Bio

A tall midfielder who wins the hard ball and has the ability to spread and use it well in space, Crisp’s versatility has helped make him one of Collingwood's most important players since arriving from Brisbane at the end of 2014. The 190cm left-footer has good hands and is noted for his ability around the stoppages, while his run, long kicking and strong tackling are other notable features of his game. He has notched three consecutive top ten finishes in the Copeland Trophy and is contracted until the end of the 2019 season.

Season By Season

Season By Season

The remarkable reliability of Jack Crisp has continued into his third season in Black and White. Since arriving at the Holden Centre at the beginning of 2015, the hard-runner from Myrtleford hasn’t missed a single home and away game. He’s now the only man on the Magpies’ list to have maintained such consistency – captain Scott Pendlebury lost his streak when injury struck in late 2017.

Crisp was integral to Collingwood’s game-style throughout the season. His role switched from a position in the midfield and on the wing, to a rebounding defender, often loose at half back. He produced back-to-back games of 27 and 25 disposals in rounds five and six, and tipped over the 30-possession mark against West Coast in round 18.

As the regularity of Crisp’s selection wasn’t an indication enough of his status as coaches’ favourite, he caught the eye of Nathan Buckley and his staff throughout the season. The utility earned AFLPA Coaches votes on three occasions, polling in rounds 11, 18 and 20. With many fans inside the Holden Centre, and throughout the Magpie Army, Crisp appears set to continue to go from strength to strength in 2018 and beyond.

Season By Season

Backed up his breakout 2015 with another consistent season, but one that perhaps did not quite hit the same heights as his first as a Magpie. He played in all 22 games for the second time in as many years and won 20 or more disposals on 13 occasions, and importantly finishing the season in strong form. He ranked third for tackles and fourth for disposals, and earned ninth placing in the Copeland. Signed a three year contract extension during the pre-season that ties him to the club until the end of 2019.

Season By Season

It didn’t take long in 2015 for Jack Crisp to limit the pain of losing midfielder Dayne Beams to a bare minimum. After landing at Collingwood as the part of the Beams deal with Brisbane, 21-year-old Crisp was largely an unknown commodity.

After player just 18 games during three years at the Lions, Crisp found luck under new coach Nathan Buckley and made the trip back to the Sunshine State to play in Collingwood’s round one team. It was a position he took with both hands and refused to let go. Alongside fellow recruit Travis Varcoe, Crisp was one of just four players who played all 22 games for the Magpies in 2015.

After starting the season as a forward and part-time midfielder, his role shifted to a permanent, tagging position in the centre. On the more than a few occasions, Crisp not only shut down his opponent, but also won more than his fair share of the football. He set a career-high in disposals with 27 touches in round eight against the Gold Coast, but went on to surpass this on two occasions, collecting 28 against Greater Western Sydney and then 31 against West Coast in round 16.

It was the game against the Giants in round 11 that was arguably the best game of Crisp’s emerging career. He was awarded three Brownlow votes for a showing which also produced two goals and five tackles. As the season concluded, the recognitions continued to roll in. At his first Copeland Trophy night in October, Crisp walked away with two awards – the Jack Regan Trophy and the Gavin Brown Award (Leading Desire Indicators).

Season By Season

Crisp was forced to wait until round 18 before he was able to force his way into the Brisbane seniors. But once he was selected, he made up for lost time, winning 20 or more disposals in four of his six games and kicking one goal and three behinds during the Lions’ big win over the Magpies in round 21. Crisp laid seven tackles against Gold Coast in round 18 and showed his penchant for breaking the lines when he took three bounces against Melbourne in round 19. When playing for Brisbane’s reserves, he won 20 or more disposals on eight occasions and registered 40 inside 50s for the season.

Season By Season

A tall midfielder (190cm) who wins the hard ball and has the ability to spread and use it well in space. Crisp played two senior games last season and was best afield in the Lions’ NEAFL premiership win over Apsley. Was tipped to play more senior football in 2014.

Season By Season

Came to the club as a rookie and was quickly elevated to the seniors, playing 10 games. At 190cm, he is a tall midfielder who showed a thirst for winning the hard ball. Is considered to be one of the best aerobic athletes on Brisbane’s list.

Season By Season

Like Brisbane teammate, Tom Rockliff is a Murray Bushrangers midfielder who was snapped up by the Lions after being overlooked in the National Draft. He is a 189cm midfielder/utility who takes a good mark.
