The 2018 trade period was one to remember – co-captains flew from the coup, stars left for big money and as always, players were traded back to their home-state.

But which stars are we most looking forward to watching in season 2019?

We take a look at the top 10 recruits that are set to light up the stage!


11. Honourable mentions

It wouldn’t be a top 10 without some honourable mentions. The following names will all be sure to provide their teams with skills in areas they have been lacking in. However, we aren’t going crazy over any of these guys.

Alex Fasolo (Carl), Reece Conca (Freo), Travis Colyer (Freo), Luke Dahlhaus (Geel), Tom Scully (Haw), Jasper Pittard (North), Aaron Hall (North), Scott Lycett (Port), Ryan Burton (Port), Dan Hannebery (St Kilda), Dean Kent (St Kilda), Sam Lloyd (WB).
