Everyone has their kryptonite.
For Mick Malthouse’s men it’s their goal kicking.
The inclusions of Luke Ball’s hardness and Darren Jolly’s first class tap work, the improvement of Sharrod Wellingham and surprisingly Leigh Brown has seen Collingwood finish at the top of the ladder and now primed to break their 20 year premiership drought. Yet doubt remains over their ability to finish off their hard work.
Watching Travis Cloke kicking at goal is like watching Rob Oakshott talk dribble for 30 minutes as he attempts to explain which party he supports. Its just painful.
The positive for Collingwood is they continue to have ample shots at goal.
The negative. Come prelimary final or even Grand Final day, neither Geelong or St Kilda will allow their opposition the luxery of 30 to 40 scoring shots a game.
Collingwood’s goal-kicking may just cost them dearly when the stakes are at their highest.
