Fremantle can confirm the following trade requests for the upcoming 2022 Continental Tyres AFL Trade Period
North Melbourne has held off Richmond’s strong interest to win a commitment from Griffin Logue, who has officially asked to become a Kangaroo.
Logue requested a trade to North in his exit meeting on Thursday despite teammates trying at the weekend to convince him to stay.
He found himself out of the Dockers’ senior side on occasion this year – given the club’s defensive depth – then was used as a forward for much of the second half, but has played his best football down back.
Logue is an ideal fit for new coach Alastair Clarkson’s Roos, who desperately needed more support for Ben McKay, an intercept specialist also tasked with minding the best opposition forward.
The trade request to the Kangaroos gives Logue’s management firm, Corporate Sports Australia, significant leverage in talks with Fremantle.
