    Heard on SEN radio that St Kilda have just about got Shiels signed for pick 5 to GWS. So if they want Hannas it will have to be a trade player. McCartin, acres, billings?

    Can't understand why shiel would leave a club in the premiership window for a struggler. Must be big money.

    707, do recall what RO’K told us in person?
    ROK said he was happy to stay if we couldn't get a fair trade done but he wanted more midfield time, which he got.

    The difference in dollars between a talent rich GWS and a lack of stars Saints could be $250k+/yr over 5 years. That's not insignificant money when you have to set up the rest of your life. Would also be going home.

    Shiel knows a better placed Vic club won't offer as much money as Saints and couldn't get a trade done with GWS anyway.

    From GWS viewpoint, they won't be able to match the RFA offers next year so would get a compo pick mid/high teens. Better to get pick 5 in a super draft and not have Shiel next year, their midfield is deep so won't be a huge loss when the "compo" is pick 5. Wonder if Saints will also extract a second from GWS to pay for Hanners?
