Feeder side keeps Pies hot, hungry

COLLINGWOOD'S willingness to flick players between its AFL and VFL teams has left every player with the belief that he could play a part in September, says Brent Macaffer.

Macaffer, who began the season in the VFL team and had another three-game stint there mid-season, said the club's ownership of its VFL side made it easier for players to do the things that would earn them a recall and had created greater competition among the group.

"When you go back to the VFL you're going back there for a reason, and having our own VFL side has been great; they play to the same structures and game style that the AFL side plays and I know that's been a great help for me. When you go back, you do the exact same things they want you to be doing when you're playing for the AFL team," he said after Collingwood's 98-point win over Essendon on Friday night.

When the afl finals start Collingwood's vfl side would have already been eliminated during the first week of finals.
Greg Domasevic will remain on 199 games and be delisted at the end of the season. No club in their right minds will draft him.
The list at the lower level of Collingwood's vfl team is not great and will probably lose next week to the improving Gold Coast who are striving for their first win in Melbourne and playing for afl contracts for next season. The following week they will lose yet again whoever they play Bendigo, Preston or Box Hill.
According to reports Medhurst went very ordinary on Friday after some ordinary vfl performances leading up. Good build up I think not.
