PLAYERS TO WATCH
Position: Half-back/Outside Midfielder
Downie was one of the few bottom-agers to crack last year’s stacked Vic Metro line-up. Utilised mostly as an outside midfielder and half-back during his bottom-age year, Downie became a key member of the Eastern side which took out the NAB League minor premiership. The well-built Hawthorn NGA prospect looks primed for more inside midfield minutes in 2020 though, with his class on the ball and ability to find it both transferrable assets.

Position: Balanced Midfielder
A classy ball user and gifted with plenty of footy IQ, Brown is looking to join her brothers Callum and Tyler playing in the black and white stripes at the elite level. Brown is father-daughter eligible to the Magpies thanks to her father Gavin who captained the club back in the 1990s, and Tarni shares similar traits to her brothers. She is clean with ball-in-hand and moves incredibly well, able to side-step opponents and get out of trouble easily. While she has been working on building her consistency over time, Brown has some high quality assets that make her a player to watch at any level, and one to keep an eye on in 2020, particularly if you are a Collingwood fan.
