GALLERY: A unique AFLW camp

Watermelons, egg catching, pre-dawn wake ups and grueling training sessions. 

Collingwood's AFL Women's pre-season camp was nothing if not unique. 

With the full squad assembled in the Latrobe Valley, the three-day trip provided not only bonding opportunities, but a chance to fine-tune skill and fitness levels before the grind of the season begins.

Just what took place on the camp? Collingwood Media photographer Luke Henry was on hand to snap some of the best moments.

Collingwood’s links to the Oakleigh Chargers have been strengthened with the signings of three new VFL Women’s players from the development club.

Julia Halaseh-Russo, Sarah Cameron and Hannah McLaren have all become Magpies, effective at the beginning of the revamped VFLW competition in 2018.

It brings the total list of players to five in total, after Sophie Alexander and Jessica Edwards became Collingwood’s first signings last week.

The Oakleigh trio are fresher faces, and add an element of youth to the Magpie program.

“In 2018, we’re going to have an exciting mix of players wearing the famous Black and White stripes in the VFLW competition,” AFL Women’s coach Wayne Siekman told Collingwood Media.

The unwanted phone call

Rookie: Highlights of Brody Mihocek Get to know Brody Mihocek, the player chosen by Collingwood at pick No. 22 in the 2017 National Draft. Mihocek hails from Port Melbourne, via Tasmania.

1pm. Lunchtime on a sunny Monday afternoon in Port Melbourne.

A 25-year-old factory worker sat down to eat.

Then his phone rang.

It was the phone call Brody Mihocek didn’t want to receive.

“I was told that if I didn’t hear from them, it would be a good sign,” he said.

“I got a call at 1pm and I had just started my lunch break. I was reluctant to pick it up because I thought it was going to be bad news.”

Fortunately, the voice on the other end was bearing good news.

It was that of a Collingwood recruiter, who told Mihocek he remained every chance of ending the day on the club’s rookie list.

“I met up with the recruiters on Monday and they said if I didn’t hear from them, it would be a good sign,” Mihocek...

Rookie Draft: Oxley remains a Magpie

Adam Oxley will remain a Collingwood player after being selected with the Magpies’ third pick (No.33 overall) in Monday’s rookie draft.

The selection means the defender extends a career at the club which begun in 2013. At the time, Oxley was a largely unknown prospect from Redland Football Club in Queensland.

He’s since pulled on the Black and White 31 times, producing a 33-touch game against Adelaide in just his fourth appearance, and being awarded two Brownlow votes a fortnight later against Carlton.

Despite showing potential at half back, Oxley has been cursed by injuries in recent times. Hip and back injuries prevented the 25-year-old from playing a senior game in 2017.

“Adam’s shown some promising signs over his career and unfortunately due to injury hasn’t always been able to play to the full potential we know he’s capable of,” Collingwood GM of Football Geoff Walsh said in...
