Who does Eddie think will win the Norm Smith Medal?

President of the Collingwood Magpies, Eddie McGuire, has told Halftime with James Willis that he hopes Mason Cox will win this year’s Norm Smith medal.

‘I’d love to see big Mason Cox win it, because if he does, we would have won the Premiership! You know I just hope it’s a magpie’

McGuire also said that he never lost faith in his club, even after calls to sack the coach at the end of last year.

‘We were pretty confident that we had a really good team, but we couldn’t get them all on the park at the same time’

‘There seems to be an amazing resilience at the moment at our club and every-time a challenge is thrown down, we are up for the challenge…It’s a really happy place to be’

McGuire also was quick to dismiss any injury concern for star defender Jeremy Howe.

‘He got through training today, looked sensational, yep he’s right.’
