Adams snaps from near CHF to the square, three Collingwood talls there, Moore brings the ball to ground and it’s the beanpole Cox who kept his feet to volley the goal! (Q4 19:21)
1:29 at the next centre bounce, two kicks in it, it has to be Cox with his height to kick at least one of the two to win it. (Q4 19:50)
