The entire Collingwood playing list is now on deck as the 2013/2014 pre-season steps up a cog on the eve of summer.

The senior players with five or more years of AFL experience returned for the traditional two kilometre time trial on Monday morning and photographer Steve Hamilton was on the scene to capture the action.

As always, Steele Sidebottom was one of the standout performers, while Luke Ball, Nick Maxwell, Adam Oxley, Lachlan Keeffe, Dayne Beams, Harry O'Brien and Quinten Lynch all ran strongly.
