    Re: Welcome to the Westernbulldogs Adam Treloar

    How has the AFL allowed this to happen? How can a trade be approved, with players starting training and doing media appearances, without the actual details of the trade being confirmed?

    A lot of people are putting JUH in their round one teams. Assuming that he isn't ready to step straight in to our senior squad, I see Schache as the perfect replacement for him in the short term.

    Re: Trade Dunkley

    I am pretty sure that if they take two first round picks this year, they don't need to take one next year.

    So out of their four (6,7,8 2020; pick 1 2021 ;) ) they can trade two.
