Coming off round 3:
Collingwood has managed to maintain its unbeaten start to the season after a 17-point win over Richmond last Sunday.
The Pies are now one of only four teams who remain undefeated in the season so far.
The round three win came down to the Pies’ clean ball movement with Brittany Bonnici, Brianna Davey and Jaimee Lambert leading the way through the midfield.
Irish cross-coder, Aishling Sheridan was all class up forward, while the backline continued its strong form with the combination of Stacey Livingstone, Ruby Schleicher and Lauren Butler.
A key focus for the Pies in round four will be to remain consistent throughout the entire four quarters.
The Pies will be gearing up for their toughest challenge yet when they come face to face with North Melbourne on Saturday.
The two sides last met back in a trial game during the pre-season where the Pies managed to walk away 12-point victors.
But the Kangaroos have continued their dominant form from last season claiming two wins (Geelong and St Kilda) but most recently they came off a tough nine-point loss to Melbourne in round three.
Saturday’s game will also mark the first occasion former North head coach Scott Gowans will face his old side.
Pies to look out for:
Brittany Bonnici has been an absolute force through the midfield in the season so far. She comes off a massive 31 disposal game in round three - the fourth most disposals in a game throughout AFLW history.
Ruby Schleicher has continued her strong start to the season with another damaging game off half-back last Sunday.
The efforts of Ruby Schleicher were again recognised as she received her third-straight week of votes (17 disposals).
Saturday night’s match will also mark Collingwood foundation skipper, Steph Chiocci’s 30th AFLW game.
