    Riverina recruit Jacob Townsend made his AFL debut in Round 1, 2012 and played 11 games for the GIANTS in his first AFL season. Originally from Leeton, Townsend joined the GIANTS under the club’s zoning concessions and has been part of the club since its inauguration in 2010. Townsend was awarded the Coaches Award at the 2012 Kevin Sheedy Medal for his fearless attack on the footy.

    If they were offering him a contract but gave him up for a pick they aren't going to use then it may be a return for helping make Collingwood pay so highly for Treloar

    I know nothing about this guy but if it's for a fourth round pick, that's fine with me!

    Do not know much about the bloke, however the way some have described him makes me a bit happy he is at the Club.

    They will use their picks since they can package them for points to bid on academy players

    After all the compensation picks, our 4th rounder won't be until 70 so that could be right
    Not sure how we'd get Andrew Moore across then, unless we look to pick him up in the PSD

    Haha, so we traded Pick 70 for Townsend and got Pick 120 back in return.
    Not sure what the point of that was given any picks around there will be used for rookie upgrades
