who did we have to give up to grab him? would have been nice with he and polly on either wings!
Wingard for Burton and pick we used on Duursma. Looking like a good result for us so far. But yes it's only a 2 game sample size.
It was a three-party trade. In brief:
Out: Chad Wingard, pick #6 (Ben King), Hawk's pick #35 (Tom Berry), and two 2019 third round pick (Port and Freo);
In: Ryan Burton, Sam Mayes, Brisbane's pick #5 (Connor Rozee), Hawks' pick #18 (Xavier Duursma), and Hawks' 2019 fourth round.

It looks fair to me.

Technically yes but the layman will simply rate it as Wingard for Burton and Duursma.

Great how he was composed in front of goal, and I don't think anyone would bemoan him after last week.

I was thinking who he reminded me of, a first year Nat Fyfe is pretty close in terms of both body type and movement.

Does a lot of very good things. Ball in hand, running towards goal, he is terrific. But there were 3-4 occasions tonight, where he looked timid and tentative. He must also learn to stick his tackles.
Am I the only one not seeing this? Jesus this kid has pretty much done all that's asked of him yet there's posters who are at the ready to bring up the negatives after every game this year. Bounced back well after last week against the reigning premiers at their home deck.

Yep. There’s a **** load to like about him. Developing nicely. Again he covered more ground than anyone last night.

Honestly I think it's the most lopsided trade we have ever done in our favour.

Jay Schulz for Mitch Farmer was a pretty good one. Matthew Bode for pick 12 (Shaun Burgoyne) was pretty handy as well.
