As I understand the 1st round rules, clubs must use 2 x 1st round picks in a 4 year period.

So, unless a club has acquired 2 x 1st round picks between 2015 and 2018 it cannot trade away it's 1st round selection for 2019.

The Pies selected Jaidyn Stephenson at No.6 in the 2017 NAB AFL Draft and will need to trigger one first-round selection in 2018 or 2019 after not taking any between 2015-16.

After trading their 2018 1st and their 2019 1st as well as possibly losing their 2nd round pick because of going into deficit matching bids for Quayner and Kelly they are in breach of the rules and will have to trade back into the 1st round without much currency.

Another price to pay for the Beams deal.

All it does is stop them trafing future picks until they have used their firsts in the draft.
And that is only if the AFL enforces it.

Hardly scary

Won’t the bombers be in danger of breaching this next year too then?

2016 - McGrath
2017 - traded first round pick to GWS (Smith)
2018 - traded first round pick to GWS (Shiel)
2019 - traded first round pick to GWS (Shiel)

Will have two second round picks next year so I guess there’s currency to trade up into it.

Agree, clubs should be allowed to grow their list creatively. Just take it out of the game so we never win another Premiership.
WTF does this have to do with Richmond? You aren't the reigning premiers so how about canning the try to make everything about Richmond thing.

It's a stupid rule with no real consequences anyway.
Agree. I can understand stopping clubs from trading picks beyond the next draft but otherwise they should be free to do as they please.
