The return of Lachie Sullivan will bolster Collingwood’s VFL side as they travel down to Frankston for the second year in a row for an important Round 15 match-up.

Joining him in returning to Sunday’s team is ruckman Liam Purcell who will be in for his eighth game of 2024, and exciting small forward Harry Mahoney who will line for his fifth game in Pies colours.

Yu Yu Ashwin and the injured Jakob Ryan will miss this week after playing against the Bombers last Saturday, as will Ned Long who has been elevated to the senior team.

With a midfield of Sullivan, Jack Bytel, and Finlay Macrae all primed to distribute the ball, and exciting forwards Reef McInnes, Ash Johnson and Josh Eyre all coming off the back of two-goal games last week, the Pies will come into the clash with a strong presence on the park.

The match kicks off at 1:05pm in Frankston on Sunday, with tickets just $5 for Collingwood members.
