THERE have been some very memorable days for Collingwood fans on Anzac Day.

But we're asking Magpie fans for their favourite.

Collingwood and Essendon were set to play this Saturday on Anzac Day but with the season on hold due to the coronavirus outbreak, and the AFL Live Official App have the next best thing for footy-starved fans.

Most renowned as the Mark McGough game. In driving rain throughout the day, second-gamer McGough was the star for the Magpies. The in-and-under midfielder was perfectly suited to the wet conditions, gathering 24 disposals and writing himself into Anzac Day history with his breakout performance. The Pies, on their way to the Grand Final that season, easily accounted for the Bombers.

It was fan favourite Alan Didak who provided the golden touch in the last quarter as the Magpies overran the Bombers to win by 17 points. Dashing half-back Ben Johnson claimed the Anzac Medal after gathering 30 disposals, while first-year sensation Dale Thomas took a brilliant high mark exciting Collingwood supporters.

In a gripping and tight contest, Essendon looks set to snatch the victory when midfielder Brent Stanton kicked a late goal to put the Bombers ahead with two minutes left on the clock. But as the Magpies pressed forward, it was Jarryd Blair who became the hero, toe-poking the ball through from close range. The AFL's goal-review system was called into action and Collingwood won by a heart-stopping point.

Dane Swan haunted Essendon fans on Anzac Day, and never more so than than in 2014, when the brilliant Brownlow medallist dominated. Swan kicked four goals from 26 disposals and won his second Anzac Day Medal. In a tight contest the Bombers were unable to stop the midfield gun, who always saved his best for the biggest day of the home and away calendar.
