COLLINGWOOD has registered a 30-point win over Richmond in the AAMI Community Series.

Compounding the highly inaccurate Tigers' woes was a quad injury to the bullocking Jack Graham, suffered in the final 30 seconds as chaos unfolded around him.

The game ended in somewhat farcical conditions, a mini-melee kicking off between Mason Cox and Marlion Pickett (with Samson Ryan taking over) as Billy Frampton had a set-shot from outside 50.

With the mass of players sucked into the push-and-shove, Frampton's long bomb harmlessly bounced through an empty goal-square, to round out the 10.16 (76) to 5.16 (46) result.


Jordan De Goey and Nick Daicos (on set, limited minutes) were a class above, controlling the game when the match was in the balance earlier in the night.

The Pies hit their straps late in the second term, kicking 3.5 to 0.3, including a commanding bomb goal from 55m, launched by De Goey.

Norm Smith medallist Bobby Hill needed to push up high to find his first touch, coming halfway through the second quarter. 20 seconds later, he capitalised on a forward stoppage to kick truly.

It took a 50m penalty and first (unofficial) goal from key back Tylar Young for Richmond to record its third major, in the third term, but the Pies cut through the defence with ease, Mason Cox's height proving to be an issue.

Pat Lipinski – playing a combination of forward and wing – was busy throughout the game, while Isaac Quaynor provided plenty of creativity off half-back.

Premiership Pie Billy Frampton was back in his customary defensive role after playing a defensive forward role on Harris Andrews in the premiership decider.

The two clubs were playing for their inaugural charity shield, with all proceeds from the match going to Foodbank Victoria.
