Mick McGuane was a hard running on-baller or half back who picked up plenty of possessions. He was one of Collingwood's leading players of the 1990s, winning Copeland Trophies in 1992 and 1993, and starring in the 1990 grand final win over Essendon. An AFL All Australian in 1992, McGuane played 152 V/AFL games and kicked 128 goals for the Magpies between 1987 and 1996. In 1997 he crossed to Carlton, saying he wanted a fresh challenge, but he added just three games to his tally before calling it a day.
