Thursday, 25 October 2012

"From our point of view, Jack's contracted for 2013 and we'll wait for Jack to get back from holidays," Bond said.

Fremantle coach Mark Harvey says he may turn struggling forward Jack Anthony into a defender.

New Fremantle recruit John Anthony says he is happy to play at either end of the ground for his new side.

"All I want to do is play senior football and I'm thankful to Brad (Lloyd) and obviously the Fremantle Football Club for giving me the chance to do so," Anthony said.

"In saying that, I've got a long road ahead of me and I've got a whole pre-season to get through. I've got to earn my spot again."

Wednesday, 10 November 2010
Collingwood delists forward John Anthony in its second list lodgement on Wednesday just prior to the 2011 national draft.

"I think the lack of interest in Jack in trade week was probably a product of his form during the year," Collingwood football manager Geoff Walsh said.

"By his own admission he didn't have a great year. He was selected seven times in the seniors and dropped five [times]. It's not a great recommendation for clubs to be building their hopes around.

"If a club has shown some interest in him since, well from his point of view I hope that works out."

Eleven rounds into the season, John Anthony has seemingly come from nowhere to make the focal point of the Collingwood forward line his own.

"We feel confident as a backline that whenever we give him the ball he is going to kick a goal, and the team will be rewarded," Collingwood captain Nick Maxwell said.

"That is a massive feather in his cap, and an outstanding attribute to have at his age."

Anthony was offered a week for headbutting Kangaroo Scott Thompson in the groin while Taylor has been handed a two-match ban for rough conduct against Carlton's Setanta O'hAilpin.

Saturday, 25 April 2009
Collingwood coach Mick Malthouse believes forward Anthony Rocca still has a lot to offer the club despite some ordinary form to start 2009.

Malthouse believes Rocca can be a valuable mentor to up and coming Magpie forward Jack Anthony.

"Don't forget Anthony Rocca has been out for a number of weeks and hasn't had a massive pre-season," Malthouse said.

"Anthony Rocca is a very, very important player for this football club.

"When he gets enough games under his belt, he will be that instructive type of person that Jack Anthony needs."
