Damian Barrett Reveals Victorian Destination For GWS Top Pick
"They've had their eyes on him for a long time"
Damian Barrett has revealed Collingwood looms as a likely destination for out of favour GWS forward Will Hoskin-Elliott.
"There's a lot of interest in the GWS guys who can't get regular games," he said on the Friday Rub.
"Will Hoskin-Elliott, Collingwood has had its eyes on him for a long time."
The 23-year-old forward has played 50 games for GWS and kicked 41 goals after being drafted with pick four in the 2011 AFL draft.
"There's nothing I'm hearing suggesting he won't be at the Magpies next year," Barrett said.
The Magpies are already in Hoskin-Elliott's lineage - his great grandfather Charlie Norris played in a Collingwood premiership back in 1910.
