Collier was a powerful centre half-back and a vital part of 'The Machine', the 1927-1930 Collingwood teams who won four premierships in a row. This feat has not been repeated to date.
Career outside VFL
At the height of the Great Depression Collier left Collingwood to coach Cananore Football Club in Tasmania, winning the Leitch Medal in 1931. He captain-coached Camberwell in the throw-pass era VFA from 1945 until 1946, earning acclaim for building and leading the team to the minor premiership and a losing Grand Final in 1946.
