Rabble Rabble Rabble.

I might hold fire on this one for the time being. If he comes in and is best 22 that deal is worth it, but let’s just wait and see how other deals look.

For instance that probably spells the end of Ramma and if he goes to WC with a future 3rd for one of those picks from GC or WC’s future 2nd it isn’t a bad result.

I agree with everyone else here. How we let a 2nd rounder in the 2018 draft be part of a deal involving a category B rookie is beyond me.
That will probably be a pick in the early to mid twenties. Lets hope Ned Guy can do a substantially better job of negotiating than our current crop can.

Certainly not Sam's fault we suck at trades these days.

Welcome Muzza. Looking forward to seeing what he can provide. Backing him to be in our 22 come round 1.

We can't surely have just plucked his name out of a hat. Seems like the sort of player we've been tracking. You don't chase someone else's rookie for no reason.

Always great to get some young blokes into the side, but does this trade really fulfil a need?

Shaz, Smith, Langdon, Maynard, Crisp, Sinclair, Oxley, Ramsay, surely we have enough medium/small players on our list in our back half.

Feel as though we have other holes in our list that should be prioritised, particularly when the bloke we bring in can’t get a game...

Is there any other teams?
Using 2017 draft positions, I think we just traded:

Pick 23 (815 points) for
Pick 48 (302 points) and pick 70 (39 points)

Putting Murray's value at 474 points, or pick 37. Is that right? If so, what a nightmare.

WHY ARE WE SO BAD AT THIS?
Welcome Sam (provides something we lack in pace out of defence) but wow that deal looks really poor for us on the basis of that above points calculation.

The only way it looks better is if we finish near the top and Sydney fall away (bridging the gap between our future 2nd and their future 3rd). Unlikely!

Yep that's the only upside. If Sydney really struggle and we dominate, this trade looks ok. Otherwise, meh.

Good luck to the kid though, can't complain about adding more pace to the team but FFS, we've paid overs.

It does. The kid has wheels and is definitely a different piece to the puzzle.

The same need that Saad would've filled.

I'd back him to become a better player than Saad.

Wtf who is charge of list management. ******* 2nd rounder in an awesome draft for a ******* Sydney rookie. Insanity.

I simply cannot fathom who does these deals. Should have been 4th round at best.
