Before the game, all eyes will be on Brent Harvey in the leadup to his 426th game.
After tonight, no one will have ever played more VFL/AFL games than Boomer.
But once the ball is bounced, the action will take centre stage.
With North’s season in freefall, and Collingwood rediscovering its best footy, this match is a true coin-toss.
Despite their strong start, the Kangaroos are only two games inside the eight.
Will the Roos snap their five-match losing streak? Or can the Pies claim another big scalp?
