COLLINGWOOD smashed Hawthorn from the first bounce on Saturday night to win by 64 points at the MCG.
Steele Sidebottom with 27 disposals and Heath Shaw with 26 possessions led the Pies to the 17.21 (123) to 8.11 (59) win.
“We had a pretty good contribution across the board. I don’t think it was one division,” coach Mick Malthouse said.
“I don’t think you can beat Hawthorn or St Kilda or the Dogs … unless you have pretty good contributions.
“I haven’t seen the video of the game … but I would be very surprised if we didn’t just have more than the senior players playing well.”
