    Mark Stevens on RSN this morning said we're heavily into Zak Jones.

    I'd much prefer Zak Jones over johannisen - younger, more hunger/ambition, less dollars and more room for improvement. The buddy and Tippett deals were always going to hurt the swans at some point.

    Zaharakis straight swap for Jones??

    I'd do that.

    More like they'll sign Zaharakis for free then we'll trade said pick for Jones.

    Wouldn't that mean they get Zaka AND a reasonable (2nd-3rd) pick for jones?
    No thanks, Not at that price

    If they're going to get Zaharakis it'll be for north of 600k (given Norf are apparently offering similar) and end up being an end of 1st round IMO.

    They need outside run, I don't see why they wouldn't be interested.

    Why trade for a player when you can get him for free?

    I was under the impression that Zac may be forced out of Sydney due to salary cap constraints.

    Not sure why they would replace him with Zaka who is a worse player, older and more expensive!

    If Sydney are forcing guys out due to salary pressure, no way they sign Zaka for 600k. Signing jones up for 60% of that would be a better deal for them

    And still, trading that pick for jones would mean jones for Zaka and a first rounder.

    Again. Pass.

    My point being; if they wanted Zaharakis they'd have to offer him similar money to Norf.

    2nd round most likely, with the potential for end of 1st round. none of this la la land where the blues think they'll get band 1 compo for Kreuzer if he was to leave.

    Love the idea of Zac Jones. We've really missed Hibberd this year and I can see him playing a similar role in the backline.
    Got a real bit of mongrel about him.

    Depends on how much coin, contract length etc.

    If it's 650k x4 it'll be band 2 (pick 19).

    No doubt he could but I just see so much of Hibberd when I watch him play. I'd love to see his hard running out of the back line.

    I'd be all over letting him walk if the season finished tomorrow, Zaha is 27? Scope for improvement is pretty much gone. Hasn't been able to build on a career year from last season. See where he ends up at the end of the year. If we want to make serious Improvements to our list you have to make calls on guys like him.
