REPORTS: Cloke likely to leave Pies

Maligned Collingwood forward Travis Cloke is reportedly setΒ to walkΒ out of the Pies at the end of the season after his latest axing.

Cloke was dropped from the Magpies’ side to face the Bulldogs this weekend, the third time he has been axed this season.

Other Sports News

The Footy Show’s Damien Barrett reported on Thursday night that Cloke “is now resigned to getting out of the Magpies”.

After taking nine marks and kicking one goal last week against Richmond, the latest axing has reportedly left the 2010 premiership playerΒ “really shattered”.

Several rival clubs are said to have been monitoring Cloke’s situation over the past month, with the Bulldogs one of the clubs that are particularly interested in the 29-year-old.

Cloke is contracted for 2017, however, after being dropped for a third time this yearΒ it appears very unlikely that he will remain at the club beyond this season.

The 245 game veteran has kicked 439 goals since making his debut in Round 5, 2005 against Essendon.

  1. Yes his kicking is shocking but you have to wonder why with all that money CFC has why didn’t they get him a decent kicking coach a long time ago, or is it that fig jam doesn’t want him anymore, I don’t care what anybody says it come down to the coach he has the last word, Buckley should go not Cloke

  2. Look. I’m a magpie member. I never miss a game ever. He has shown little glimpses. Had a great game against giants but his form has not been great. I hate seeing him dropped but he was given a chance to lift and has been disappointing. I love him. I wish he could maintain his form but he just can’t. What will be will be. Albeit sad to see.

  3. Sad to see but he is finished ! I have seen him play many games this year and will strugle to ever be a power forward he once was… if the Pies can get a deal done with another club it would be a plus for the Pies !

  4. Cant believe how many players gone since bucks took over no shit….. who would want to b there cant wait til pies up against cloke in his new team and cloke kicks a bag

  5. At his age and with his form the only clubs that would want him are clubs in the premiership window. And he sure as hell wouldn’t be first choice at those clubs.

  6. Buckley is on the right track & I for one knows what Side by Side means, unlike some of the haters on here.

  7. Cloke was dropped on Thursday night for the third time this season after kicking two goals in his past three games, putting his future at the Magpies in doubt.
