An unflappable defender who took all before him in his first season of league football. Langdon, who was plucked from the TAC Cup late in the 2013 National Draft, managed 19 senior games in his first year in the AFL system and was rewarded for his efforts with the Harry Collier Trophy as Collingwood’s best first-year player. With a cool head, an obvious ability to read the play and clean disposal, Langdon looms as an important component of the Magpie backlines of the future.

Season By Season

Season By Season

An excellent first season for the composed young defender. Langdon stepped into the breach left by the often-injured Nick Maxwell and made the third tall defender spot his own. He was second in the AFL for intercept marks up until round 15. His ability to read the play and use the ball under pressure drew comparisons with former Magpie champion James Clement. He is likely to be a permanent fixture in Collingwood’s defence for years to come.

Season By Season

A medium defender/midfielder who came of age in 2013. His balance, game sense and ability to read the ball in flight give him a significant advantage when the ball is in the air. A strong overhead mark and fluent kick of the football on his preferred right foot, his ball use is smart and consistently finds its target. Played senior football for VFL club Sandringham for much of last season after being overlooked in the 2012 National Draft.
