THE NICHE REFERENCE THAT SHOWS NICK DAICOS IS A FOOTY NUFFY:
Daicos played a starring role in Collingwood’s win over Adelaide at the MCG on Sunday with 37 touches, 8 clearances and a goal, and spoke to to Triple M Footy in the rooms immediately post-game.
Nathan Brown brought up John Noble’s two late tackles that helped repel the Crows, who were pushing hard to try and conjure a winning goal with two points the difference and under two minutes remaining.
Daicos said it brought back memories of a late moment in the 2012 grand final, when Sydney beat Hawthorn by nine points.
