Surely package up those picks with 38 and get something a bit better? Not sure what worth they have otherwise

Disregard, I see were giving up 38* too. That's a shit deal imo

Must be pretty confident that we can trade in some future picks if we're letting that F2nd go.

Not overly concerned about the second pick next year, there’s a lot of water to go under the bridge before then, we could get it back by then.

The club identified the player and got him to the club.
Welcome Callum , I trust the clubs judgement and the deal is what it is.
In reality we will all forget the deal when you are high giving your deeds next year.
Another piece of the puzzle, I’m going to enjoy this.

I resent those that went to an oppo board to threaten something that they had no control over. Look at what you've done~!

Welcome CCJ - looking forward to seeing you in the bounding blue and white.

I thought and posted he should be worth a future 2nd or 20 this year but you get 26 or 28 back. I also posted a bunch of crap at various posters who came over to Tigerland, which was just banter. I'm surprised we got a future 2nd and 38 for picks we were only going to use to package up and trade out.

Despite all the crap written, I believe CCJ has promise. Good hands, decent kick (even though his action doesn't look super fluid - he kicks straight most of the time) and doesn't mind crashing a pack. I think you could play him as a forward ruck to start as he looks more comfortable down forward than in the ruck but so do many young rucks early in their career. From Tigers perspective I think of Benny Gale and Brad Ottens who both started forward before playing their best in the ruck.

Anyway, it's done now. if the picks were based on 2021 position then it probably favours us but 2022 is a different year and you guys look to be on the improve. I look forward to being at the footy in 2022 and yelling at CCJ that he still owes us 100k and probably booing him the first time he gets it before shutting up as he kicks his third.

Alright, have a good one and thank you for trading Tarrant as part of it rather than rooting up our FA compo for Chol.
