9:30 am – SET OF PIES, BULLDOGS FOR SHOWDOWN ON LIPINSKI
Collingwood reportedly aims to use a late pick to trap his next business goal.
AFL.com Reports the Magpies plan to use Pick 58, acquired from the Suns in an eight-pick trade, to acquire Patrick Lipinski from the Western Bulldogs.
The 23-year-old was offered a three-year contract by the Bulldogs before officially submitting a trade request to the Magpies at the end of the season.
While the Magpies are hoping a late pick will be enough to close the deal, the Bulldogs would like more compensation.
Lipinski, a very available midfielder with the ability to go forward and hit the scoreboard, had extended stints with the AFL Bulldogs’ squad for the past four seasons amid a few setbacks of injury before falling out of favor at the end of 2021. He only played 11 AFL games for the Bulldogs this season – two as a medical submarine and two as an unused submarine.
8:30 am – FRINGE DEE MEETS THE RAVENS
Adelaide is said to have met Melbourne’s Kade Chandler as the small striker seeks more senior opportunities.
Chandler has played six games in three seasons on Melboune’s rookie roster, but four of those games were as an unused medical replacement this season.
The Sun Herald reported On Wednesday, Crows met Chandler last week.
Adelaide is already well stocked with small forwards, including Lachie Murphy, Shane McAdam and James Rowe, while foxfooty.com.au understands that they are keeping a close eye on Josh Rachele, Murray Bushranger’s young gun.
6AM – WHAT MAKES THE ADAM CERRA AGREEMENT?
Adam Cerra’s move to Carlton appears to depend on a deal, if not a deal, between Geelong and Fremantle involving Jordan Clark.
Several outlets report that the Dockers are hoping to send Pick 25 to Geelong in exchange for the WA-born wing / defender, although they are already rejecting Pick 27.
The starting point for the Cats’ negotiations was Pick 8 and they have hinted they would like a late first-round selection for the former No.15 pick under contract.
“I am frustrated that Geelong is expecting a top pick for Jordan Clark,” Essendon legend Matthew Lloyd said. AFL Commercial Radio. “You haven’t played it, so how can you feel entitled to a top 15 pick?”
Fremantle is currently haggling with Carlton over the exact price of Cerra. The Blues will have to give up choice 6, but as reported by foxfooty.com.auTom Morris on Monday, the Dockers also hope to trade their second-round pick (27) for that of Carlton (25). They would then exchange 25 in Geelong.
Age reports Dockers also want to exchange future choices with the Blues, either by converting a fourth-round pick to a third-round pick or a third-round pick to a second-round pick.
So, as the Cerra deal goes smoothly, Dockers need to know if Geelong would agree to Pick 25 for Clark first and then be able to close the deal with Carlton.
Carlton was offered the 52 pick by West Coast in exchange for Sam Petrevski-Seton, who they could then trade to the Western Bulldogs for defenseman Lewis Young.
The Blues were hoping for more for Petrevski-Seton, the No.6 pick in the 2016 draft, but have minimal leverage as they did not offer him a contract for 2022.
