AFL Round 21 – Collingwood Vs Sydney

Yeehah, My first trip to the Dome. I flew in Saturday Arvo and after a Few Beers at the Locker Room we headed up to the Cheap seats. What a start, 8 goals in the first quarter. The game was in the bag by half-time. both Sydney’s goals came from soft free-kicks so they were certainly playing below par.

Anyway, we went from strength to strength piling on the presseure and the goals. Leon kicks another contender… It was a pity we tapered off a bit in the last quarter allowing the margin back to under 50 points…
