The Magpies have reportedly made a late and strong attempt to land the signature of Jeremy Cameron for the 2021 season.

There have been rumours flying in recent times that Collingwood could be looking to offload some big-name players such as Adam Treloar, it all makes sense if they’re planning to offer a big-money deal.

7NEWS’ Tom Browne reported the possibility on Saturday, saying he was getting the impression that the Giants believe the Magpies are involved in discussions with the 2019 Coleman Medallist.

“Strong impression the Giants believe Collingwood has become the third club into Jeremy Cameron, coming hard late.

Wise words from retiring champion Gary Ablett have provided a calming influence for Geelong players experiencing AFL grand final week for the first time.

Ablett is one of seven players in the likely Cats line-up with previous appearances on the game’s biggest stage.

He and fellow veteran Harry Taylor have played in three each, while captain Joel Selwood has played in four.

But 15 Cats will play in their first grand final on Saturday night against Richmond.

In contrast, the Tigers are likely to go in with just one player – emerging star Noah Balta – who doesn’t have a premiership to his name.

The aim of the game is to trade objects with people, starting with a paperclip, and obtaining the most valuable item possible.

McIntosh may have a grand final to play against Geelong on Saturday as the Tigers chase their third flag in four AFL seasons – but the savvy defender is also focused on his side hustle in the Queensland hub.

“We were just sitting around the dinner table one night having a laugh and I said, ‘Why doesn’t someone do the paperclip story’,” McIntosh told 7NEWS.

“There’s a documentary of a guy in America who trades a red…

Brisbane veteran Allen Christensen has announced his AFL retirement at the age of 29 after failing to play a senior game this year.

Christensen was just 20 when he won the premiership with Geelong in his first year in 2011.

The man nicknamed “Bundy” played 65 games for Geelong before moving to Brisbane at the end of 2014 for a fresh start after losing hundreds of thousands of dollars to gambling.

Christensen added another 68 games for the Lions, including two finals last year.

But he was unable to crack into the senior side this year, with surgery on his back during the pre-season putting him behind the eight ball.

“Obviously the flag is something I will look back on with great fondness but it happened so long ago and I was so young and at…
