COLLINGWOOD has locked up the services of mid-season recruit John Noble and top draft pick Isaac Quaynor for two and three years, respectively.
As a rookie taken in the NAB AFL Mid-Season Rookie Draft, Noble was out of contract and has signed a two-year deal, while Quaynor still had one year remaining on his existing contract, meaning his two-year extension will see him in the black and white until 2022.

The 22-year-old Noble was recruited from SANFL club West Adelaide and played five matches, including the qualifying and preliminary finals.
Noble, the son of Brisbane's head of football David, averaged 19 disposals and four marks a match playing as a rebound defender.
John Noble made an immediate impact at the Pies, playing in two finals this season.
"John's story is unlike many others in the League, and we look forward to seeing it continue with the Pies," Collingwood list manager Ned Guy said.
"To be able to come in and have an impact in some of the club's bigger games at the back end of the year is quite remarkable. He'll be even better prepared for 2020 with a pre-season under his belt and his experience in 2019."
Quaynor, 19, played a four-game AFL stint between rounds 16 and 19 in his first season.
As reported by AFL.com.au in July, the Oakleigh product put pen to paper on his contract extension after just three AFL games.
He qualified for the club's Next Generation Academy as his father grew up in Ghana, with the Pies landing the powerful runner with pick No.13 in the 2018 NAB AFL Draft.

"Since arriving at the club, Isaac's professionalism in his approach to training, preparing and playing has been beyond his years," Guy said.
"Isaac has impressed us with his physicality as well as his run and carry at AFL level, and we know he'll only continue to grow and develop over his next few years at the club."
All eyes on the coach: Nathan Buckley has Isaac Quaynor's attention.
Noble and Quaynor's re-signings follows a busy stint for the Collingwood list management team, with veterans Travis Varcoe and Ben Reid – along with category B rookie Jack Madgen, Tim Broomhead and Rupert Wills – signing one-year deals, and Brayden Sier and Will Kelly locked in for two.
The Magpies still have a tricky period ahead, with stars Brodie Grundy, Jordan De Goey, Scott Pendlebury and Darcy Moore all out of contract at the end of 2020.
