Frustrated Collingwood superstar Nick Daicos shows he’s human with an atypical loss to Brisbane

Collingwood superstar Nick Daicos proved he’s human with a rare mistake during Thursday night’s 33-point loss to Brisbane.

Daicos has produced arguably the greatest first 28 games in AFL history and emerged as one of the game’s best players.

And he could be the best value player in history.

He’s averaging over 30 touches per game this year and will likely be among the first frontrunners for the Brownlow Medal.

He started Thursday night’s clash against the Lions on Fire with 10 disposals, one goal and 173 yards gained in a brilliant first term.

The Lions chose not to tag Daicos, but put him off the ball working and frequently blocked his runs.

The extra attention seemed to frustrate the normally unflappable 20-year-old.

In the third quarter, as the Pies pushed forward, Daicos gave a free kick off the ball after knocking Charlie Cameron down.

The act left commentators stunned.

“He must be frustrated. Every time he’s off the ball he gets a little nudge,” said Luke Hodge.

Daisy Pearce added: “He’s human, thank goodness.”

“The only flaw we’ve seen from him so far,” Hodge said.

It wasn’t the quarter’s only error, either, as Daicos missed a goal from close range minutes later.

But while it looked like he’d slipped a bit, the midfielder quickly reasserted himself in the competition to show why he’s one of the best players in the league.

He seemingly took his game to a new level last season to almost single-handedly drag his side over the line as he finished with a staggering 38 touches and two goals.

But despite his exploits, Collingwood couldn’t catch the Lions and they suffered their first loss of the season.
