In The Mix: Round 17 v Eagles

John Noble at Pies training

John Noble
Has been a revelation in the Pies' VFL side since joining the club from West Adelaide in the mid-season draft. A dashing half-back, who boasts great speed and skill, Noble was named as an emergency for the AFL team's clash with the Hawks. The following day he lined up in the VFL game against Werribee and finished with 28 disposals, four tackles and a mention among Collingwood's best players. Had been very good the previous week as well, when he collected 22 touches and kicked a goal against North Melbourne at Victoria Park.

Taylor Adams
Hasn't played since suffering a serious groin injury against Port Adelaide in round seven. Has been putting in a power or work on the training track and in the gym in recent weeks and is very much in the mix to finally return for Friday night's huge clash with West Coast at Optus Stadium.

Levi Greenwood
Missed last Friday night's loss to Hawthorn at the MCG due to a shoulder problem, but has been listed as a "test" in the Pies' injury list and is right in contention to return to face the Eagles.


Tyler Brown
Another of the emergencies for the AFL game against Hawthorn, the younger of the Brown brothers lined up in the VFL and tallied 19 disposals in the Pies' three-point win.

Ben Crocker
A regular among the emergencies for the AFL side this season, Crocker racked up 17 disposals and kicked a goal in the VFL Pies' win over Werribee.
