Keeffe takes punt on NFL

Keeffe update

LACHLAN Keeffe has been reported to be interested in taking up a role as a NFL punter. Collingwood player Travis Cloke revealed Keeffe would soon be travelling to the United States.

"I know Lachie's going to go over to the States at the end of the year, I'm not sure if it's for that reason," Cloke said.

"He's a pretty nice kick and he's lost a bit of weight, too, but we'll see how he goes."

Thomas and Keeffe are currently serving a provisional suspension after testing positive to the banned substance Clenbuterol.

But Cloke went on to urge Collingwood to stick true with the pair and said he hopes they are wearing the black and white again in the near future.

"Whether it's in 12 months, two years, I'd like to see them back at the club," he said.

"We do need to remember that they're only young kids. We want to make sure they've got their life on track. Yes, they've stuffed up, but I believe you do get a second chance."
