What’s the benefit to both clubs of this trade?
Collingwood obviously have something in mind - maybe the Crows are looking for another first next year for pick 28!Collingwood are back in every round of the 2020 draft now so they could trade their first round pick if they want to. Not sure if that's a driving factor though.
Works really well with us only having 4 open list spots at the moment I think. We cant use all the picks and if the last couple are tied up with academy/re-drafting delisted players then 48 would have been wasted. Works well all round.Good value for Brisbane, although I suppose we'll take a deficit into next year if we match an academy bid. The extra first and second means it shouldn't matter much though.
You’re death riding Saints (Aish-Hill deal).Works really well with us only having 4 open list spots at the moment I think. We cant use all the picks and if the last couple are tied up with academy/re-drafting delisted players then 48 would have been wasted. Works well all round.
Plus we get to death-ride Collingwood again.
Collingwood's social media manager on instagram or the official AFL House communication? Which one should I trust?
"Basically, we have brought in another pick to work with this year but not at any significant cost to our draft position next year given we have a future second from St Kilda in 2020," Collingwood list manager Ned Guy said.
From the quote I’d say the pick given here is the future 2nd round pick attached to Pies finishing position. Guy is quoted as saying we still have the 2nd rounder attached to the Saints.Any update on which picks it is?
Probably right. Don’t see why we would give up Saints 2nd.They traded their own picks. The post from the Collingwood social media team doesn't contradict this, all they said was that they have a second rounder from St Kilda as part of the deal that got Aish to Fremantle, which is true. They're not saying that they traded it.
AFL House, Ned Guy and the AFL website's draft order tracker all say that Collingwood still have St Kilda's round 2 and round 4 picks, as well as Brisbane's 3rd rounder in 2020, and Brisbane has Collingwood's second rounder.
If they finish in the same place they did this year then those picks will be 34 and 51. The points value of 51 and 48 combined is very similar to pick 34, and a long way off the value of 24 (St Kilda's second rounder if they finish in the same spot).
Overall there's very little reason to think they traded anything other than their own picks.
