Not sure you can give the Swans recruiters too much credit. Last years draft was two academy players and an absolute no brainer in McDonald. Outside of that it's pretty hit and miss if you go back through their non-academy picks over the last 4-5 years (although admittedly the juries still out on some of the more recent ones).IF dogs didn’t get Treloar last year, I would do that trade too. WC should do it too.
The Swans shouldn’t do it, their current recruiter for u18 is too good, any pick he hits.
