Buck­ley proud of troops

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - AFL -

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.”
