Blues ready for ‘different’ Pies in crucial AFLW clash


Carlton is planning to meet a much improved Collingwood at Ikon Park on Sunday in round two of the AFLW after the Magpies equalled their 2019 season win tally with an opening round victory over West Coast.

Blues coach Daniel Harford has noticed the Magpies are attacking better already this season under new coach Steve Symonds and their disappointing 2019 season was irrelevant.

Collingwood have also benefited from the return of Chloe Molloy and ruckman Sharni Layton although they will be without star recruit and former Carlton captain Bri Davey, who has been ruled out with a leg injury.

Harford said Carlton, who lost last year’s AFLW grand final to Adelaide, after making rapid improvement under their new coach, had shown good signs in their round one win against Richmond and it was vital they back it up against their conference rival.
