FRIDAY night wasn’t strong on highlights unless you were watching Twitter.

The Magpies-Dockers clash at the MCG didn’t reach any great heights – especially with the mercury hovering around 6 degrees – but injured Collingwood star Dane Swan certainly provided some.


The Brownlow Medallist took over Collingwood’s Twitter feed for the night, live tweeting the action while providing some Magpie gameplan and fashion insights.

Swan wasn’t afraid to give his teammates a clip either, sledging the likes of Travis Cloke and Travis Varcoe after they made errors early in the game.

There were a couple of highlights for Magpies fans to get excited about.

Mason Cox kicked a beauty in the opening term, which didn’t go unnoticed, while Tom Phillips kicked his first goal in AFL football and can look forward to a visit from Swan on Monday.

Swan doesn’t mind the fashion world and recognised his teammates for making good use of the bye to get a new do.

However, despite what was meant to be a serious job of covering the game, Swan was distracted and missed the start of the third term after sneaking in an after-dinner weights session.

At least we can prove he’s serious about his rehab program … sort of.

Swan’s tweets certainly didn’t go unnoticed with plenty loving the coverage and insights.

Fair to say, Swanny didn’t mind the attention either.

Swan signed off on a serious note with some hope for Magpies supporters.

Well, serious for at least for a couple of minutes.
