Two Blues Link to Magpies

Collingwood's grand final mission this weekend has several links to Prahran Football Club.

Key defender Tom Langdon (pictured at training this week) is a former Prahran juniors player, Magpie coach Nathan Buckley coaches the Prahran Under 13s (his sons Jett and Ayce play at the club) and head of recruiting Derek Hine is a past player, coach and life member of the Two Blues.

Langdon, a former Melbourne Grammar student, was selected at pick 65 in the 2013 National Draft via the Sandringham Dragons post his juniors days at Prahran. His brother Ed plays for Fremantle.
