Wallace names the three clubs who would suit out-of-contract Collingwood forward


Terry Wallace has named the clubs who he believes would suit out-of-contract Collingwood forward Brody Mihocek, saying he could play a crucial role at Melbourne, Essendon or Western Bulldogs.

With Collingwood’s season now over after their loss to Geelong in Saturday night's semi-final, the club is now faced with several list decisions on out-of-contract stars such as Darcy Moore and Jordan De Goey, as well as Mihocek.

The 27-year-old was picked up as a mature-aged player in the 2017 Rookie Draft and has so far played 58 games for the Magpies in three seasons.

Speaking about Mihocek's future, Wallace listed three opposition clubs who could do with a medium-sized forward like him.

“He’d suit Melbourne, no doubt,” he said on AFL Nation.

“He’d suit Essendon and still suit the Bulldogs; I know they’ve gone to the well (to recruit new forwards) but it’s not necessarily working for them (this year).

Anthony Hudson said the talk around Mihocek’s future was an interesting proposition, considering he would likely command a significant contract at an opposition club.

Hudson said whether he stays at Collingwood or not would come down to if he’s “tempted” by a big-money offer.

“Mihocek is the one that really interests me,” he said.

“I think they’ll get the other two deals of (Darcy Moore and Jordan De Goey) done but Mihocek wouldn’t have been on much money until now, his chance to earn a really big living out of (another club) would be there from someone.

“(The question is) is he tempted by that.”

Mihocek kicked 25 goals from 18 games in 2020, while also averaging just under four marks.
