Buckley proud of troops
A “NUMB” Nathan Buckley didn’t picture the result, but said he had never been prouder of Collingwood.
Buckley conceded he and his players would be haunted by the late stages of their fivepoint loss to the Eagles in yesterday’s epic grand final, having experienced what he described as a loss of dare and cleanliness with the ball,
“I’m enormously proud of our club, I’m proud of the players. There’s a lot of boys in there that are hurting … but I didn’t picture this,” he said.
“Those little moments will haunt the players and will haunt us, because we need to be clean with that … but that’s the game we played,” he said.
“I pictured us happier right now than we are.”
