O’Brien more likely. Doesn’t play a similar role to Cuningham.
Agree. LOB plays that selfless role of running wingman on the fat side. Not sure he’s great at it, but Newnes is an instant improvement.

Still waiting to see what role Cuningham can play at the level.

ZJones is a bullet. Nutter rackles hard runs hard and has kicked some amazing goals.

You don’t play 123 consecutive games of AFL ( a club record btw) and spend time in the leadership group if you are no good/a plodder.
Something off in the water at the Saints.
Bargain buy for us.

Free hit. At worse adds some leadership to our young group within NB. Laughing - even if we delist in a year. Nothing to lose.

Well you do if you’re one of Richo’s favourites.....and they’re both gone, funny that!

Still, I had no problem with Newnes, GOP but nice guy. Just really plateaued in the last two years. Hope he does well for you in a new environment.

Zac Jones is what St Kilda need, and he’s got a supreme point of difference with his speed, but his footy IQ is just so-so and he’s got a tendency to make some shocking decisions.

I think he’s an upgrade in terms of his game style will benefit St Kilda, but I think Newnes is a better player overall.

Decent result getting him for free, than having to sacrifice draft picks ala Jones, too. Contrasts the mentality of each list manager.

im sorry what?

you think Newnes is better than Zac Jones??

BWWWHAAAHAHAHAHAHA

far out thats a ridiculous comment.
Jones - faster harder goal scorer brwak lines

Newnes??? you think he has footy iq???
LOL wait for it bro.
The only thing newnes can do is run all day. But he does that slowly, with terrible decisions. Plus hes soft.

omg jones is so much better. please bro stop with the BS

You do if your soft and run slowly on the outside. Never will do a hamstring cause he doesnt sprint. Everyone MOANED at his selection bar richo.

You have got an endurance beast with 0 footy brain who doesnt break lines.

Has a booming kick and will kick a big long goal every 4th week when by self no pressure BUT otherwise will boot it from defensive wing to 50m line straight to opponent. every. *******. time.

- these are HIGHLIGHTS at newnes best

not one breaking line
not one decent tackle
includes him passing it to players cause thats rare for him
most are soft outside opportunistic goals.

NO getting his own ball.
NO doing anything of great importance.

Something off? We landed all of our trade targets. Carlton should try it.

Newnes has struggled the past few years.

Why does it have to be a competition? Both sides got players they were aiming to get and hopefully they both give great service to their respective clubs. It's irrelevant who's better as they weren't direct trade swaps and we don't need to find a victor of a trade...

On a side note: I would have thought a player who has played 150 games and is a life member of a football club wouldn't be treated with such vitriol. It's fine to assess a players deficiencies but also pay credit where it's due.

Neither of these guys are necessarily lethal by hand or foot, so stats do tell part of the story...err...bro. Very similar over their careers, with Newnes finding a little more ball, averaging a few more goals and goal assists.

Jones appears to run a bit harder and straighter, ranks a few pegs higher in metres gained. Certainly nothing to suggest one is vastly superior to the other.

Only difference is Newnes is coming off a down year, Jones likely had his best.
