Collingwood went down to Brisbane 11.6 (72) to 14.13 (97).

After a shaky start to the first term, Pies were able to fight back and narrow the margin to 14 points.

Madgen got involved early in his first match back since his shoulder injury snagging a beauty. 

One of our debutants, Vivian Blackmore-Moore was on the board and followed it up with another goal not long after.

AFL listed debutant Charlie Dean also made a solid debut with 14 disposals and 5 tackles.

The second quarter saw the Pies kick four, equalling the Lions for the quarter.

Josh Carmichael, Collingwood’s mid-season draftee, was extremely influential and was awarded the player of the match.

With 24 disposals, 8 marks and 5 clearances, he was solid across the ground.

Brisbane managed to get away in the third quarter as the Pies struggled to score.

Winning the last quarter by two goals, the late charge was not enough.

There were still many positives to take from the game as the Pies fought all day.

Finn Macrae and Callum Brown were also among the major ball getters with 22 and 19 disposals respectively.

Aiden Begg lead the tackle count with 10 tackles, providing pressure and intensity whilst also playing in the ruck.

Collingwood have dropped out of the eight and will be hungry for a win next week against the Tigers.

The match against Richmond will be across the road at the Swinburne Centre at 11:05am, Sunday 3 July.
