Keane averaged 12.6 Disposals, 4.8 Marks & 0.6 Tackles in 5 career games. 

Collingwood thanked Mark for his contribution on Friday.

“We thank Mark for his contribution to the program over the past three years,” 

“Mark didn’t return for training in the New Year and we decided, along with Mark, that the rigours of AFL football combined with being away from home are too much for him at this time.

“We wish Mark all the best with his future endeavours and hope being home in Ireland is exactly what he needs.” GM of Football, Graham Wright said.
