Collingwood youngster Jordan De Goey will miss at least the first six weeks of the season – and probably more – after receiving a three-week club ban to come into effect only after the hand he broke in a bar fight and lied about has repaired.

It has emerged that the Collingwood players had agreed on Friday that a week out from their first game it would be wise not to drink on the weekend. Only hours later De Goey got in a fight in a St Kilda bar and broke his hand.

He initially told the club an implausible story of a freak injury while playing with his dog and hitting his hand on a door knob, but late on Monday he finally contacted the club to come clean about the real cause of the injury.

De Goey asked for a meeting with coach Nathan Buckley and football manager Geoff Walsh because he had to correct the story he gave them and to deal with the consequences of having lied to them and embarrassing Buckley by having him publicly defend him with the flimsy alibi.

De Goey, a top-10 draft pick, admitted to Buckley and Walsh at Tuesday’s meeting that he had made up the dog story but was adamant he had not been drinking. iFrameResize({resizedCallback : function(messageData){}},’#pez_iframe_afl_video’);

De Goey, who turned 21 last week, told the club that while his friends were drinking on Friday night he had not been when he got in a fight and broke his hand.

“He was with mates and they were drinking but he was not. He had plenty of time to change that story if it was not true and he is adamant he was not drinking,” Walsh said. Well here I was thinking the ratpack was done and dusted at the pies…#warmstheheart??? Dane Swan (@swandane) March 21, 2017
