Relentless Magpies see off Dockers to book preliminary final date with Swans

Resurgent Collingwood are one win away from a remarkable grand final berth after beating Fremantle by 20 points to charge into an AFL preliminary final.

Four unanswered first-quarter goals set the Magpies up for a 11.13 (79) to 9.5 (59) semi-final victory that booked a final-four date with Sydney at the SCG.

The victory, headlined by Jordan De Goey’s outstanding midfield display in front of 90,612 at the MCG, adds another layer to Collingwood’s unlikely rise from 17th to the top four under new coach Craig McRae.

De Goey (24 touches, six clearances and 12 score involvements) starred alongside Jack Crisp (two goals, 24 disposals and six clearances).

Jeremy Howe and Darcy Moore marshalled a well-drilled defence while Jack Ginnivan kicked three goals.
