VFL Player Review: Collingwood vs Northern Blues (Round 4, 2016)

I finally found the time to get around to finishing these off… 3. Brent Macaffer Six days is a long time in football, because the Brent Macaffer that ran out against not-Carlton Carlton looked a completely different player to the wreck of a shell of a shadow that meandered around Victoria Park last week.
