Champion Magpie responds to being caught by Buddy on the all-time goal-kicking list

McKenna is currently ninth on the list with 874 goals, but he was joined by Lance Franklin on Saturday night and will be relegated to 10th with Buddy’s next goal.
Not that the Magpie champion is holding any grudges.

McKenna said parts of Franklin’s game remind him of another great forward, Bernie Quinlan.
