Pies unfazed by week off in AFL finals

Collingwood defender Jeremy Howe says he doesn’t believe having the week off will make a difference to their AFL preliminary final hopes.

The Magpies lost their first final last year before fighting their way to the grand final, with Howe saying it allowed them to build form by playing each week.

“I don’t think it makes a difference – just whoever’s better on the day gets the job done. Last year we ended up playing every game so we managed to find some form throughout the finals series,” Howe said.
