AFL Round 14 – Sydney Vs Collingwood

Woohooo Collingwood goes up again… Seems like we win the TV games and lose the other ones. This makes it much better for me anyway… Collingwood sure seem to have the wood on the Swannies, making it four from the last four meetings. Makes it tough for Colleen because she is a Sydney supporter (of sorts)… Glad to see that our woeful accuracy didn’t end up costing us in the long run…
