VFL: Highlights of Sier and Wills Watch the best of Brayden Sier and Rupert Wills' performances against Geelong in the VFL on Sunday. Sier had 24 disposals and five clearances, while Wills had 29 disposals and six tackles.

In the days after each of the Magpies' VFL games, Collingwood Media will take a look at some of the eye-catching performers, with a focus on the players who were emergencies for the AFL team and youngsters on the rise. Here's our look at the VFL Pies' win over Geelong at the Holden Centre on Sunday...

Jarryd Blair
Was among the emergencies for the AFL clash with the Cats but wasn't required after Ben Crocker won the nod to replace Scott Pendlebury and Josh Daicos was made the carry-over emergency (the player held back from VFL duties in case of a pre-game injury in the AFL side). Blair his chances of earning a recall to the AFL team no harm at all by performing strongly at the Holden Centre, winning plenty of the ball and hitting the scoreboard. Topped off his afternoon by kicking the winning goal.

Stats summary: 27 disposals (63% efficiency), seven clearances, five tackles, two goals

Alex Fasolo
Also an emergency for the AFL clash with the Cats, Fasolo showed good signs in the thrilling VFL win. Won praise from VFL coach Jared Rivers for showing great composure in the frantic final minutes.

Stats summary: 25 disposals (80% efficiency), nine marks, two goals

Levi Greenwood
Played in the backline for the second week running and looked right at home. Pushed up the ground when required as the Magpies worked hard to lock the ball in their forward line.  

Stats summary: 17 disposals (59% efficiency), six marks, three inside-50s

Brayden Sier
Continued to push his case for a call-up to the AFL team by racking up plenty of the ball (he had 16 handballs in his tally of 24 disposals) and doing plenty of the hard stuff. Was on fire in the first quarter as Collingwood piled on six goals to one. With injuries impacting the AFL side, he is waiting in the wings if a chance presents itself.

Stats summary: 24 disposals (58% efficiency), five clearances, three tackles, four inside-50s

Rupert Wills
Like Sier, Wills was in the thick of the action as the Magpies made a flying start. And he ran out the game well, finishing with a total of 29 disposals, which included 21 handballs.  

Stats summary: 29 disposals (72% efficiency), six tackles, four rebound-50s
