Faff, he played 17 games last year (2017), and he's a potential 50/60-goal player. That's why the Pies will give him every chance to get himself right.

Worldly wingman Tom Phillips is set to receive a richly deserved Xmas/NY present – a contract extension with the Pies... Also wants to develop his inside game, while doing great work with World Vision

The Pies have the most players in the top 100 in the Official AFL Player Ratings. How many does your club have?

Pies had at least a couple of cracks at him. Would've been interesting to see what Jock would have done with him. He might've been a better player in a better team... Yep, he played with Len Smith at Northcote & Fitz and had a warm r'ship with both Smiths.

Brayden Sier was a pleasant addition to ’s midfield in 2018, but will the return of Dayne Beams hold him back?

Will the return of Beams stifle the development of Sier?
