One Moore chance? Swingman in Pies squad

Darcy Moore is in the Magpies squad for the clash with West Coast

TALENTED swingman Darcy Moore will be named in the squad to face West Coast at the MCG on Sunday while spring-heeled forward Will Hoskin-Elliott will be given until the last minute to prove his fitness.

Hoskin-Elliott suffered bone bruising in his right leg against Essendon, and while he played through the injury the club initially feared he would miss up to a fortnight.

However, he trained at the Holden Centre on Sunday and will be named in a squad of 26 on Thursday that will also include Callum Brown, Travis Varcoe, Adam Oxley and Sam Murray.

“The likelihood is he (Hoskin-Elliott) will play, but we’ll run that all the way to the line if we need to,” Buckley said.

Meanwhile, tall forward Mason Cox had a light session, but Buckley had no doubts the American forward would be fit.

“Coxy had a bit of a run around and we gave him a light session. We have our last session on Saturday, going into Sunday, so he’ll be right for that,” Buckley said.
