Coach Jock McHale
The team was originally made up of 21 players, with three on the interchange bench, in accordance with the size of AFL teams in 1997. In 1998, the league extended the interchange to four players. As a result, Gavin Brown was added to the interchange in 2002.
It features 22 of Australian Football's greatest ever players. Syd Coventry, who led each of the four premiership teams between 1927 and 1930, was named as captain and Jock McHale was the logical choice as coach.
The team played a total of 4796 matches, and includes seven of Collingwood's nine Brownlow Medalists. 13 of the 22 selected were club captains, and 16 played in at least one premiership side
