four matches to GWS Giants (who have struck some gold form), Gold Coast Suns away and Melbourne Demons, who are the only unbeaten side in the competition.

Facing Collingwood is no easy task, especially when the Pies have won on the last two occassions. But Sydney are playing well enough to capitalise on the misfiring Magpies.

Collingwood Form


Collingwood simply had to win last week, playing the winless North Melbourne who have barely had a sniff at a match this season.

They got the job done in the first half of the match, but lost the final two quarters in a 94-76 win which was never an easy watch for Pies fans.

The Pies now travel interstate to the SCG and face another difficult afternoon following a 2-6 start to the season.

Collingwood Team News


Taylor Adams and Jamie Elliot are both around a month away from returning to the side, while Jeremy Howe will not be seen again until the final round of the season.

Jordan Roughhead and Nathan Murphy have both been ruled out due to concussion.

The only in is rookie Tom Wilson for his AFL debut.
