COLLINGWOOD has thrashed Port Adelaide by 44 points at the MCG to book a berth in its second successive AFL grand final.

The Magpies led at every stage to win the preliminary final 17.10 (112) to 9.14 (68).
Skipper Nathan Buckley, Shane Woewodin and Brodie Holland were among the Magpies' best, while Leon Davis and Chris Tarrant booted three goals apiece.
The only down side for Collingwood came when vice-captain Anthony Rocca was reported after an incident with Power ruckman Brendon Lade.
The Magpies will meet the winner of tonight's second preliminary final between Sydney and Brisbane in next Saturday's grand final.
