Collingwood v Melbourne at the G.

I you can’t be there, warm the set and cool the tinnies!

Well, if we’re doing that, then don’t forget to go and see the Power get back on the winner’s list against the Dockers in Adelaide on Saturday night.

Or maybe we can get back on track and promote CANBERRA events?

(Besides, any game involving the Demons is a non-event at the moment!)
