Collingwood



"Collingwood players were rugged individualists who integrated themselves into a machine knowing that it was greater than the sum of its individual parts. That machine played football with precision and purpose. Shepherding and chasing were as important as kicking goals. Each player had the specific task of beating his opponent and the general task of assisting his team mates..."

John Devaney takes an in-depth look at the game's biggest and most famous club.
