NAB Cup Round 2 Games
Monday 21 Feb 2011
Etihad Stadium will host three matches in Round 2 of the NAB Cup.
Melbourne and Essendon will begin the big weekend of footy on Thursday night at Etihad Stadium. The match will begin at 7.10pm.
Essendon progressed to play the Demons after a thrilling draw with St Kilda in the third match of last weekend's NAB Cup event. Mark Williams nailed a shot at goal after the siren to give new coach James Hird a successful debut.
On Friday night Collingwood and Sydney will play at Etihad Stadium at 7.40pm. The Pies cruised through to the second round with victories against Carlton and Richmond.
The Swans' massive win over Greater Western Sydney allowed them through to the second round despite finishing behind the Gold Coast Suns in their group.
The final game at Etihad Stadium in Round 2 will see Geelong and St Kilda face off for the first time since the two sides fought out a thrilling and controversial final in 2010. That match will be played on Saturday night beginning at 7.10pm.
