B&W Show: Travis Cloke It's time to spoil your mum this weekend for Mother's Day. Travis Cloke finds out what his teammates have in store.

After 13 years in the AFL system, Travis Cloke on Wednesday called time on his decorated career as one of the strongest tall forwards in the past decade. 

He did so as a Western Bulldogs player, but 246 games, two All-Australian nods, one Copeland Trophy and of course the 2010 premiership all came in the Black and White. 

Cloke was drafted to the Magpies as a father-son with pick 38 in the 2004 National Draft. He joined a club with a sense of familiarity. Not only was his dad David a past player, but brothers Jason and Cameron already called Collingwood home.

A 12-year stint at the Holden Centre followed. What took place between 2004 and 2016? The gallery below captures the many memories of our forward line focal point during his time as a...

Collingwood has officially nominated Tyler Brown as a potential father-son for next month's NAB AFL Draft as it waits to see where a bid falls for the midfielder.

The Magpies have lodged the required paperwork on Brown, the son of 1990 premiership player Gavin, ahead of next week's October 31 deadline. 

It formalises the process that will see the Magpies able to decide on draft night whether to match or decline to match a bid for the 17-year-old, whose brother Callum became a Collingwood player as a father-son pick last year.

Tyler is a developing midfielder with a good turn in traffic. At 186cm, he is taller than both his older brother and father. Collingwood National Recruiting Manager Derek Hine believes that while he still needs to mature in size, the youngest of the Brown boys has...
