Henry is the brother of Geelong premiership defender Jack and has significant ties to the Geelong area, having gone to high school at St Joseph’s College in Geelong, before playing for the Geelong Falcons in the NAB League.
Collingwood had tabled a contract offer to Henry, who is currently out of contract, and is likely to drive a hard bargain for a player who many experts around the league rate highly.
“I wonder how that works, you probably don’t announce your intentions unless both clubs have had discussions and they think it can play out,” former Geelong defender Brenton Sanderson said on AFL Trade Radio of Henry’s request.
