The cursed Giants are in serious trouble at 0-3 for the first time in coach Leon Cameron's eight-year tenure. They have a horrendous injury list and face tough games against Collingwood, the Swans and the Bulldogs over the next three weeks.

Question marks hang over Collingwood's ability to finish off matches this season. Fortunately, after they take on West Coast next week, they face a softer schedule on paper featuring the Bombers, Suns and Kangaroos.

What time does Collingwood vs GWS start?

This match at the iconic MCG starts at 7:25pm AEST on Saturday 10 April.

Collingwood vs GWS match preview

GWS Giants injury list.

We expect the Magpies to win this comfortably given the Giants' poor form combined with their growing injury problems. The Giants will be missing skipper Stephen Coniglio (ankle), tagger Matt de Boer (hamstring) and former club captain Phil Davis (calf) among a long list of absentees.

Pies coach Nathan Buckley says the hitout stats are a "furphy" but in-form ruckman Brodie Grundy's dominance is still a key plank in his side's quest to make the AFL finals. They will be hurting after their one-point loss to the Lions and will take out their frustrations on the hapless Giants.
