AFL preliminary final live: Sydney Swans Vs Collingwood Magpies, news, updates, how to watch, when’s it start

Welcome to news.com.au’s coverage of the AFL preliminary final between the Sydney Swans and Collingwood Magpies.

The Magpies are a win away from the grand final after finishing 2021 in 17th after a monumental turnaround built on playing under pressure.

Collingwood have given their members heart attacks nearly week after week, coming from behind and winning squeakers throughout the season.

But the Swans earned their place in the top four and a week off after downing the defending premier Demons in week one of the finals.

The winner takes all in this one and will earn a trip to the MCG to take on the Geelong Cats for premiership glory.

First bounce is scheduled for 4.45pm AEST.
