It was a case of deja vu up at ANZ Stadium as Collingwood stormed home to beat the Swans by 20 points.

The contest was a titanic arm wrestle for the first three quarters and after the Swans trailed at the final change, Lewis Jetta put them in front early in the last quarter.

But the Pies rallied to kick the final three goals of the match and secure their ninth win from their past 10 outings at the venue.

Sydney had more disposals (366-352), clearances (44-37) and inside 50s (50-49) but it mattered little as the Magpies finished the game much stronger and probably should have won by more given they kicked 3.7 in the final term.

The Swans, who are now 0-2, jumped out of the blocks to kick five of the first six goals and lead by 23 points in the second term.

However, the visitors hit back to kick seven of the next nine majors and lead by 11 points midway through the third quarter before the hosts tightened things up at the final change.

There were plenty of winners across the park for Collingwood with fourth-gamer Jack Frost limiting Lance Franklin to just two goals, Brent Macaffer restricting Kieren Jack to a paltry 13 disposals and Dayne Beams racking up 30 disposals (15 contested) and a crucial goal.

But the Magpies' skipper Scott Pendlebury was their best as he overcame a slow start to end up with 33 possessions (16 contested), 10 tackles, nine clearances and a delightful goal in the second quarter.

Heritier Lumumba (28 touches and nine marks) and Nick Maxwell (22 and eight) in his 200th game were both valuable contributors too.

For Sydney, Dan Hannebery was tireless with 29 touches (14 contested) as was Josh Kennedy with 28 (15) and seven tackle.

Luke Parker registered 21 disposals (16) and 10 clearances and Ted Richards did a reasonable job on Travis Cloke (two goals).

Jarrad McVeigh (27) and Tom Mitchell (26) saw a lot of the ball too.

Q4 26 MIN, SYD 68 COLL 88

Clinton Young seals the deal for Collingwood!! Only 56 seconds remaining now, it's game over!

1:36 of playing time left at ANZ Stadium, not looking good for Sydney at all.

How did Jesse White miss that? Directly in front 5m out after Dane Rampe spoiled his own team-mate! Maybe White still has a soft spot for his old side!

Q4 23 MIN, SYD 68 COLL 80

Less than three minutes remaining in this one. Sydney needs someone to stand up here!

Sam Reid's set shot from 50m out in front agonisingly hits the post after he took a lovely contested mark.

That will make things tough for Sydney! Jamie Elliott bobs up again for his third goal!

AFL behind

Q4 19 MIN, SYD 67 COLL 74

Jarryd Blair's set shot from 50m amazing hits the base of the post! No Sydney defender got near it. Blair got his opportunity after being pushed in the back by Jarrad McVeigh.

Collingwood have taken eight intercept marks to Sydney's zero in the final quarter.

Nick Maxwell has taken five intercept marks in his 200th game.

Q4 14 MIN, SYD 67 COLL 73

Collingwood back in front! Dayne Beams snaps truly around his body with his non-preferred foot. What a game he has played. He also has 29 disposals.

So much at stake here, none of these clubs wants to be 0-2 after two rounds!

And in case you were wondering, it's all over at Patersons Stadium. Freo lead Gold Coast 73-33 in the final quarter.

Nick Maxwell takes an important intercept mark on defensive 50 which denied Ryan O'Keefe a possible scoring chance.

Jarryd Blair's set shot from a tight angle 50m is also punched through for a behind. Scores are level!

Swan's running shot from 50m is punched through for a point. What a thriller this is!

Brent Macaffer hits the post from a very tight angle.

Nathan Brown returns to the bench in a sling. Sad sight, let's wish him a speedy recovery.

Q4 3 MIN, SYD 67 COLL 64

Terrible turnover in defence from Collingwood. Clinton Young tries to hit up Taylor Adams but the latter is spoiled, Lewis Jetta swoops on the crumbs and kicks a checkside punt through the big sticks. Swans back in front.

Sydney subbed Gary Rohan out for Craig Bird
