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!

10. Jared Polec (North Melbourne)

The former Power wingman was one of Port Adelaide’s best in 2018, averaging career-best numbers. When North Melbourne came knocking at the left-footers door with big money, it was hard seeing him stay at Alberton. There are a lot of expectations on Polec for season 2019 and we’re expecting big things.
