A hint at selection? Today on The Source, Collingwood's players were split into two groups at training on Thursday, in what could be a sign of impending moves at the selection table.

After more than a year out of senior football, Jamie Elliott is in line to play against St Kilda at Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Yes, the rumours are true.

Jamie Elliott is back in the Collingwood line up.

After more than a year out of senior football, the 24-year-old is in line to play against St Kilda at Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

He joins Jarryd Blair and Lynden Dunn in the 25-man squad.

The long wait is over
589.

That’s how many days it will have been since Jamie Elliott last played a senior game for Collingwood when he runs out against the Saints.

The pocket rocket has had his past 18 months ruined by back and ankle injuries, but has been cleared to return after snagging five goals in last week’s VFL practice match against North Ballarat.

But it’s not just Jamie
Experienced heads Jarryd Blair and Lynden Dunn are also in line to play against St Kilda.

Both performed well in the VFL practice match against the Roosters last Saturday.

Blair was omitted from the senior side after the second round loss to Richmond, while Dunn has not appeared since the second round of the JLT Community Series.

What happens next?
With the match scheduled for Sunday, Collingwood and St Kilda will confirm its final team at 5pm on Friday evening.

Stay tuned to the club’s social media channels and collingwoodfc.com.au for further details.

VFL Magpies
There’s much to look forward to when Collingwood’s VFL team heads to Piranha Park to take on Coburg in the opening round of the state league season this Saturday.

Up to 21 AFL-listed Magpies are in line to play, including Daniel Wells, who has been named for his first match of any kind since crossing to the Holden Centre at the end of 2016.

Tickets cost $10 for adults and $5 for concession or pension card holders. Children aged 15 years or under enter for free.

Social Sunday
Easter Sunday is Social Sunday this weekend as we take on the Saints at Etihad Stadium.

To celebrate, we’re handing over the keys of our Twitter account to you. When the first ball is bounced at 3.20PM on Sunday, you barely see us Tweeting at all. That’s because we want you to do it for us as we retweet the best and most creative fan messages all game long.
