St Kilda young gun Lance Collard shines in the VFL

Jackson Clark -

St Kilda young gun Lance Collard has put his hand up for a senior recall after producing a dazzling four-goal display in the VFL for Sandringham in his team’s win over Essendon on Sunday.

The West Australian was the most lively forward on the ground kicking a game high four majors in the Zebras’ 38-point win over the Bombers at Trevor Barker Beach Oval.

Collard also gathered 14 disposal – including 11 kicks – in Sandringham’s 17.13 (115) to 11.11 (77) win.

The exciting forward made his AFL debut for the Saints in Round 1 against Geelong but started as the substitute and managed only 31 per cent game time in his team’s eight-point loss.

The 19-year-old from Subiaco was originally a member of West Coast’s Next Generation Academy, but was taken by St Kilda with selection number 28 in last year’s AFL National Draft.

In other VFL news, former Brisbane Lions player Blake Coleman had his best performance for his new club Williamstown by kicking three goals on Friday.

Coleman joined the Seagulls at the end of last season and was excellent in the thrilling six-point win over Coburg at Highgate Recreation Reserve.

On Saturday, Phoenix Spicer continued his impressive start to the season with a two-goal effort for Footscray in a 14-point win over Casey Demons at the Casey Fields.

The speedy small forward was impressive throughout the pre-season and has kicked five goals across the opening two rounds of VFL action.

Spicer played 12 games at AFL level across three seasons on the Kangaroos’ list.
