This Saturday will mark a historic day for Collingwood as its AFLW side takes to the field for its first finals match.

The Magpies will meet North Melbourne for the first time this year.   

How have the Pies performed to date?

The Pies’ impressive 29-point victory over Brisbane on Saturday sees them remain in third position of Conference B.

With no crowd present, it was tough conditions for all players.

But the Pies remained composed smashing the Lions at contested footy (93-74) before getting their first interstate win this season.

Brit Bonnici was a workhorse in the midfield racking up a game-high 26 disposals that saw her awarded the maximum 10 coaches votes.

Alongside her was vice-captain, Brianna Davey who was outstanding with 22 disposals.

How have the Kangaroos been tracking?

The Kangaroos finished the revised season undefeated on top of conference A.

The Roos most recently took down Geelong by 46 points in round six.  

Former Pie, Jasmine Garner was again dominant in front of goals piling three majors on the board and currently leads the AFLPA coaches votes. 

What does this week’s game mean?

Finishing the revised season in fourth position of Conference B, the Pies are one of eight teams to make the final series.

A win would see the Magpies progress through to the first preliminary final where they’d meet the winner of Carlton and Brisbane, while a loss will put an end to the Pies’ 2020 campaign.

Collingwood’s team for Saturday’s game will be released on Friday evening.
