As it happened: AFL trade period, day five

Thanks for joining us today. We finally saw some more trades go through, but the big names are still in limbo. The live blog will be back again from 9am on Monday (and every day until trade period closes on Wednesday night), but in the meantime, make sure you head to theage.com.au/afl for all the latest news and analysis. The blog might be stopping, but the news won’t!

We’ll also have a new podcast episode wrapping the day later this evening, which you can find by searching The Age Real Footy” wherever you get your podcasts.

See you next week!

The first week of trade period is just about wrapped up. Here’s everything you need to know in trades that has happened today:

  • Sam Frost has moved from Melbourne to Hawthorn. The defender heads to Waverley along with picks 42, 61 and a future fourth-round pick. Melbourne get pick 50 and Hawthorn’s future second-round pick.
  • Ed Langdon has joined the Demons. Fremantle get picks 22 and 79, plus a future second-round pick. The Demons get Langdon, pick 26 and a future fourth-round pick.
  • West Coast and Brisbane have done a pick swap. The Eagles sent picks 52 and 64 to the Lions in exchange for picks 46 and 91. After landing Tim Kelly from Geelong, the Eagles are attempting to creep higher up the draft order, once step at a time.
  • Earlier this morning, Essendon list manager Adrian Dodoro once again made it clear that the Bombers do not want to trade Joe Daniher. But he has left the door open for the Swans to make the Dons an offer they can’t refuse. Dodoro told Trade Radio on Friday it was virtually impossible to replace Daniher during this year’s exchange period, which made the 25-year-old forward’s value, in his view, even higher. Sydney could get pick nine for Tom Papley with Carlton and already hold pick five.

There’s also a bit of non-trade news going around. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Adelaide have completed a “thorough and wide-ranging review” and the board has endorsed the following findings:
    • a change to the leadership of the football department with head of football Brett Burton to depart
    • a change to the coaching structure with senior assistant Scott Camporeale to also leave the organisation after spending nine years in the coaching department
    • the creation of a new position, head of leadership and culture, to deliver a new player leadership program across all areas of the football department, including AFL and AFLW
    • some small changes within the high performance department to enhance role clarity and communication between staff, coaches and players
  • Adelaide say they expect to appoint a new senior coach within a week. Any other new appointments will happen after that. You can read the full story from Ronny Lerner here.
  • Elsewhere, Simon Garlick has been confirmed as Fremantle’s new CEO. Peter Ryan’s story from yesterday has all the details.

Here’s an hour-by-hour look at the players who have been the most talked about this trade period.

Peter Ryan and Ayrton Woolley discuss the state of play between St Kilda and Fremantle over the Bradley Hill trade. If you thought the Dockers were unhappy that the Saints traded away pick six already, how about Hill? Will the trade actually happen?

Melbourne football boss Josh Mahoney has spoken to Trade Radio about the Sam Frost trade that saw the defender move from Melbourne to Hawthorn. 

Mahoney said he understood why Demons supporters would be asking why the club let Frost go.

But he said the club was confident it had a number of players in the backline who could play Frost’s role. He said the Dees expected Jake Lever and Steven May to play most of next season, and Oscar McDonald and Harrison Petty were available as well, adding that Frost had a great opportunity and a better offer at Hawthorn.

Mahoney also addressed the Ed Langdon deal, with the Docker moving to Melbourne.

He said Langdon, along with Adam Tomlinson, who previously signed as a free agent, both play “important roles” and “bring a running power to our midfield”.

He said the club looked at the Frost and Langdon deals as “a bit of a package”.

In the meantime, you can have a listen to last night’s episode here.

It would be a surprise if Greater Western Sydney veteran Heath Shaw chose not to play on next season, according to his manager Ben Niall.

Shaw earlier in the year said he would retire if the Giants won the premiership, but fell four quarters short of that plan coming to fruition.

And while GWS are happy to have him patrolling their backline again as they aim to go one step further next year, Shaw is using his time away from the club post-season to mentally recharge before accepting the one-year deal offered to him.

“I’d be surprised if he doesn’t go on [for] one more [season], put it that way, given how they’re in the window and how well his body’s holding up and how he’s recovering and the fact that they [GWS] are moving a few players out,” Niall told SEN on Friday.
