So Richmond and West Coast need to use their concession picks 15 and 16 respectively as part of a trade to bring in established talent - they can't take them to the draft. Will be interesting to see who they might target.

O'Dea to us?


Former Melbourne women’s captain Elise O’Dea could be on her way to Carlton as the Demons look to reinvigorate their AFLW list.

Dual All-Australian O’Dea, 28, is contracted for the 2021 season but weighing up requesting a trade to the Blues ahead of the AFLW sign and trade period which begins on August 3.
Edit: JJoanne Doonan has been delisted as well. No doubt an issue given she probably can't back to Aus before the next season anyway, a shame.

The Blues have told Irishwoman Joanne Doonan that she will not be offered a contract for next year. Her manager Jason Hill said Carlton had originally indicated they were likely to retain Doonan but had changed their tune in recent days.

It seems like we might trade Sarah Hosking to Richmond for pick 15 and on trade that to Melbourne for O'Dea. It's a shame to see Sarah leaving as she is such a heart and soul player and I loved her ferocity out there, I think her contribution to the side extended beyond just her on field actions. But I would think that O'Dea is a more polished player and possesses leadership qualities too so it's probably an overall win.

Van Dyk is honestly not a huge loss either, and reflects that we need genuine KPDs and genuine outside runners. Guerin meets the criteria for an outside runner, but needs to refine her kicking and game sense.

If we wind up with O'Dea, Guerin and change for Van Dyk and Hosking, I'm on board with that.

Just reading her latest Instagram post, and sounds like it was a hard decision for her. Has a lot of love for the club and everyone involved. You’re right, we don’t know the circumstances so we shouldn’t judge.

But if we get O’Dea as is sounding likely, that should more than make up for this loss (as other posters have mentioned).

Yeah, it seems like she has been given an offer she couldn’t refuse by Richmond. A combination of a senior on field role and prominent off field role as well as decent coin which is fair enough. The women aren’t tossing up offers of $650,000 vs $750,000 which at the end of the day don’t make that much of a difference to quality of life when compared to an offer of $15,000 vs $45,000, which is a game changer.

Pick 36 is Victorian pick 21, so a bit of an upgrade with that third round swap.
Bit of a nothing trade for us.

Hopefully we were just trying to do the right thing by van Dyke. I actually thought she was good in patches.

I hope the talent pool runs deep enough for this trade to be worthwhile for us.

She was injured for a bit and we've got Laloifi and Wilson who take her spot anyway, she's good but wasn't going to be best 21 for us over those two and harrington.

Brooke Vernon too, and Jones is promising if she can condition her body for the standard.

We need running defenders and outside runners more than anything right now.
