DISCERNING Carlton supporters (of which there are many) have often argued that Collingwood have given them their gladdest memories.

This was effectively borne out in the messages featured either side of the dark Navy Blue banner raised at the MCG before the 7th Round match of 2017 with Collingwood.

Highlights | Carlton v Collingwood

Watch the highlights from the Blues' strong win over the old enemy in Round 7.

Published on

On what was the 125th anniversary of Collingwood’s first ever contest with its long-time foe – won by Carlton at Victoria Park on Saturday, May 7, 1892 – one side of the banner read thus:

CELEBRATING 125 YEARS SINCE WE BEAT YOU IS A BIT WEIRD . . . BUT . . . WHATEVER.

And the other?

THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES

1915, 1938, 1970, 1979 & 1981

In keeping with historic trends, Carlton yet again rained on Collingwood’s parade, on an afternoon in which Magpie legends were forced to wear ponchos as protection against the drizzle in a pre-match ceremony to mark the anniversary.

Before an audience of more than 70,000 patrons, Carlton, under Coach Brendon Bolton’s watch, opened with a three-goal to one opening term, with Sam Petrevski-Seton, Matthew Wright and Kade Simpson all hitting the scoreboard – and the Blues effectively held sway for the game’s duration.

Daisy's doozy of a dagger (2017)

Take a look back on Dale Thomas' slick goal against his old side in 2017.

Forever etched in the memory is the final quarter goal to Dale Thomas – the only man to represent both Collingwood and Carlton in 100 senior contests. Accepting a short pass in the Sir Wayne Harmes pocket from Charlie Curnow (welcome back), ‘”Daisy” sold a marauding Tyson Goldsack the candy, took a couple of bounces and slotted a banana goal on the run - to the chagrin of Collingwood cheersquad members behind the posts at the Ponsford Stand end.

For the record, “SPS” earned a Nab Rising Star nomination for this one – and three Brownlow votes from the officiating field umpires.
