Really cheap all things considered. If we do elevate Smith with our final pick then it doesn't matter where that pick ends up so it was a pick that we weren't going to use and a pick we wouldn't have been bothered about losing for a player and a future pick that we might use and we might not.

Should be a good player for Footscray. Not AFL quality but an upgrade on Honeychurch from what I've been told.

Gonna be a great pick up for your club, we've argued on the Freo board for years that Hayden hasn't been able to unlock his full potential under Ross, maybe now he'll hang onto one of his massive marks he's been attempting every time he gets an opportunity. Looking forward to watching him play for a quick team who'll know how to use him properly :thumbsu:

Western Bulldogs have secured versatile utility Hayden Crozier.


The Western Bulldogs have secured versatile utility Hayden Crozier after a deal was reached with Fremantle Football Club today.

23-year-old Crozier joins the club after six seasons at Fremantle.

In exchange for Crozier, Fremantle will receive picks 40 and 82. The Western Bulldogs also secured Fremantle’s future fourth round pick as part of the deal.

The versatile Victorian played 69 games for Fremantle, he kicked 13 goals from 19 matches this season.

Speaking to westernbulldogs.com.au, Bulldogs List Manager Jason McCartney said Crozier’s athleticism allows him to play at both ends of the ground.

“Hayden’s got a great athletic profile, which will allow us the flexibility to play him back, forward or wing, with his aerial game a particular strength," he said.

We see him primarily at half back which, with the retirements of Bob Murphy and Matthew Boyd this season, will help our defence transition in 2018 and beyond.

“It’s a great result, securing Fremantle’s future fourth round pick enables us flexibility around draft value index points in the future.”
Interesting, thought he may have been earmarked for a forward half role.

The former Eastern Ranges player debuted in Round 10 2012 against Adelaide after being taken with the 20th pick of the 2011 NAB AFL Draft.

"Not AFL quality" He's had all the flare drained out of him by Ross, needs a change of scenery but comments like yours are misinformed and stupid.
No one cares what you think mate. He's one of us now so I can say what I like about him and I'm pre-emptively declaring him our new whipping boy.

Ok so i was right when i said his half back game may well have really made Bevo look twice. Interesting.

Hasn’t really put it all together yet but I’m happy to take the risk on him. I thought he played pretty well at half back last year as well, so I think he has enough versatility to fill a role at either half forward or half back.

Half back...**** me.
Last year we played him off halfback and he flourished. For whatever reason, he had the whole pre season working as a halfback and as the season began we swapped him forward. Think he's best suited to a Jeremy Howe sort of role as his marking and skills are quite good. Does have a great goal sense though so half forward is always an option.
