1. We’re back home
After trips up the road (to Carlton) and across the country (to Perth), we’re finally playing on our home turf.

Our AFLW Magpies enjoyed playing at the Holden Centre last season, recording their first win in round six. For those looking for omens, it was against the Giants.

2. See Molloy up close
Chloe Molloy is one of the sensations of the new AFL Women’s season.

The teenager starred on debut against Carlton, and backed it up with a gutsy performance against Fremantle in the west on Saturday night.

Pies fans will quickly love watching Molloy’s ability to read the play, chase down opponents and stay cool under pressure.

3. Take your chances
For all Melbourne-based Collingwood fans, this is a great chance to see your AFLW Magpies up close before they get back on the road.

The next three weeks takes the team to Alice Springs, Moe and Brisbane, making Sunday’s match the last chance to see the Pies in their home town until the final round of the season.

4. An evening with Eva
Alicia Eva was a vice-captain and runner up in the best-and-fairest during Collingwood’s inaugural AFL Women’s campaign.

During the off-season, she made the switch to Greater Western Sydney.

Nine months later, she will return to her old home ground to face off with her one-time Collingwood teammates.

5. Rallying call
Big crowds have been a feature of the opening fortnight of Collingwood’s AFL Women’s season.

More than 19,000 turned out to watch the Magpies take on the Blues in the opening round, and a further 41,000 were there to welcome in the new Optus Stadium against Fremantle last Saturday.

Another large crowd would make a mighty difference as the Pies seek to take down the Giants and record their first win of the season.
