The AFL’s silly season has come and gone in a flash, with more player movement than we have ever seen before. Let’s recap the trade period and see just how well your club did.
In: Marcus Adams, Lincoln McCarthy, Lachie Neale, picks 18, 30, 35, 56, 78, 2019 first-round pick, 2019 second-round pick, 2019 third-round pick
Out: Dayne Beams, Sam Mayes, picks 5, 24, 43, 62, 80, 2019 first-round pick
Best deal: Pick 6, 19 and third-round selection to Fremantle in exchange for Lachie Neale and pick 30
The Lions got their man in Dockers star Lachie Neale and were mere minutes away from boasting potentially the best midfield in the entire competition, before allowing Dayne Beams to head back to Collingwood in the dying minutes of the trade period. Experienced players such as Lincoln McCarthy and Marcus Adams will help the depth of the team as they look to surge up the ladder.
