Buckley bullish on Pies' new AFL firepower

  • Buckley bullish on Pies' new AFL firepower

Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley used Melbourne's sweltering heat to push the limits of his squad in a searching training session on Friday morning.

With temperatures forecast to reach 37 degrees, the Pies were put through running and match simulation drills that Buckley said were designed to push his players out of their comfort zones.

"This is what pre-season's about a little bit," Buckley said from the club's Olympic Park headquarters.

"We stretch our players, we poke and we prod and we take them to places that they haven't been before and then see how they handle it."
