Day three of UA – AFL trade period: Bulldogs are ‘blinded’ by Dunkley trade demand


The Western Bulldogs struck off three – Billy Gowers, Fergus Greene and Brad Lynch Gowers played 33 games for the club while Lynch battled persistent soft tissue injuries to play nine games Greene played five matches in 2018

Western Bulldogs admit they were ‘blinded’ by Josh Dunkley’s interest and willingness to be traded to Essendon

However, club roster Sam Power said they had so far only had « low-level » discussions with the Bombers over any potential trade.

« Our priority is to keep Josh Dunkley we have to be open to different situations given that he said he wanted to go to Essendon but our preference is to keep him, » Power told AFL Trade Radio. / p>

« I’ve had a few conversations with (Essendon’s hiring manager) Adrian Dodoro, but at this point they’ve been very low-level discussions »

Power said Dunkley has been a key part of the club’s plans and the midfielder’s contract was extended midway through last season

– We appreciate Josh He’s part of our management group and someone we see as an integral part, and someone that we plan to be an integral part (of the club) in the futureâ ??? ?

If Dunkley runs more time in the middle at Tullamarine, Power has said that they anticipate that opportunity will come to Whitten Oval as well.

« I’ve had a few conversations with Josh over the past two weeks, and Bevo (trainer Luke Beveridge) has also

– We see Josh as an indoor midfielder Those opportunities he somehow thinks Essendon could offer On our side, we know that we can offer Josh these similar opportunities

Hawthorn’s interest in Collingwood winger Tom Phillips is genuine with the enduring Magpie exploring his options The 24-year-old’s 70-game streak ended in round 15 when he left has a hamstring injury, forcing him to miss the final series, but he stands as a logical replacement for Isaac Smith and Ricky Henderson Any deal would be contingent upon the Hawks and the contracted Magpie accepting Hawthorn’s terms and good commercial agreement between the two clubs Phillips was almost traded to Geelong last season but fell back to the prospect

Well, St Kilda effectively closed the door on that one, telling everyone to avoid any « false hope »

« It is extremely unlikely that we are chasing Adam Treloar We wouldn’t even want to meet him, we don’t want to give anyone false hope, » James Gallagher, head of recruitment and roster, told AFL Trade Radio on Friday. St Kilda

Gallagher also made some eye-catching comments on the decision to bring former Crow Brad Crouch to the Saints during a free agency – which, by the way, ends today

« We were reasonably relieved that the Brad Crouch deal was done on a free agency basis, » said Gallagher « There was a real possibility that we would have pulled out of this deal if the Crows matched , we had no intention of negotiating for him »
