We saw the Magpies of old last week against Brisbane, building defensive pressure and forcing the Lions into mistakes, something they simply did not do in their opening three games of the 2024 season. Nick Daicos also returned to his best with 30 touches and was involved all over the park from half-back. 

The Pies come up against one of their oldest rivals Hawthorn who have run into some injury trouble with key men Luke Bruest and Mitch Lewis out this week. The Hawks had already been inefficient inside 50 this season and it is only going to get worse this week with their injury list in mind and also the rejuvenated defensive pressure of the Magpies.

Collingwood can get their revenge for last year’s loss to the Hawks and will get their first ‘Big Win’ of the season, beating the Hawks by 40+ and getting their biggest win against Hawthorn since round 15, 2011.

After his best game of the season against Brisbane , Nick Daicos will back it up again against the Hawks and will be heavily involved again with over 30 disposals. The ball will be coming inside 50 fast and thick for the Pies and Jamie Elliot will capitalise with 3+ goals in the match. 

  • Hawthorn have a goal efficiency of 16%, third-worst in the AFL.
  • Collingwood made 85 tackles last game, 22 more than than season average.
  • Nick Daicos averages 30.8 disposals per game in 2024.
  • Jamie Elliot has kicked 3+ goals in his past 2 games.

Head to Head 

The Hawthorn v Collingwood rivalry is arguably the best in the game and it does not matter what form a team is in the matchup is always a battle. 

No better example is the 105-73 win by the Hawks in round 21 last season that almost cost Collingwood the Minor Premiership. 

Hawthorn have gotten the better of Collingwood in the past 5 seasons winning three matches to the Magpies two.

The Grand Final rematch was just what the doctor ordered for the 0-3 Magpies after their winless start to the season. 

It was a different Collingwood side that faced Brisbane in round 3, much more aggressive in defence notching up 85 tackles to the Lion’s 53, forcing the home side into mistakes and pouncing on their turnovers.

Nick Daicos looked much better playing out of half-back, recording 30 disposals and creating opportunities for his teammates.

The Hawks did a lot of the right things in their match against the Cats but came undone inside 50, converting just 34.9 percent of the chances in their attacking area. 

Hawthorn won the battle of the stoppages topping the Geelong in hitouts 48-36 and clearances 44-30, but could not convert into good points kicking 10.10 (70) to the Cats 17.4 (106).
