Nick Daicos last week became the quickest player – in 59 games – to reach the 30-disposal mark against every team in the competition with his brilliant outing against the Western Bulldogs. He also set a new mark for the most first possessions ever in a game (25), the most clearances by a Collingwood player (16) and the most contested possessions by a Collingwood player (27).

His tally of 47 votes in the AFL Coaches Association’s player of the year award from round eight to 12 also equalled Dustin Martin’s level for the most in a unique five-game span of any player.
