Will now finally on right side of fence

Will Hoskin-Elliott “never missed” an ANZAC Day clash as a boy.

An avid Collingwood supporter, Hoskin-Elliott will now experience the traditional blockbuster against Essendon as a player for the first time.

While the Magpies’ round one clash with the Western Bulldogs attracted 66,254 spectators – the largest crowd of the former Giants’ career – at least 20,000 more are expected on Tuesday.

“The big crowds and the big occasions like ANZAC Day are really amazing to play in (and) were partly why I wanted to come to Collingwood,” Hoskin-Elliott said yesterday.

“We’ll just keep it normal. We’ll do training and recovery and just keep it (the build-up) normal.”

Pies go to Wells

is on the verge of an ANZAC Day debut for Collingwood.

But coach Nathan Buckley is adamant he is not the solution to all the Magpies’ attacking woes.

The former Kangaroo – who performed strongly in the VFL last weekend – has been plagued by injury since joining the Pies at the end of last season but he is expected to feature in Black and White for the first time against Essendon on Tuesday.

“He got to get through a couple of training session, but we’ll anticipate that he’ll be fit to play,” Buckley said.

“The reasons we brought him into the club… one, he’s a class player, and he’s got a lot of experience. But he’s a very good user of the footy and he’s great around stoppages and he’s great in the forward-half use and it just happens to be the area that we’re falling down in particular at the moment.

Moore must drop back to move forwards

From what we’ve seen of Darcy Moore over his short career, we already know he can pull off the spectacular. Let’s not forget he booted five goals in a game against the Western Bulldogs last year.

He has good skills and even at almost 200 centimetres has great speed and a decent tank.

But while he might have all of the attributes to be a key forward, right now in his development, he should be sent to centre half-back.

McGuire rejects calls to end Collingwood’s three-game ban on young gun De Goey

Collingwood President Eddie McGuire has rubbished suggestions midfielder Jordan De Goey should be rushed back into the senior side before his ban ends.

McGuire was responding to football analyst David King, who said De Goey’s impressive VFL return and Collingwood’s dire AFL predicament meant he should be brought back into the side two matches before his scheduled return.

McGuire’s answer was an emphatic “no”.

Wells set for ANZAC Day debut, Daicos out, Cox in mix

Daniel Wells is on the cusp of his Collingwood debut on ANZAC Day, Josh Daicos definitely won’t play and Mason Cox is right in the mix to play on Tuesday – the same stage that made for his memorable AFL debut last year.

Former North Melbourne veteran Wells has played one game in the VFL after overcoming a calf complaint and Nathan Buckley is confident his inclusion will greatly assist the Magpies with the one component that has mainly let them down this year: forward line conversion.

…Buckley is confident the big American’s aerial presence will help the Magpies keep the ball up forward and give strong support to under-pressure young forward Darcy Moore.

And a little bit more Pies in Print (sorry Mitch!)...
