  3. Re: Welcome to the Western Bulldogs Riley Garcia

    Where do they think he would have gone if not for the ACL? I did hear them say he probably only just missed AA. Could be one of the steals of the draft.

    Re: Other club trade talk

    There have been some bold plays by teams to get up the draft order.

    Is there a target you would be willing to trade up for if it meant our pick 13 and our 2020 first-rounder? Maybe a player that...

    Mitch O’Neill is apparently another Bulldog supporting Draft nomination. A PCL ended his year early, but apparently showed a lot of promise. Could be around at pick 53.

    If all goes to plan the difference between these picks will be minimal, with the Crows likely to drop like a lead balloon and our mob hopefully getting right to the pointy end.

    Totally agree with this. The first four or five games is critical, they absolutely must get some wins on the board. If they can do that, they could have a year like us in 2015.
