Round 8 - Werribee vs Collingwood (Away)

13 May 2024

After a week off with the bye, Werribee now shifts its focus to Collingwood for the Round 8 clash.

It will be Werribee’s first trip back to Victoria Park since 2018 a day when the Pies came out on top. Our most recent clash though was a 35-point win against a Collingwood side which featured premiership heroes Mason Cox, Jack Ginnivan and Will Hoskin-Elliott.

Following the bye in Round 7 we will enter the clash sixth on the ladder fresh from the round 6 32-point win over Carlton at Avalon Airport Oval.

Collingwood is sitting 15th on the ladder and will be looking to bounce back after the Northern Bullants pulled off a comeback win to defeat them by 7 points last round.

The match will be streamed, live and free, on afl.com.au and the AFL Live Official App for Werribee fans at home, with the first bounce at 11:05AM AEDT.
