With Nick Daicos and Nathan Murphy out for weeks, those at the second level for the Magpies were keen to impress in their match against Werribee on Sunday.

Given the role as first ruck after being dropped from the senior side, Mason Cox dominated at the bounces to finish with 46 hitouts but Collingwood didn't benefit from the tap work, just breaking even on clearances and losing the match by 35 points.


The big American also kicked a goal from 15 disposals.

Jack Ginnivan was the Pies' only multiple goalkicker with two, while Nathan Kreuger missed a couple of opportunities to finish with 1.2 from 11 touches.


Collingwood's midfielders had trouble getting their hands on the ball throughout, trailing Werribee by 119 disposals for the match, with Trey Ruscoe (20 disposals, seven marks) and rookie Cooper Murley (20 disposals, one goal) the busiest of the senior-listed players.

Harvey Harrison made his presence felt with a team-high eight tackles and a goal, Ed Allan did his bit at stoppages with six clearances and 15 disposals, and Reef McInnes also slotted a goal from his 12 touches.

Will Hoskin-Elliott was relatively quiet with 11 disposals and a behind.

The gun youngster finished with a team-high six clearances along with 23 disposals, seven marks and four tackles, also taking a nice hanger to round out a very impressive afternoon.

Peel Thunder was never really challenged as they cruised to a 98-point win over West Coast on Saturday.

Mid-season draftee Jack Buller kicked another four-goal haul for Sydney in the Swans' 78-point thrashing of rival Greater Western Sydney.

The 22-year-old key forward made his one appearance at AFL level in round 14 but failed to impress, however, he continues to turn heads at the lower level and will only be better after a proper pre-season.
