Fitzroy, like Essendon, were beaten on Satur day, but they had a weak team, and with nothing hanging to it, were not worrying. Some of their supporters were Indignant at the poor showing, for Collingwood had by no means their full   streugth. It is a pity that clubs should not pro- duce their best. Tomorrow, with G. Collins, H.   Jenkin, and Williams available again, the side will be at its full strength, with the exception of Cockram, whose presence on the half forward   line is always valuable. The team were enter tained on Monday evening by a supporter in the pavillioin-not a very good preperation for an all important match. G.Rattray, who captained the     side last season, and has been coaching the Mel- bourne team this year, and L. Gale, who went to Horsham as playing coach this year, have been training this week. The players held a meeting last night, as is their custom on the eve of an important engagement, and discussed a plan of campaign. The team was not selected until a late   hoar last night. when Fergie, G. Collins, Elliott, iJenkin, and Williams were selected In place of   Dealandea, N. Ceilllus, Dontiellan, Warren, and
