Live: Melbourne v Collingwood


FULL TIME - Melbourne 3.10 (28) Collingwood 8.13 (61)

A defensive grind and forgettable game ends with Collingwood breaking away in the last quarter to beat Melbourne by 33 points. 

Melbourne appeared to be threatening late in the third but a gift goal for the Pies and early strike in the last quarter put the match out of reach.

As much as Melbourne were competitive, they ultimately lacked the scoring power to threaten once Collingwood opened up an arms-length lead. 

Travis Cloke booted two goals while Dayne Beams had two to go with 19 possessions. 

Clinton Young and Scott Pendlebury collected 26 possessions each, Dane Swan 25. 

Nathan Jones had 29 touches for Melbourne and Bernie Vince 25.
