WEST Coast has joined the hunt for Western Bulldogs Norm Smith medallist Jason Johannisen. "West Coast has registered an interest in the player," Galic said.

Could release yeo in the middle and he could also form part of the midfield rotation.

I think West Coast's main targets should be JJ, M McGovern and Blake Acres.

It's a big couple of weeks for Darling, with Kennedy out, and it could decide his future at the club. If he stands up and performs, id be happy to keep him, if he doesn't and continues his mid level performance id be willing to trade him and possibly do a 3 way deal to get M McGovern in return.

I know for a fact, Fremantle have put forward an offer to Acres to return home. Growing up Acres was a West Coast fan and was hoping he would get drafted by us and even when got drafted by Saints, was possibly thinking of trying to get back home after a few seasons. Having said that, he has been at the Saints though for a few years now he seems to like it as I think he signed a contract extension a year or two back. But if Fremantle are trying to entice him back, West Coast should at least speak to him as if he wants to come home, I think we would be a decent chance at getting him as growing up all he wanted to do was play footy for West Coast.

Ina an article in the age about potential changes to Free-Agency they mentioned that the AFL was considering Four-year free agency whereby any player earning on or under the median AFL wage would be free to choose a new club after four years of service.

Players potentially falling into that four-year category at the end of 2017 include Zak Jones (Sydney), Blake Acres (St Kilda), Jarman Impey (Port Adelaide), Daniel McStay (Brisbane) and Tom Barrass (West Coast).


That sounds as if Blake Acres isn't getting good coin at the Saints and is out of contract this year, also means Barrass' name is there as well. Problem is what would it cost us?

I'd absolutely love for Mitch McGovern come home. According to recent article on SEN (forgot the link) we are heavily into him.

Trade: 2018 First Rounder
Receive: Mitch McGovern

I see we still need to sign Thomas Gorter onto a long term contract.

I would rather chase an A grade mid, we have enough forwards and defenders

Yep - we should be putting in every effort to get JJ. I think he'd be easier to shift out of the Dogs than Acres would be to get out of St Kilda - they're on the cusp of being pretty damn good. JJ already has his premiership medal + a Norm Smith. Nothing left to prove at the Dogs - which isn't to say he'll shift, but makes it more of a possibility.

Yeah, someone who wins the contested ball. Maybe someone with a cousin at the club and who also comes from Northampton. I don't think carlton would let Cripps of the P kind go cheaply. If Gibbs is anything to go by, it'll be 2 first rounders. but could be worth it, esp if Priddis and Mitchell retire.

Masten plus a first rounder should do the trick :lol:

With Saints having the bye this week, Acres is in Perth and was conviently catching up with Andrew McDougall today. McDougall is his manager. Looking likely to be returning home at the end of the season i reckon.

We will see how johannison stands up to being targeted, no doubt the rest of the comp will look how the swans took every opportunity to rough him up, within the rules of the game and how it affected his performance.

I would be incredibly dissapointed if we don't employ the same tactics on him in a few weeks.

It seriously impacted his game the direct targetting didn't it? Yeah think we will probably give it a miss then. I mean our team is going really well anyways so we should be able to just go head to head with him and beat him that way anyways...
