Third day of UA – AFL trade period: Saints ‘extremely unlikely’ to hunt Treloar


Hawthorn’s interest in Collingwood winger Tom Phillips is genuine with the lasting Magpie exploring his options The 24-year-old’s 70-game streak ended in round 15 when he injured his hamstrings, 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 Magpie accepting the terms of the contract. Hawthorn and the good business deal 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 »

Here are some interesting thoughts from Fremantle’s General Manager of Football Peter Bell, especially regarding Jesse Hogan leaving Dockers for GWS

« At the start of the year we thought it would’ve been David (Mundy) last year But he played so well, he was exceptional Over the next few days we will come to an arrangement for him to can play, ”Bell told AFL Trade Radio today.

« Without having absolute clarity on the size of the rosters it was really frustrating But when we transferred Jesse to GWS it opened up the place for Dave

« We gave up some very valuable choices for Jesse (Hogan) It didn’t work out and we wish Jesse all the best

« You think about these circumstances a lot, especially since we gave up on those draft picks It’s a resource for the whole club to get the most out of Jesse and we think we gave our best shot We believe we have supported Jesse to the best of our ability « 

Collingwood’s Mark Keane recently signed for two years with the Magpies, but his love of Gaelic football remains intact Irish media report the 20-year-old was named to the Cork bench ahead of Sunday’s semi-final vs. Kerry after receiving permission from the Magpies to play The Mitchelstown boy played a game for Collingwood in 2020 – against Fremantle in the ninth round – after showing promise in the preseason
