They could get Josh Jenkins for free and still have a better player

They gave up Pick 2 for Lachie Weller, delisted Jarryd Lyons, effectively delisted Jack Martin, trade Pick 27 in 2019 for Pick 11 in 2020… This doesn’t even touch it.

Tbh a lot of these kinds of deals are about the optics of senior players wanting in. Lobb is a decent but not amazing player, and that is kind of the point. All of a sudden they look like a club players want to be at.

This one makes a bit of sense.

Doubt Freo are too concerned. Extra money to re-sign Cerra, and give Treacy the mantle of the second key forward.
Yep let him go if he wants. Or you say give your first round pick or he’s not going any with 2 years left to run on contract and can still give Tracey more time to be the mane man.

32 yar old Josh Jenkins that has played 2 games in 2 years?
I stand by my comment.

I don't rate Lobb and could only see him going to GC if it was a salary dump by Freo, talk of first round picks being given for him are pie in the sky stuff

don’t think it’s much to do with a salary dump, his manager is angling for an extension and knows he won’t get the same money again.

he’s worth a 1st rounder to Freo purely due to having 2 years to run on a contract after this season. They’re not simply dumping him for nothing and I’m sure they’ll keep him if they don’t get offered what they want.

out of contract, he’s worth a mid 2nd at best.

I wouldn’t mind him since Jenkins is playing his last year, Hawkins and Stanley probably have one more & Fort is absolute garbage. Even an overrated tall is better than any 18 year old draftee

SDK should be alright in a couple years if he follows his brother's trajectory.

Fremantle arrived on the Gold Coast last night for their game with the Swans tomorrow. There's a very good chance Lobb is touring the Suns facilities today ;)

According to Lobb's manager, neither he or Lobb have courted any offers from Victorian clubs but his manager also can't guarantee he'll be playing for Fremantle next year. Sounds like we (the Suns) are knee deep in this one and just about have Lobb over the line to join us this off season.

If true, it's going to be difficult for any backline to stop the twin towers of King (202cm) and Lobb (206cm) next year.
Did you just assume Ben will be there?

Rory Lobb had ankle surgery this morning. Won't play again this year. FWIW, Peter Bell says he will be ready to go for 'our pre-season training'.

That’s a feather in his cap then
