After a tight opening half, Collingwood came out and stamped their authority on the match in the third quarter with four goals to run out 36-point winners over the Western Bulldogs at Victoria Park on Sunday afternoon.
A four-game winning streak came to an end for the Dogs, after the Pies swooped with seven second quarter goals.
With the win the Pies have now won six in a row, as they reclaimed their spot as ladder leaders with the 7.9 (51) to 2.3 (15) victory at their spiritual home.

The Pies sent a message to the rest of the competition this afternoon that the premiership cup is there's for the taking after they steamrolled the Dogs in the second half.
The Dogs were left shellshocked and did not have any answers to stop the dominant performance from the Pies.

Changes to the configuration of elite women’s football in Victoria will for the first time see a full talent pathway program with the NAB League Girls, VFLW and AFLW competitions being played at the same time.
Ahead of Round 1 of the 2020 VFLW season this weekend we take a look at the international players that have landed list spots of five clubs. In an open border situation with no Covid-19 issues, we could have expected more international talent in the VFLW. Players such as April Lewis, Clara Fitzpatrick, Erin McLaughlin, and Jess Blecher are just a few who were on VFLW lists in 2019 who are not back in Melbourne to play.
