Simon Phillips (Norwood)
Nathan Krakouer (Gold Coast – Free Agent)
- Gold Coast have sent Simon Phillips (pre-listed player) and pick 35 to Port Adelaide for the Krakouer Compenstation Pick (Second Round)
16, 35, 36, 52, 68, 83
Another team not doing much in trade week. They handed their compensation pick for Nathan Krakouer, a second round pick back to Gold Coast for basically the pick that would have been had they made a selection (pick 35) and Simon Phillips. Phillips after doing his under 18 footy for the Dragons in Sandringham, playing a few games for the Swans, went to the SANFL and played well for Norwood. He is said to have speed, can carry the ball and kick goals. So they get him and pick 35 for Krakouer which seems a good deal for both sides.
I am not worried by Port not being more active in the trade period. They need to start the rebuilding process and this seems to be what they have done!
But what do you think? Was there someone out there they should have been chasing? Let me know your thoughts and rate below!
