An extraordinary moment in club history
When Jamie Elliott kicked the match-winner from the boundary he became only the second player in Collingwood history to kick the winning goal after the siren. The first was Chris Tarrant against Adelaide in 2003.
Josh Carmichael is cool under pressure
In only his third AFL game the 22-year-old looked utterly composed, kicking two important goals from set shots after he was subbed on for Brayden Maynard in the final term. "He's a country kid and just loves playing footy - he's living his dream," Craig McRae said post-match. "He's living in the moment and he played like that in the last quarter."
Goal of the Year on lock
Josh Daicos' incredible first quarter snap is almost a certainty to take out GOTY. He kept the ball alive on the wing, evaded two tackles, took two bounces, opened up the angle and snapped truly on his right boot. He's having a stellar season and he finished yesterday's game with 19 disposals and four score involvements.
Winning on spirit
This group plays with so much heart and they just keep finding a way to win. "I believe we are winning games on spirit," Fly said after the game. "This group has an enormous will to win."
Jack Crisp a key contributor
He's so important every week and was among our best players again yesterday - notching up 23 disposals, seven score involvements, five inside 50s and four intercepts.
