Darcy Moore Biography

Saturday, 12 August 2023
Darcy Moore is ruled out for the remainder of the home and away season after straining his hamstring in the first quarter of Collingwood's win against Geelong.

“Darcy underwent scans on his left hamstring this morning and the results have shown a low-grade hamstring strain which he sustained during the first quarter of last night’s game,” Pies' footy boss Graham Wright said.

“He will miss the next couple of matches, and at this stage, we expect him to return to the field for our first final."

Darcy Moore equals the AFL's record for intercept marks with a total of 10 against Carlton.

Moore was initially believed to have broken the record outright with 11 before a post-match analysis reduced his official tally to 10.

"At times you'd just think he was the forward. He just outreads the opposition, and he is playing on incredible players – they are not mugs in the game – and he just out positioned them," Magpies coach Craig McRae said of Moore's performance.

Following in the footsteps of his father, Peter Moore, Darcy Moore is named Collingwood captain for the 2023 season.

"It is truly an incredible honour to be given the opportunity to lead this team," Moore said.

"The Collingwood captaincy is significant in its own right but it also holds another layer of significance for my family and I. To follow my father’s journey as captain of the Collingwood football club at almost the same stage in his football journey is very special."

"Clearly, given the ages of all three players, there is significant upside," Collingwood list manager Ned Guy said.

Friday, 28 September 2018
Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley has revealed a "shattered" Darcy Moore wasn't considered for selection ahead of this week's Grand Final after failing a fitness test.

"It was an unacceptable risk for us to take, given it was such a big game. That was the same situation as last week," Buckley said.

"Darcy was understandably shattered with that, the fact that time had run out for him. He hadn't been able to prove his capacity to get through a game of footy."

Monday, 6 August 2018
Darcy Moore faces an uphill battle to return before the end of the 2018 regular season after suffering a hamstring strain.

"It is a new injury, to the opposite leg Darcy has recently had issues with, which means that it can be treated as a standard hamstring strain," Collingwood's general manager of football Geoff Walsh said.

"Darcy will now get into his rehabilitation program and look to be back before our season concludes."

Tuesday, 17 July 2018
Darcy Moore's manager, Liam Pickering, says his client will likely remain at Collingwood in 2019 despite strong interest from rivals.

"Are there clubs inquiring about Darcy? Of course there are. Darcy is the flavour of the month now," Pickering said.

Pickering said Moore was happy at the club his father Peter captained and won a Brownlow Medal for, and his decision wouldn't come down to the size of a contract.

"He's going to get well paid wherever he's playing, so I don't think the money will be the issue," Pickering said.

"It's a matter of what he decides to do and when the time's right to discuss it.

"He's a Melbourne boy, his old man played for Collingwood and he was a Collingwood kid growing up, so there's certainly no issues at Collingwood."

Wednesday, 31 January 2018
Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley says Darcy Moore will start season 2018 as a defender.

"He's looked exceptional behind the ball," Buckley said.

"We're excited about what he can bring on the field.

"We intend initially to play him as a key back, and he's got his head around that (and is) looking forward to it."

Tuesday, 12 December 2017
Peter Moore says his son, Darcy Moore, will find life easier in Collingwood's backline and blamed the Magpies' game plan for starving their forwards of opportunities in 2017.

"One of the problems at Collingwood is the way they play. Their chosen game plan is a five-man forward line playing on seven defenders, so it's very difficult for forward to kick a lot of goals and get a lot of opportunities," Peter Moore said.

"The other issue is their entries into the forward half were absolutely hopeless in the first half of last year.

"When you add all that up, forward line is not the best spot you can be at Collingwood and Collingwood forwards don't kick a lot of goals."

Tuesday, 25 July 2017
Darcy Moore will likely be rested for Collingwood's clash against Adelaide despite positive scan results on his neck injury.

"Structurally the scans are fine, the MRI has come back pretty well in regards to ligaments and soft tissue, but that does not mean there is not some bruising of some sort," Buckley said.

"He's just a sore boy at the moment, copping a knock to a sensitive part of the body. His long-term future and welfare is of paramount importance."

Sunday, 23 July 2017
Darcy Moore is taken to hospital after losing his balance backing into a huge pack against West Coast and a group of players landed on his neck as he fell.

"Darcy has injured his neck in some shape or form," Magpies coach Nathan Buckley said post-game.

"We're not exactly sure. We don't think it is serious but there were definitely precautions taken to not put him out on the field because he had a significant blow to it."

Saturday, 20 August 2016
Darcy Moore's season is finished after he injured his right hamstring in the second quarter of Collingwood's match against Gold Coast.

Moore hurt himself while attempting a mark and was seen wearing ice on his hamstring in the rooms at half-time, and did not return to the interchange bench to start the second half. He eventually appeared in a tracksuit top on the sidelines in the final quarter.

Saturday, 13 August 2016
Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley says Darcy Moore will be the centrepiece of the Magpies' attack for years to come.

"We'll build a forward line around Darcy for the next ten years and he's ready to go now," Buckley said.

"He's only played 25 games and he's ready to impact the competition in a big way and he's going to be really important for us starting now."

Monday, 1 August 2016
Darcy Moore earns the round 19 Rising Star nomination after dominating in just 34 per cent of the game against West Coast.

Moore kicked 3.2, took six marks (five contested) and contributed one goal assist before hurting his hamstring in the second term.

To be told he would not be going back on to the field against the Eagles was frustrating, but he knew if he had, he might have done more damage to his hamstring.

"It was frustrating but I work with the medical team every day so I know they've got my best interests at the forefront of their minds," Moore said.

"I didn't have an issue when they made that call and you get pretty used to it when you're a 20-year-old, 200cm footballer. You get wrapped in cotton wool and get treated like a baby giraffe a lot of the time."

Monday, 30 May 2016
Darcy Moore is set for an extended period on the sidelines after having a plate inserted to repair a fractured collarbone.
Monday, 17 August 2015
Jordan De Goey is the round 20 NAB AFL Rising Star nominee after playing the best performance of his 13-game career against Sydney.

The tenacious onballer laid 12 tackles, collected 18 touches, launched five inside 50s and booted a goal at the SCG.

If there was one Collingwood teammate who Jordan De Goey was reluctant to tell about his NAB AFL Rising Star nomination, it was his best mate: Darcy Moore.

"I didn't want to break his heart," De Goey joked.

The Pies youngsters have enjoyed their verbal jousting this season, each teasing the other that they were yet to receive the prestigious weekly award.

But now De Goey has bragging rights.

"He'll be all right. I think he'll be happy for me," he laughed.

Friday, 3 July 2015
Darcy Moore makes his AFL debut for Collingwood at the MCG with 4 disposals (2 kicks and 2 handballs) and a mark in a 10-point loss to Hawthorn.
Thursday, 14 May 2015
Collingwood has shored up its future by re-signing young trio Jordan De Goey, Darcy Moore and Jackson Ramsay to contract extensions.

De Goey and Moore, who were both top-10 draft picks last year, were contracted to the club until the end of 2016 on the standard two-year deals presented to draftees.

But the duo have added a further two years onto their stay and will both be tied to Collingwood through to the end of 2018.

The improving Ramsay has also agreed to a new two-year deal after playing all bar one game so far this season.

"We've been lucky enough to get three of our really exciting younger players to sign up for the long-term," club football manager Neil Balme told the club's website.

"It kind of doesn't matter today, because today's about playing. But in the longer-term it's very important to us and it is to them as well, so it's really good news."

Thursday, 30 April 2015
will be without father-son recruit Darcy Moore for at least a month after scans revealed tendon damage to his hamstring.

The promising Moore, who has been in good form in the VFL, injured his hamstring on Sunday against Essendon.

Magpies director of football Neil Balme told the club's website the Pies would take a cautious approach with Moore to ensure he didn't develop any long-term issues.

"It's not as bad as it could have been but we'll have to be very careful to make sure that this doesn't become that's chronic for him. It's quite sad, he's been playing magnificent footy," Balme said.

Sunday, 26 April 2015
Darcy Moore is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines after injuring his left hamstring in the VFL.

The 19-year-old was injured in the final quarter of the Magpies' 32-point loss to Essendon at Windy Hill.

Moore was slow to get up near the wing and was helped off the ground.

Monday, 23 February 2015
Darcy Moore says he's a chance to return from a "freakish" toe injury in time to make his Magpies debut in the NAB Challenge.

"I just had a bit of a freakish (injury) … no break, just a bit of a sore ligament," Moore said.

"We've got five or six weeks until round one, so we can afford to take time and really get back running on top of the ground, which is what I was doing pre-Christmas."

Thursday, 27 November 2014
Collingwood selects Darcy Moore with pick No.9 in the 2014 NAB AFL Draft.

"It's early days but it's not surprising the way he has attacked the system," Collingwood recruiter Derek Hine said.

"He has been terrific in the way he has approached earning the respect of the playing group.

"He is healthy but we have to work out whether he goes forward or back."

Wednesday, 12 November 2014
Soon-to-be Collingwood father-son draftee Darcy Moore plays down expectations ahead of his first year with the club.

"A lot of guys say they want to play in round one or play 'x' number of games for the season, but that doesn't motivate me," he said.

"I'm just here to learn. It's week one of my first pre-season."
