VFL eye-catchers: Round Five

Recap the VFL Magpies' big win Take in the highlights and key moments from Collingwood's win over Werribee in round five of the VFL.

In the days after each of the Magpies' VFL games, Collingwood Media will take a look at some of the eye-catching performers, with a focus on the players who were emergencies for the AFL team and youngsters on the rise. Here's our look at the VFL Pies' win over Werribee at Avalon Airport Oval on Saturday...

Alex Fasolo
Was among the emergencies for the AFL clash with the Lions but wasn't required to make the trip to Brisbane. Performed well in the VFL team's victory over Werribee, working up and down the ground and kicking two goals.

Stats summary: 19 disposals (68% efficiency), eight marks, seven inside-50s, two goals, two score-assists

Sam McLarty
Another player who was an emergency for the AFL match against the Lions. The big man continued to push his case for an AFL debut with a very solid performance against Werribee. Won himself a mention among Collingwood's best players.

Stats summary: 22 disposals (77% efficiency), eight marks, 19 hit-outs, one goal

Brayden Sier
The third of the AFL emergencies who didn't need to head north to Brisbane (Callum Brown was the travelling emergency). The big-bodied midfielder was once more in the thick of the action in the VFL, winning plenty of the ball, hitting the scoreboard and earning a mention among the Pies' best players.

Stats summary: 26 disposals (69% efficiency), six clearances, four tackles, one goal

Daniel Wells
The veteran midfielder continued his strong build-up towards a recall to the AFL team with a typically silky display against Werribee. Spent time in the midfield and up forward and look dangerous wherever he was posted.

Stats summary: 19 disposals (68% efficiency), three clearances, five tackles, one goal, two score-assists

Levi Greenwood
Played his first VFL game for the year after a pre-season interrupted by a knee problem. Did what was asked of him and will build his workload in the  coming weeks.

Stats summary: 20 disposals (75% efficiency), five marks, two tackles
