Craig McRae has confirmed the starting 22 for Sunday's Round 11 clash against North Melbourne at Marvel Stadium. 

Pending no late changes, Will Hoskin-Elliott will start as the substitute.

Sunday’s clash promises to be a wonderful celebration, with Collingwood’s home Sir Doug Nicholls Round also playing host to Steele Sidebottom’s 300th AFL match, and Mason Cox’s 100th AFL match. 

Remarkably, Sidebottom debuted against North Melbourne in Round 7, 2009. He also celebrated his 50th and 250th game milestones against the Kangaroos. 

Sidebottom is set the become the fourth Collingwood player to reach 300 games, joining Gordon Coventry (306), Tony Shaw (313), and Scott Pendlebury (367*). 

Speaking earlier in the week, Sidebottom said: 

“There’s been a lot of people along the way that have helped me get in the position that I’m in,” Sidebottom said.

“I hope they can get some enjoyment out of it just as much as I have throughout my whole career.”


Sunday will also see Mason Cox become the first American to reach 100 AFL games.

Cox, who debuted on ANZAC Day on 2016, will be joined by family and friends at Marvel Stadium on Sunday afternoon. 

Sunday’s match will see Collingwood once again wear a special guernsey as part of Sir Doug Nicholls Round, designed by Djab Wurrong and Kirrae Wurrong artist Tarni Jarvis.

The guernsey tells the story of the many individuals and groups that make up the Collingwood Football Club.

The three emergencies will be Finlay Macrae, Reef McInnes, and Harvey Harrison.
