Lions trying to lure star Docker to the Gabba

BRISBANE is trying to lure Fremantle star Lachie Neale to the Gabba.

AFL.com.au understands there is genuine interest between both parties and that Neale has raised the idea with the Dockers.

He was knocked back at the first attempt.

The Lions are trying desperately to bolster a midfield that relies heavily on Dayne Beams and Dayne Zorko and are prepared to part with their first-round pick in this year's NAB AFL Draft (currently No.4) to do so.

Neale has a year to run on his contract and will be a restricted free agent at the end of 2019.

Gun. Wanted him a few years ago. Now, we already have Oliver and Brayshaw that win the ball in a similar fashion. We need diversity in our midfield and he doesn't offer it.

Quality player but i think Pick 4 is a bit much for Brisbane to give up. He wouldn't be in the top 15 mids in the comp.

Freo won’t win a game without him.

Wow some people place so much value on picks - If I was Brissy i’d do this in a heartbeat! Pick 4 could easily be a busy and he’s a ready made A-grader (perhaps not A+). He’ll be an older head they will need when they are ready to challenge.

If Tom  Mitchell was traded for Pick 14 I don't see how Neale is worth pick 4 (not withstanding Neale is contracted; will be free agent next year). I would be surprised if Freo traded him as I agree he is a top player, maybe im a tight arse!

Same here, I’d do the deal in an instant if I was Brisbane. Considering the Suns gave away pick 2 for Weller this to me would be a no brainer. 

I’d be trying hard to hold him to his contract if I was Freo though. The guy is a serious player.

Tbf I thought this was an absolute joke of a deal at the time haha, was driving me insane listening to the ‘experts’ saying “yeah that seems about right doesn’t it” when he was such a sure thing. I suppose it’s also how much you trust your recruiters - we know what Taylor can do with a pick 4 (although I suppose everyone trusts in the moment). Maybe our pre-Taylor drafting glory years have affected my opinion slightly but I just feel a proven top 5 list player is always better than going to the lottery - I’d trade Neale in for pick 1 (would be doing everything I could if I was Carlton to get a player of similar quality to Neale for their selection).

Great player but no chance we would be in for him.  We don't have the picks to even get close to satisfy what Freo would want if they decide they need to move him on before his contract is up.

That's why he made the AA40 this year, eh???

He has had a good year but I would still have these guys ahead of him:

Bontempelli
Conigilio
Cripps
Crouch
Dangerfield
Fyfe
Gaff
Higgins
Kelly
Macrae
Martin
Merrett
Mitchell
Oliver
Parker
Pendlebury
Sloane
Treloar
Ward

Freos list is in worse shape than Brisbanes. I would be surprised if Freo moved him on. Pick 4 is tempting, but they really need to hold on to their better players unless they plan to bottom out. Can't see Ross Lyon bottoming out for a rebuild.

I probably would too but I was replying to your previous post that's all. You could probably add Rayner to that list who is going to be a star.

I'm a big fan of what Brisbane are doing, lost a few close ones this year and are not as bad as many reckon. St.Kilda is the one, rotten. And dare I say it, I think Geelong is going to be up ship creek in a couple of years.

Yep, totally agree. Bris have built a great list. Geelong are in massive strife come 2020. Just not enough A grade kids down at the cattery

If Hogan were to leave I feel the pick 4 from this trade would be involved.

Hogan will stay he just has to learn to be more than a flat track bully.

It's pick 5 Brisbane's pick due to Lynch leaving.

If we can't get Gaff I'd be after Neale good little player. Don't know what we would give for him though.

disaster for Freo.  half way through a rebuild to lose your second best player who has 7 years left in him.  why does he want to leave I wonder??  a very deliberate move that likely was engineered already with brisbane unofficially

Freo have good youngsters under 21yo and Fyfe.  that is it.   they will have pain next year

Brisbane on the other hand are building a gun midfield and will press for finals next year imo
