Collingwood has put in commanding final term where they kicked six goals to one to beat the Saints by 41 points.
The game was close throughout with St Kilda dominating in large portions of the second and third quarter but were unable to match the Pies in the final term.
Travis Varcoe has been reported for his hit on St Kilda’s Ed Phillips late in the first term. Phillips was cleared of concussion which could work in Varcoe’s favour.
