Collingwood youngster Oliver Henry is pushing his claims for a debut in round 1.

The forward was recruited with pick 17 in the draft, which was the pick the Magpies received from the Western Bulldogs as part of the Adam Treloar trade.

Henry, the brother of Geelong’s Jack Henry, starred in the Magpies intra-club match last week and was praised for his ability to read the play and take intercept marks.

Henry kicked two goals in the first quarter to put his hand up to fill the void left by Jayden Stephenson’s departure to North Melbourne.

Recruiters last year compared Henry to Port Adelaide forward Conor Rozee for his ability to do special things in the forward line.

“He is someone who can do some special things, especially in the air,” said Geelong Falcons’ regional manager Michael Turner said and reported by Jay Clark for The Herald Sun.

The Magpies begin the season against the Western Bulldogs on Friday, March 19 at the MCG.
