Collingwood confirmed its spot in the finals with a 38-point win over Richmond, but the Magpies face a nervous wait on the availability of Jordyn Allen and Sophie Casey.

Jaimee Lambert starred as the Magpies recorded a comfortable 6.11 (47) to 1.3 (9) victory to secure a qualifying-final berth next weekend.

But Allen and Casey both face scrutiny from the match review officer over incidents in the first half of the clash with the Tigers at Victoria Park.

Casey crashed front-on into Tayla Stahl and made head contact as the pair contested a loose ball, while replays appeared to show Allen striking Emelia Yassir in the stomach in an off-the-ball clash.

Yassir left the field moments later.

The incidents were part of a bruising encounter, with Lambert nursing sore ribs through several crunching contests.

The Magpies’ gun on-baller was best afield with match-high tallies of 31 disposals and eight tackles before being rested on the bench for the final few minutes of the match.

Sophie Alexander kicked two goals for Collingwood, as Sarah Rowe (18 disposals), Ruby Schleicher (25), Aishling Sheridan (22) and Mikala Cann (23) racked up plenty of touches.

The result meant Richmond finished the season with a 3-7 win-loss record, while the Western Bulldogs and Carlton were eliminated from the finals race following the Magpies’ win.
