Well, it would appear as though Collingwood’s season is spiralling out of control.
The Magpies are sitting in 15th position on the ladder with a 2-5 win-loss record.
And any chance Collingwood had of keeping their faint finals hopes alive will be seriously put to the test this weekend when they face second-placed Greater Western Sydney at Spotless Stadium.
However, history is on the struggling Pies’ side. They have won all five of their meetings with GWS by an average of 48 points.
The Giants are on the rebound after suffering an upset loss to St Kilda last week –a result which ended their five-game winning streak.
The Magpies are also coming off a bitterly disappointing performance which saw them lose to arch rivals Carlton in a match that celebrated their 125th birthday.
