“Whether it’s pick four, five, six or whatever (the Giants’ future pick) ends up, we didn’t overpay for Adam Treloar.

“He’s going to be a great player for this footy club over the next 10 years.

“We gave up two first-round draft picks and got a second-round draft pick back (and) I think over the course of time that’ll prove to be an astute trade.

“If you look at most of our trades individually, they’ve been astute, but we’ve just got to … get maximum performance out of them.

“I’ve got no fears about where we’re set up in that regard. A lot of our equity is in our list, not outside of it.”

    • A guy his size and experience I think he’s been very ordinary all year. He’s been ok compares to the crap he dished up for the first half dozen games, but he is still very ordinary and dosent put enough defensive pressure when he dosent have the ball.

  1. Bullshit bucks!!! You gave up your first round pick for a bloke who hasn’t improved your midfield! Despite your injuries you’ve had your best midfield in, although Adams has been out the last two weeks!!!

  2. Not sure how anyone can actually think we paid overs seeing he will most probably go onto winning the Copeland and make the All Australian team… I’d take that for two first rounders…
