AFL Round 15 – Collingwood Vs Adelaide

Another good win for the boys. We were 28 Points down in the 2nd Quarter and we came back to get a good win.I didn’t get to see it on TV (why would we, some repeat kids movie is so much more interesting…) but i coaght the last half of the Game from the AFL Website  Game Day coverage. A least it showed the laitny of goals that rained down from the Collingwoods lads. Only half a game out of the final 8 now..
