Pies chasing another star Giant

Collingwood, like several other clubs, have raided Greater Western Sydney’s talent pool in recent years, recruiting the likes of Adam Treloar, Taylor Adams and Will Hoskin-Elliott.

Now the Pies are reportedly interested in luring another GWS youngster back home to Victoria.

Sportsday’s Mitch Cleary, has reported that the Pies have set their sights on signing small forward, Devon Smith.

Smith, who has played 97 games and kicked 91 goals for the Giants, has strong links to several people at Collingwood. He played alongside both Adams and Treloar in Vic Country’s U-16s side and was coached by Nathan Buckley during that time.
