One down, two to go

Howe's first Collingwood interview Collingwood Media caught up with Collingwood recruit Jeremy Howe after he crossed over to wear the black and white.
Jeremy Howe has officially joined Collingwood after 100 games at Melbourne.

It’s the morning after the first big deal of trade period. Jeremy Howe is a Magpie and there could be others ready to join him. Recap all the latest in today’s Pies in Print.

“High flying Melbourne forward Jeremy Howe has finally been traded to Collingwood after a four-way deal was completed on Monday.

Howe will join the Magpies and Melbourne’s Jimmy Toumpas will move to Port Adelaide. Collingwood Ben Kennedy will shift to the Demons and Magpie Paul Seedsman will move to Adelaide under the deal.

A number of complicated exchanges of draft picks were also involved to balance out the trade for the Demons, Power and Magpies.”

“High-flyer Jeremy Howe has backed himself to be successful after sacrificing money to fulfil his childhood dream of playing for Collingwood.

The former Demon will receive about $350,000 for three seasons with a trigger for a fourth – less than offers at Gold Coast and North Melbourne…

Howe has missed just one game in 101 since making his debut in round 11, 2011, and finished ninth and sixth in Melbourne’s past two best-and-fairest awards.”

Brisbane standing firm in James Aish trade with Collingwood

“Brisbane is standing firm – it won’t be letting James Aish go for a second-round pick.

Aish has nominated Collingwood as his destination club of choice after informing the Lions that he wanted a trade, but Schwab says little – if any – progress has been made in talks with the Magpies with just three days remaining in the trade period…

North Melbourne expressed interest in the midfielder late last week, having been keen on nabbing him before he was drafted to Brisbane.”

Secret op not so hip
Herald Sun – 20/10/15

“Greater Western Sydney’s medical screening of Adam Treloar found he did not need surgery on his troublesome hip.

Treloar will today be offloaded to Collingwood after weeks of negotiations, but the Giants are unapologetic for their hard-line stance…

Contrary to the advice Treloar received from the Giants, Collingwood medical staff established his groin injury was hip related.

Both the Pies and GWS have vowed to publically move forward in a deal that will deliver the Giants two first-round draft picks.”
