First-year half-back Tew Jiath will make his AFL debut in Collingwood’s Round 14 clash against North Melbourne at Marvel Stadium this Sunday.

The Gippsland Power product is the younger brother of Hawthorn's Changkuoth.

Selected by Collingwood with Pick 37 in last November’s National Draft, Jiath has played eight VFL games this year, averaging 15.5 disposals and four marks.

His best returns came against Werribee in Round Eight (20 disposals) and 19 disposals against a strong Footscray side at Marvel Stadium in Round Nine.

Impressing with his ability to read the ball, intercept, and take the game on, Jiath’s speed will add to Collingwood’s backline on Sunday afternoon.

Speaking in his weekly press conference, Collingwood Senior Coach Craig McRae was full of praise for the 19-year-old.

"I just love the way he expresses himself on the footy field," McRae said. 

"He goes for his marks like his brother for Hawthorn. He is a talent. I think he is going to be really nice player for us."
