Collingwood vs Port Adelaide match preview
Both teams had similar victories in round 1 last week.
Collingwood trailed Geelong for most of their round 1 clash, before kicking the final 8 goals of the game to end Geelong's 16-game winning streak.
But the Pies will be without veteran Jeremy Howe, who injured his arm in a sickening collision.
Collingwood had many players strong across the field in their first match, including the Daicos brothers, Jordan De Goey and Tom Mitchell in his first AFL premiership game for the club.
Another club debutant also shone for Port Adelaide, who trounced Brisbane Lions by 52 points.
Jason Horne-Francis had plenty of disposals and clearances in his first run for the Power, after joining from North Melbourne.
Port dominated the second half to put the game out of the Lions' reach.
These 2 teams were the 2 highest points scorers of round 1, so we'd expect another high scoring affair here.
But someone would have to come out of the gate faster to make their mark.
With a home ground advantage, we think that might be the Magpies.
