In: Picks 11, 23, 30 and 49
Out: Pick 6 and a future third-round pick
It wasn’t a headline-grabbing exchange, but the Dockers will be confident their pick swap with Port Adelaide strengthens their hand of assets as they look to bring in both Jesse Hogan and Rory Lobb. Freo’s initial bid for Hogan was reportedly rebuffed, but there’s still plenty of time to get a deal done.
The Hawks received a boost late in the day when Chad Wingard made it known he’s looking to be in brown and gold next season. If a deal can get done, the 25-year-old can add some additional class and poise across half forward for a club that continues to regenerate on the go.
ON THE MOVE? Wingard eyes Hawks shift
In: Pick 6 and a future third-round pick
Out: Picks 11, 23, 30 and 49
Pick 6 is a boon, but the potential loss of Wingard – and the continuation of the growing saga – could hurt. Having loaded up on recruits in recent years, the Power are in win-now mode and won’t want to lose one of their most potent match-winners.
The Lions appeared blindsided by reports Dayne Beams is keen to return to Collingwood for personal reasons. It could add another dimension to the final days of their trade period action as they look to bring in Lachie Neale to bolster the midfield.
