As expected day 2 of trade week was much quieter than day 1, although still more eventful than in previous years. Three trades were agreed to on the second day of trade week. Continue reading for a full wrap.
The Western Bulldogs came to an agreement with the Swans which will see Barry Hall join the Bulldogs in 2010 for the Dogs 3rd round draft pick, #47 overall. The deal is yet to be finalised though and both clubs will also exchange a late draft pick later in the week.
Andrew Lovett surprised a few when he was traded to this years runners up in St Kilda. Reports suggest that Lovett had better offers by up to 3 other clubs but decided on St Kilda to follow his dream of winning a premiership. St Kilda parted way with their first round pick, #16, in a straight swap for Lovett.
The other deal done was a minor one. Sydney traded pick #47 to the Brisbane Lions for pick #39. It appears as though the trade was an addition to yesterdays 3-way trade which included the West Coast Eagles. It’s unknown as to why the trade was made today.
Other than that there hasn’t been a lot of trade news to come out of day two. Brendan Fevola doesn’t seem to be getting many bites. Collingwood and Sydney remain the favourites to secure the forward.
The Hawks said that Darren Jolly wasn’t on their radar as of yet but will look into trading for a ruckman later this week. There have been no updates regarding the Shaun Burgoyne trade, it’s believed Hawthorn offered Port Adelaide pick #9.
Luke Ball officially requested a trade to Collingwood last night. No updates have come out since then. The Pies are also believed to be chasing Darren Jolly from the Swans.
Brian Lake has yet to sign a 4-year-deal with the Dogs but is expected to do so in coming days.
