Jack Ginnivan and Isaac Quaynor TikTok video leaves Collingwood in crisis
UPDATE: Collingwood youngsters Jack Ginnivan and Isaac Quaynor have released a sheepish apology after attracting controversy with a TikTok video.
A post on the social media platform emerged of the two young stars rating women, as the club was also dealing with the fallout from Jordan De Goey’s Bali trip.
In the video, which has since been deleted, Ginnivan and Quaynor are shown apparently lying in bed, laughing while discussing women and rating them.

“She’s a two, but she smells really nice,” Ginnivan says in the video.
Quaynor: “Three. She’s a 10, but got some … teeth, like them teeth are going every which way, diagonal, everything.”
In another part of the video, Quaynor says: “She’s a nine-and-a-half, but is homeless.”
Collingwood later tweeted a video of the two players apologising. The club has not sanctioned the pair.
“We did a trend that we did not think about before posting,” Quaynor said.
“We’re really sorry for making the mistake of participating in it and then posting it.
“We’ve since realised it isn’t acceptable, and it doesn’t align with the values that both of us hold.”
Collingwood in crisis
Leading AFL journalist Caroline Wilson said on Nine’s Footy Classified that the Magpies had told the players to delete the video, which appears to be part of a viral TikTok game where ratings are given out of 10.
Essendon legend Matthew Lloyd said the video was a bad look for the pair.
“It’s embarrassing to watch, isn’t it,” he said.
“You’re cringing just watching it.
“They’ll learn from that, those two. I’m not sure what the ramifications will be but it’s embarrassing.”
Senior football writer for the Age, Michael Gleeson, told Today the players should have known better.
“Never underestimate footballers’ ability to embarrass you, and to embarrass themselves and the club,” he said.
“They haven’t helped De Goey in how the club handles his situation, because you can’t disentangle the two issues.”
The Magpies announced a suspended $25,000 fine for De Goey after videos emerged of him partying in Bali. In one of the videos he pulls a woman’s top down.
