Click here for blow-by-blow updates and live scores from Geelong and Collingwood’s semi-final at Gabba, with the first rebound at 740h

Geelong captain Joel Selwood fired a thinly veiled shot at critics of his team’s final record after an impressive semi-final performance against Collingwood

Although many pundits regard the contest as an upstream thriller, the Cats took the upper hand in the opening minutes, scoring four goals to one in the opening quarter, before missing 15 ten (100). to 5 2 (32) Gabba winners

After being forced to undergo finger surgery during the week, Selwood finished with 18 assignments and one goal in the win and addressed critics of the team in a post-match interview

« It’s tough to win finals We are told every week we can’t do it, » he told Fox Footy

« For our group that we’ve built a lot this year, we think we can keep winning. We just had that attitude that we understood they had a pretty tough challenge ahead of them heading to Perth and coming back, so if we start well that would put us in a good position

« We keep building, we understand that we are a different group, we play a different football than what we have in the past and if we play like that we are going to be really hard to beat »

A major talking point in the preparation for the match was the fact that a loss at Geelong would mean champion Gary Ablett would play in his last game, and the Cats star has shown he is not yet ready. throw in the towel

Ablett had just three divestitures in the first quarter, but had three stakes in the score as he used his experience to shine forward

Scott knocked Brownlow medalist Patrick Dangerfield out of goal space and it turned out to be an inspired move, with the All-Australian scoring four goals to accompany 19 disposals

Dangerfield kicked two of its four majors in a groundbreaking second-quarter performance as the Magpies went scoreless to head to the main break amid a 54-point deficit

With the game almost over at the main break, Geelong’s forward line continued its slaughter in the second half, with medalist Coleman Tom Hawkins adding four majors to reach the magic 600 goal mark

Geelong will now face the Brisbane Lions in a preliminary final at Gabba, with the winner advancing to the AFL Grand Final

FINALLY Collingwood broke the drought of his goals as Brodie Grundy returns and scores his second goal of the night

A looooooong time between drinks for the Pies, with that being the first goal since Jamie Elliott broke up at the end of the first quarter

A disastrous evening for the Magpies, who are now trying to avoid entering the record books for all the wrong reasons

With this goal, Collingwood thankfully avoided his lowest score in the final, but it won’t do much to please Nathan Buckley

The good news for Collingwood is that they managed to stem the tide in this neighborhood, holding Geelong aimlessly

The bad news? They failed to score a goal themselves which means they are now down to 120 YEARS

Collingwood’s 1 in three quarters score of 1 (7) is its lowest since the 0 7 (7) he scores against Carlton in Round 6, 1900

Just injury management now for Geelong for the final half hour here with their place in the preliminary final all but confirmed now

The Magpies won so many fans with their brave performance last week in the West, but they were blasted here after a dismal performance in the first period

Former Saints coach Grant Thomas was one of many to cram alongside Nathan Buckley after taking a 54-point deficit in the main break

« Mentally unprepared in my opinion You don’t put this garbage in unless you’re mentally fried before the game starts »

In the meantime, it’s safe to say that rival fans are having a little fun at Collingwood’s expense tonight

An absolutely incredible fist half from Geelong that I’m sure even coach Chris Scott probably couldn’t have dreamed of

Pretty much everything has happened since the very first rebound, and Geelong absolutely blitzed a shell shocked Collingwood team here in the second quarter

It was a historically gruesome half for Collingwood, with tonight’s first half the first time they’ve been limited to a single goal in the half since the 1960 Grand Final

« That’s when the only thing that will slow it down in the second half is that the Cats players are aware of next week »

Geelong absolutely dominated the game in the middle, and indeed everywhere and here are some of the key stats from this second quarter

Patrick Dangerfield made his mark on this game and he made it in the front row with two totally different acts

The first came when he came out of the goal box and smashed a packet, bringing the ball to the ground in the process which ultimately led to an easy goal for Luke Dahlhaus

A few minutes later, he takes a brilliant mark on the chest in the right front pocket before calmly inserting a banana from the dividing line

The deficit has now grown to 35 points for Buckley’s men Richo notes they look « lethargic » all over the place and you wonder if they are feeling the effects of such an inspiring win last weekend

This opening quarter went about as bad as you might have imagined from Collingwood’s perspective, except for a late goal from Jamie Elliott

Geelong looked a bit too slick for the Pies everywhere and takes a 22-point lead in the first change after goals against Tuohy, Stewart, Miers and Hawkins

However, the big news is that Collingwood star Taylor Adams was forced to take off during this quarter due to what appeared to be a serious elbow injury

Adams’s left arm flexed awkwardly in a more muffled attempt, but it looks like he’s going to give it away with that elbow now tied up

In what could be his last game if the Cats lose tonight, Gary Ablett has been sensational so far with three scores involved in his three disposals

« They have been dominated in all areas, but they are not excluded There is so much that they can fix in all areas of the ground »

It was a cautious opening with both sides feeling ready to start this one, but Gary Ablett made an immediate impact after starting on the bench

He shows his incredible class as he weaves his way through the congestion before a perfectly weighted inside 50 pass to find Zach Tuohy in the lead, and the Irishman converts

The Cats dominated the territory early on and it was a good start for them after a slow start last week!

We’re underway here at Gabba and Geelong has started Patrick Dangerfield up front Gary Ablett on the bench to start, while Harry Taylor has work on Mason Cox!
