Delisted AFL players get new starts

COLLINGWOOD and North Melbourne will have just two picks each at this month's national draft after signing delisted players yesterday.

The Magpies swooped on former Adelaide and Sydney defender Tony Armstrong, who represented Australia in the recent International Rules Series in Ireland.

The 24-year-old has played 29 games with the Crows and Swans and becomes Collingwood's fourth mature-age signing in the off-season, joining Jesse White (Sydney), Taylor Adams (GWS) and Patrick Karnezis (Brisbane). The Magpies have picks six and 10 at the November 21 draft.

The Kangaroos go into the draft with selections 30 and 47 (they have committed pick No.8 to father-son prospect Luke McDonald), after signing delisted Richmond forward Robin Nahas.

Nahas kicked 100 goals in 83 games for the Tigers and was seen as an obvious target after North missed out on former Blues goalsneak Eddie Betts who signed with Adelaide.

The other delisted player to get a lifeline yesterday was former Western Bulldogs utility Dylan Addison who agreed to a one-year deal with GWS.
