THOUGHTS

The Blues were one of the most active teams in trade week and the that was with a number of players requesting trades and not getting them. Names that came up

were Brett Thorton who seems to be out of favor as not being in the long term defenesive plans at the Blues. The other big name was Andrew Walker. It was well reported that Walker and Carlton coach, Brett Ratten had had a fulling out but with no trade forth coming for him, the player and coach reportedly got together and agreed to walk on the relationship for the good of the team. Of course, with 1 year left on Walkers contract, this dispute puts Walkers name up as a potential target for Sheeds and the Greater Western Sydney Giants (if you believe the rumors on their potential name). Time will tell if the relationship improves and if the Blues can lock up his signature!

Another disgruntal player, Shaun Griggs did manager to get to the team of his choice. His was one of the first trades done being a straight player for player swap with the Tigers for Andrew Collins. Similar size, similar ages, Griggs a little more experinced, this seems like a good trade for both players and both teams. Griggs gets the new start that he was after, Collins gets brought in to a team contending for finals births (if not the top four or better) that specifically asked for him, suggesting that the Blues liked the kid and already have plans for him!

The Blues developed a deep core of Rucks (Kruezer, Hampson, Jacobs and Warrnock) which meant that they were always likely to lose one who was looking for a fresh start with a team that had more playing time for them and it turned out that Sam Jacobs was lured home by the Crows. So with him already asking to be traded, the Blues did reasonable job in getting a 2nd and 4th pick for him, giving them more flexibility. The draft picks would have also helped in the landing of Jeremy Laidler. Laidler cam a across to the Blues in search of more opportunities and you would think that he would get it in spades, especially after his fine showings for the classy Cats in the few chances that he was allowed. Laider’s departure was seen as another kick in the pants as he was seen the future in the backline. Its unclear if the talk that Vetern Cat Darren Milburn signing on for another year was further proof to Laidler  that he was better off looking for chances to play else where then the Cattery. These things happen when your team is as successful as the cats but there loss is the Blues gain. He could be a very nice upgrade with a lot of upside when compared to the all but discarded Thorton.

So no huge fish for the Blues, but got a couple of nice pick ups, some earlier picks and all for players that didn’t want to be there anyway. I think that was a good result for the Blues without being specular. But most importantly, how do you rate the Blues Trade Week performance?

Comments

  1. Personally, as a Blues man, I’d have preferred the Blues to get something more for big Sam Jacobs. A couple of draft picks is okay, but not great for a potential first string ruckman, whilst he may prove to be a tad one dimensional – only time will tell.

    I like the Collins & Grigg swap. It seems both clubs got something they needed, although most people seem to think the Blues got the better end of the deal.

    Finally – if Walker, Thornton & Setenta don’t want to be at the club, I’d have preferred they be moved, but perhaps there wasn’t sufficient interest from other clubs. Happy that Walker has stayed on, I’d expect a big season from him.

    Another good wrap-up Molly.
