The world's most exciting football code, Australian Rules, kicks off 2007 with the first game of its NAB Cup pre-season competition featuring the mighty Collingwood Magpies vs the Kangaroos.
The Collingwood Army is looking for a better season than we've had recently in which we've shown promise but have not made the grade at the business end of the season. Looking at the talent we've brought in I'd have to say that we look like also-rans again but that won't stop me barracking hard for them to do well!
For those that don't know much about the sport, check out these action shots of players sailing into the sky to mark the ball.
