Collingwood Gears Up For Higher Draft Picks As Buckley Stays

Collingwood Magpies FC have confirmed they are in a long-term rebuild as they plan for the future with higher draft picks over the next two years.


At a press conference today President Eddie McGuire announced that Nathan Buckley would be reappointed coach for a further two seasons.

The Magpies's results under Buckley's reign have deteriorated each season and the club has not made the finals since 2013.

However, the plan to keep the underperforming Buckley means the club will have a better shot at securing higher draft picks in the following years, which is good strategy considering next year's draft is highly rated.
