AFL round seven LIVE: Geelong v Collingwood


Adam Treloar has continued his good form; he has 19 disposals tonight, four tackles and five clearances.

Patrick Dangerfield has lifted in the second term; he has 16 touches.

Tom Phillips (14), Taylor Adams (13), Chris Mayne (13) and Scott Pendlebury (13) round out the top six players on the ground. Adams has four clearances, Mayne and Pendlebury have two each.

In the team stats, Collingwood has handballed 91 times to Geelong’s 54, and their cleanliness resembles a dry weather game.

The clearance count is no longer that one-sided; Pies lead 22-18, while contested possessions are 76-68 in the Pies’ favour.

The three-goal lead gives Collingwood a huge advantage but Geelong is one team that can kick goals quickly – we saw that against Carlton when they nearly came back and won from a large deficit.
