Pies to host Cats in round one

Top 5: Great moments vs the Cats It might be a long wait until we start our 2019 campaign against Geelong, but it's never too soon to revel in our great rivalry against the boys from Kardinia Park.

Collingwood will kick off its 2019 home and away campaign by hosting Geelong in a huge Friday night game at the MCG.

The round one fixture was revealed over the weekend, with the Magpies' clash with the Cats among the key talking points.
