Did the Blues get a bargain with the Setterfield trade?


Seems like a pretty cheap price for a promising, albeit oft injured, young midfielder.
Yep, absolutely robbed them.

What I donít get is why GWS players keep nominating Carlton - itís where talented youngsters go to die (well, their careers anyway).

Ch 7's Tom Browne is saying on Twitter that Scully has passed his medical with the Hawks and he will end up there for a late pick  :pray :clapping

Struth GWS salary cap squeeze is unbelievable

twitter also sprouting that Freo no longer chasing Jesse Hogan

Just announced by the club.

Well done Freo. Called Melbourne's bluff.

Watch Hogan end up there for pick 11.

2nd round draft pick next year will still be top 20 considering its carlton  :snidegrin

dont know what else you could ask for a player thats played only 2 afl games.

If Hawks get Scully for not much I'll be pretty disappointed.

Donít think itís as cut and dry as that with Scully, if it was only hawthorn there would be an announcement from both clubs like with Shiel, setterfield, wingard, Neale, etc.

St Kilda also let slip that thereís another club in the running closer to a premiership than them which doesnít really narrow it down given how bad the saints were this year.....

It wonít be for nothing mate it will be for big $$$

I wouldnít mind Scully, but like some have suggested, he seems to go to the highest bidddr which hawks will be given the cap space they have

If thatís case tata

I donít see how we can fit any more players in, weíve still got draftees to go which will still have a minimum wage. Unless we trade somebody out I donít believe any rumour about any player coming here. If any pick any later than Hawkís first round gets Scully across the line then I wonder how much of his contract the Giants are paying.
Kick a crow.

Agree, although I think we probably could squeeze in another player if we wanted to.

Gut feel is we are keeping our powder dry for next year.

Scully seems like a bit of a risk to me with his recent injury history.

A fit Scully would be a great get, but do we need to take this risk at this time?

It's understood other clubs tried to contact Scully's manager Mark Kleiman on Friday but their calls went unanswered.

Concerns over Scully's broken ankle dissuaded some Victorian clubs from pursuing Scully and should ensure Hawthorn won't have to part with anything more than its second-round pick, No.35 overall, to secure the midfielder, who was contracted at GWS for another three years.
