A win for Collingwood today would have them sitting in second place on the ladder, but if the Doggies are in good form they might just give them a run for their money.

It was a big week for the Dogs with star midfielder Josh Dunkley signing a contract extension for a further three years down at the kennel.

The Pies will also be without youngster Jaidyn Stephenson who will serve the first of his match suspensions this round.

Brodie Grundy up against Tom English will be the match-up to watch today.
