REPORTS: Three clubs hunting Bulldog Tom Boyd

Three Melbourne clubs are reportedly considering making a move for Western Bulldogs’ forward Tom Boyd.

Other Sports News

Sportingnews.com has reported that the Bulldogs may explore their options with Boyd, after poor form and off-field issues have plagued his time at the club since joining from the Giants at the end of the 2014 season.

Carlton and Richmond are said to be the clubs most interested, while Collingwood may also make a play for the 20-year-old.

However, a big stumbling block for any club will no doubt be his huge salary, which is understood to be around $1 million per season.

“The trade price on Tom Boyd has dropped and the number one draft pick is now on offer to any club prepared to take on his million-dollar salary,” the report claims.

Boyd played nineย games at GWS after being selected with the No.1 pick in the 2013 National Draft.

He has kicked 21 goalsย in 18 gamesย with the Dogs.

    Boyd is a Well and truly over paid VFL player ……. put in in the same league as Cloke….. you guys should unload him and pick up 2 good players

  2. This is the biggest load of garbage I’ve ever read. He’s only 20! He’s signed a 7 year contract for a reason – because he’s a long term project. I guarantee everything about this story isn’t true. If it was it’d be all over the media

    • Pathetic comment, He is 20 years old 200 cm still a few years away from his best footy, has had one off feild incident and yes the contract was a lil over the top its what had to be done to get him back down south and the club had the money to make a bold move

    • It’s far from pathetic, look at hogan, he’s a good forward at a young age!
      But that’s the whole point in this that some 20 yo child can get such a contract without proving his worth!
      He has not showed any signs of being the footballer that he is expected to be!
      Franklin took years to he the big money he deserved! I can’t see this kid being a 80+ goal a year player ever!

  3. Won’t even happen. Bulldogs have only two tall key forwards, to get rid of one is stupid. He may be average at the moment. But is still only 20. Has kicked more goals in his first few games than most of the gun forwards now did. Give him a couple of more years to develop first. Hawkins took ages to do anything as well. Just a media beat up looking for a story per usual, I call BS on it being remotely true

  4. What a pack of frog shit the club would not even think anything of this IMO. Keep claim W/B fans it just won’t happen ,media crap. That’s all trying to make waves . We are getting too close for a top 4 position and a shot at the holy grail go dogs .

  5. Shaun Macdonald Hayden Ross Sam Powell Alex Giovannucci Ben Mann Jackson Morris Tom Eastick Tom Pepperell Tom Boyd is the biggest meme I’ve ever seen

    • It’s a joke article haha.
      We’d know about it you guys actually wanted him anyway. You guys are horrible at that kind of thing…it’d be in the media within minutes
