I’m just stoked we added Lachie and still have Beams. No pressure to trade him now. If Pies don’t come with two first we keep him.

Beams, Neale, Zorko, Clugga, Berry, Rayner, now that’s starting to be some midfield!

The glass half empty in me feels like we sold the farm, a la Fev, and pandered to Freo. We now don't have a 1st round draft pick 2018/2019.. I trust Nobles and team.. maybe they don't see the depth in next years draft or that we've got enough academy players coming through. Plus Berry/Cluggers still young so would take a permanent spot so no need to draft more. Who knows.

The more positive side of me is very stoked that we got him.
You know that depth in a draft means that recruiters think potentially good players extend way down into later rounds right?
So by trading away early picks the recruiting team DO see depth next year and are backing their ability to find these players.

The Hawks done really good at this so to the Swans and the Cats
I agree picks under mid 40's worth something.. Although 18 be nice instead of 30

I havnt been a big follower of Lachies career but those highlights...Im pretty damn excited. Will free up Zorko from a tag too probably, so either Lachie or Zorks going to dominate games...

I am seeing on the draft and trading board people saying Freo got more for Neale than they payed for Hogan but I can’t see how this can be true, can anyone smarter than me break these two trades down individually? TIA.

Points wise because we got 30 back we actually lost less points to get Neale than Hogan. Very little though.

So we gave THEM Pick 6 and Pick 19 and Pick 55

They gave us Lachie, a future Second and Third round selection*Tied to Hawks


They gave Melbourne Pick 6 and Pick 23 for Jesse and a Fourth Round (65)

Yeah thought this was the case. Saw it mentioned that our pick downgrade from 19-30 was the equivalent of pick 47.

So Neale for pick 6, 47 and 55 in the end once all the pick upgrades are taken into consideration, unless I am summarising it wrong.

Are you referring to the Gold Coast trade? We gave 6, and 55 for Neale and 30.

lachies a gun the trades a win for both clubs because we secured Hogan
also their were games this year where our entire midfield apart from lachie were under 21
the fact he was able to best midfielder shows you how good he is

This trade was bittersweet for most of us Freo fans.

We lost a great player in Neale but have at long last gained the 'chosen one' in Hogan, as well as a pretty handy forward/ruck in Lobb. In the contexts of our lists, I think this was a great move for both clubs as Neale will step seamlessly straight into the void left by Beams, and we have finished setting up our spine for the next 5-10 years.

The best qualities about Lachie are that he's ultra consistent and highly durable. He's not the flashiest player but he knows how to kick a goal, and he has a knack for bringing his team mates into the game. He's also a fantastic leader and seems to be very level-headed.

I wish him all the best. Make sure that you all look after him, but don't let him get to 100 games. We want full drafting rights to his kids!
