Collingwood CEO Gary Pert spoke to 3AW Football before the game.

Pert said he thinks long-term contracts for coaches will be phased out, and that Nathan Buckley will probably only get one-year extensions from here.

Collingwood is in the spotlight after limp efforts against Sydney and St Kilda early in 2016. 

But the Pies will be boosted by the returns of Steele Sidebottom, Travis Varcoe, and Alan Toovey for this afternoon’s clash with Melbourne at the MCG.

Melbourne, too, has come under fire, particularly for their loss to Essendon in Round 2.

With two teams under pressure to perform, there are sure to be fireworks at the G today!

TODAY’S LINE-UP from 12PM: Matthew Richardson, Cameron Ling, Tim Lane, Tony Leonard, Mick Warner, and Sam ‘Scoop’ McClure.
