Highly unlikely it will rain. Showers are not the deluge Essendon experienced against Carlton.
Carlton played well because their short kicking game suited the conditions. Not sure short kicking is Collingwoods go anyway?
What does concern is the fact Collingwood have heaps of I50 entries + Wells is the master at delivering quality passes into the F50. If Collingwood start converting all those chances Essendon are in trouble.
Mind you, they've been ordinary this year and were lucky to win against the Swans. Will 1 player make that much of a difference?
