Collingwood places no expectations on Nick Daicos ahead of AFL debut against St Kilda

Prized Collingwood father-son recruit Nick Daicos will make his AFL debut in the Magpies’ round-one match against St Kilda at Docklands on Friday.

Former Western Bulldogs onballer Pat Lipinski will also play his first official match for the Magpies after overcoming an ankle injury.

But the Magpies have lost Will Hoskin-Elliott to COVID-19 protocols, while assistant coaches Brendon Bolton and Josh Fraser are also isolating at home.

Magpies coach Craig McRae confirmed the debuts for Daicos and Lipinski on Wednesday.

Daicos, whose father Peter is regarded as a Collingwood great, has enjoyed an outstanding preseason after he was recruited with the number four pick in last November’s national draft.
