Dayne Beams is a Collingwood player again.
The long-mooted trade finally got done in the last half hour of the trade period, with pick 18, the Pies’ 2019 first round pick and pick 56 going Brisbane’s way in exchange for the ex-Lions skipper.

Beams’s future had been up in the air since May, when Tom Browne reported that Beams was interested in a return to Victoria.
