Iconic club Collingwood has been rebuilding since coach Nathan Buckley set about restructuring the list at the end of 2013, when the club finished sixth and last played finals. The result has been 11th and 12th finishes in the past two seasons, but so strong has been the rebuild – especially in attracting ready-made young stars from other clubs – that the Magpie faithful can expect an improved showing from the famous black and white in 2016. The Pies have added the pick of the ‘movers’ from the 2015 trade period – the exceptional GWS GIANTS midfielder Adam Treloar, who at 23 comes with a record of 79 games (48 goals). He led the Giants in disposals and goal assists, and finished second in the club’s 2015 best and fairest. Treloar joins a midfield already boasting captain and superstar Scott Pendlebury; the former Giant and tough ball-getter Taylor Adams; veteran Brownlow medallist Dane Swan; former Kangaroo hard nut Levi Greenwood; and another ‘club-swapper’, the classy Jack Crisp, who finished third in the 2015 Magpies best and fairest in his first year after moving from the Brisbane Lions.
Collingwood can expect big improvement from exciting young tall forward Darcy Moore, who showed great promise in his nine games last season, while the club will be encouraged by the fact that injury-plagued defender/forward Ben Reid was able to play the last five games of the season without trouble. Other improvers are expected to be youngsters Jordan De Goey (16 games) and Tim Broomhead (19 games), and agile ruckman Brodie Grundy (41 games), who is in his fourth season. The club has traded 2015 Anzac Day medallist Paul Seedsman to Adelaide, but picked up young Brisbane Lions midfielder/forward James Aish, who was a first-round draft pick (No. 7) in 2013. Collingwood didn’t get a draft pick last year until No. 32, when it surprised by selecting the little-known Brayden Sier, a Marcellin College schoolboy in 2015, who had played only two TAC games. The highly rated, but injury-prone Matthew Scharenberg (pick 6, 2013), will miss 2016 following a knee operation due to a training mishap in November.
