    He would effectively be a placeholder until their younger rucks come through.

    He is a solid ruckman although he'll never be elite, would come relatively cheap as well. More of an option for Port as I doubt they have the pulling power to lure someone over.

    Was 7th in the league for hit outs last year I believe.

    Re: Trade Talk

    I'm seriously surprised there's so much interest for Clark considering he was done sfa after his one good year in the ruck. Looks like clubs will pay overs for him.

    Hopefully Brisbane make a play for Josh Thomas from Collingwood, he was one of my favorites in that draft (not including Bartlett) and hasn't make his debut yet after a very solid year in the reserves. He's a local boy too.

    You will always have to pay overs for a young KP/Ruckman, as potential and development plays a huge factor.

    Josh Thomas is interesting, IIRC was the only QLD dratee in that year to enter the national draft, as the rest had already been recruited by GC. Has always had big raps around him, not easy breaking into the Pies side I suppose.

    Re: Trade Talk

    That might imply that Thomas wanted to get out of Queensland then? Or didnt Gold Coast try and recruit him? Even if he initially wanted to leave the state, that can quickly change after a long year away from what you're used to.

    Yeah true. He does seems extremely lazy though and could become another top ten pick not playing to his peak.

    No idea if he wants to leave, just know he'd get more opportunity with than Collingwood. They've played a lot of rookies this year but Thomas isn't one of them.

    Yeah GC wanted him, but he opted for the draft.

    FREMANTLE coach Mark Harvey says his club will be fearless at the trade table this year as it looks to rebound from a disappointing season, refusing to rule out a potential move to recruit sacked Brisbane Lions forward Brendan Fevola.
    "It's an interesting choice, isn't it? He's playing quite well," Harvey told 6PR.

    "I see on the weekend he played really well against Jamison for a half.

    "I guess that'll open the eyes up of some of the AFL clubs, but we’ve had no discussion about Brendan at this stage."

    Brisbane can't want Thomas too much given that they passed on him at 73 for Jesse O'Brien which allowed Collingwood to take him with pick 75?

    Surprises me a bit too but I guess guys who can move like him at his size are pretty damn rare. That said, his only good season came as a ruckman and all the reports that come out on him are that he doesn't really like rucking. As a forward he has been decidedly average.

    You'll upset Favs if you keep talking about stealing Thomas by the way Axel. He is his boy from memory

    Reminds me of the Lindsay Gaze quote; "If you're small, you have 3 minutes to show me you can play, if you're tall, you have 3 years to show me you can't"

    Would be hilarious if you got both Clark and Fev. Fev is still on our list so a club would have to cough up a draft pick for him.

    Brisbane probably rated O'Brien higher at that stage, he seems to be working out so far so us. Thomas is also a much better player now than what he was two years ago. Collingwood do develop well.

    Haha i'll try to cut back on him.

    Isn't his contract expired or been severed? Pretty sure he is just able to put in a price and nominate himself for the draft.

    That's exactly what Fev will do if he wants to return to the AFL. Pretty sure Brisbane have no grounds to demand anything for him.
