Ex-Pie changed Murray's career

Trade: Watch Sam Murray's highlights Sydney defender Sam Murray will join Collingwood in season 2018. Watch the former Wodonga junior's best highlights from his second season with the Swans' NEAFL team in 2017.

Guidance from an ex-Magpie helped transform the career of Collingwood’s newest recruit.

Sam Murray, who arrived at the Holden Centre during the final day of the AFL’s trade period, spent his first season on Sydney’s rookie list playing predominantly as a small forward.

He performed admirably, kicking 16 goals to earn a second year in the Red and White.

But time spent with Sydney’s NEAFL coach Rhyce Shaw, a 94-game Magpie between 2000 and 2008, helped change the course of Murray’s career.

“I started my career at Sydney as a small forward, but I didn’t really crack it there,” Murray admitted in an interview with Collingwood Media on Thursday afternoon.

“I went back and developed...

AFLW: Pies recognised for historic opener

Doco: Our Debut Take an inside look at Collingwood's groundbreaking inaugural AFL Women's league season. From round one disappointment to an exhilarating first victory, each moment is captured as we learn the stories behind this history-making group of footballers and support staff.

February 3, 2017.

It was Carlton and Collingwood.

Arch-rivals, meeting once again. But this time, there were new faces and new stories set to be unveiled on the big sstage.

The AFLW had arrived, and it was here to stay.

Both teams were ready to launch a new era of women’s football. But little did they know how that night would unfold.

That night, that game, will be remembered forever.

It will also now be known as the 2017 ‘Moment of the Year’, after winning the prized honour at this year’s Women in Sport Awards.

Pies finalise AFLW list

The captain introduces our new recruit Collingwood's AFLW captain Steph Chiocci interviews Chloe Molloy, Darcy Guttridge and Iilish Ross after the 2017 AFLW National Draft.

Collingwood has finalised its 2018 AFL Women’s list after securing 18-year-old Holly Whitford in the Rookie Draft on Friday afternoon.

The versatile midfielder/ forward was taken at pick No.2 after playing in the VFLW competition for Cranbourne this year.

AFL Women’s coach Wayne Siekman said Whitford will be a welcome addition to the Pies’ forward line in 2018.

“Holly has the ability to be a dangerous small forward and despite her height she isn’t afraid to throw her body around,” Siekman said.

“We’re excited to have Holly join our forward line with the likes of Sarah D’Arcy, Moana Hope, Jasmine Garner and the recently drafted Chloe Molloy.”

A long-term trade outlook

Two re-sign as Pies and Swans speak As the NAB AFL Trade Period continues, trade talks reportedly progress between Collingwood and Sydney, while two young Magpies put pen to paper.

Collingwood's Director of Football Geoff Walsh says the Magpies won't have a problem fitting Gold Coast co-captain Tom Lynch into their salary cap if they make a play for the forward.

Lynch, who turns 25 in October, is set to be the major prize of the 2018 free agency sweepstakes, and continues to be linked with a move back to Victoria.

Collingwood looms as a likely destination if Lynch chooses to go home, particularly as coach Nathan Buckley prepares to experiment with Darcy Moore as a defender in the pre-season.

"It's 12 months out and (Lynch) is still contracted, so it's a bit wishlist stuff, but suffice to say, he's a top-of-the-tree player," Walsh told AFL Trade Radio.

"I think I speak for all...
