Magpies’ banner continues prison bar stoush

Collingwood‘s cheer squad has fired the first jab ahead of the prison bar clash between the Magpies and Port Adelaide at the MCG.

With Port’s heritage guernsey causing a long-running feud between the two clubs, Magpies players ran through a banner that once again took a shot at the iconic strip.

“IS BLACK & WHITE OURS? WITHOUT A DOUBT, YES STICK TO WEARING TEAL AND WRECKING INXS’,” the banner read.

The mention of INXS was a nod to Port Adelaide fans singing the INXS song Never Tear Us Apart before the club’s home games at the Adelaide Oval.

The pre-game sparring between the two teams was welcomed by AFL great Dermott Brereton, who was left chuckling at the banner.

“Very cheeky,” the five-time premiership Hawk told Fox Footy.

“As long as it’s not derogatory, I think that’s cheeky enough to fly. Well done.”

While it is banned from wearing the prison bar guernsey, Port Adelaide still found a way to have black and white on its away guernsey against Collingwood.

Despite the club’s primary colour being teal, there was no teal to be seen on its away guernsey which is predominantly gray, but features a black and white ‘V’ on the front of it.
