10:45am – Gratz says Frio offer ‘not fair’ to Jackson
AFL greats Ken Corns and Matthew Lloyd believe Fremantle should add two first-round picks to their current offer for Devils young gun Luke Jackson.
A report in Herald Sun The Melbourne Territory Devils have been “encouraged” to consider Fremantle’s top 13 and future first-round pick Luke Jackson as they continue their pursuit of Collingwood big man Brodie Grundy.
But Melbourne is digging in its heels and is said to be looking for two top-10 picks or a top-seven pick and a future first-rounder.

And speaking AFL Business Radio, Cornes said he thinks the Dockers’ current proposal for the former pick 3 is not good enough.
“If I were Melbourne I wouldn’t accept Fremantle’s top 13 pick and future first round pick Luke Jackson, considering he’s the most valuable prospect on the table,” the Port Adelaide legend said.
“I don’t think that’s fair – pick 13 and the future first – (the latter) will be the same (as pick 13). So for two late first round draft picks for Luke Jackson, I don’t think it’s fair value.
“If I was in Melbourne, I’d keep standing and I’d want a bit more.”
“I’m with you, I don’t think it’s enough,” Lloyd added. I think there should be something in the top 10 to trade Luke Jackson this year.
10:30AM – Richmond knock back Giants’ bid for Ralph Smith.
Richmond have reportedly rejected the GWS Giants’ advances for young gun Hugo Ralphsmith as part of the Jacob Hopper deal.
Channel 7’s Mitch Cleary reports that Ralphsmith’s name has been floated in trade talks in addition to Richmond’s pick 31 and future first-round pick, with new Giants coach and former Tigers assistant Adam Kingsley believed to be a big fan of the 20-year-old.
However, the report states that Richmond had no interest in contacting Ralph Smith.

“He’s come back so fast, he wanted to be out of the Tigers team at the end of the season but that’s not going to happen,” Crary said.
But Adam Kingsley wanted to get the ball rolling on that.
Now Tigers ruckman Ivan Soldo could be included in the package to the Giants, with the big man completing his medical with the western Sydney club.
6 am — Bulldogs willing to use draft option on Dunkley
The Western Bulldogs are reportedly willing to use the pre-season draft if Brisbane do not match their bid for Josh Dunkley.
The club was said to be “angry” at the state of trade talks yesterday, especially after the Lions traded their first pick (No.15) to GWS this year and a second round pick next year.
The Bulldogs want two first-round picks, and Brisbane are willing to send their current top pick (No.21) and 2023 first-rounders 30 and 39 if they return.
That’s because the Lions need draft picks to compete on No. 1 prospect Will Ashcroft and possibly late first-round pick Jaspa Fletcher. They could keep pick 21 from the Giants and trade him on draft night if Ashcroft comes in as the No. 1 bid for an extra point.
But with neither side interested in including the player in the deal, the Bulldogs are reportedly willing to use the pre-season draft – potentially keeping Dunkley in the process.

The preseason draft is risky, as any club can take a player, going in the opposite order of the previous season’s ladder (just like the first order of the national draft).
However, players can dictate the terms of their contracts, as when Carlton signed Jack Martin, the former Suns saw his contract hit around $1 million in his first season, meaning few rivals could afford to fit him under the cap. up
Essendon could be the biggest beneficiary if Dunkley heads into the pre-season draft as they were in talks to land him two years ago and have a top spot.
The Bombers have Dunkley under consideration this year, ahead of Port Adelaide, the Bulldogs (who could do it again) and Brisbane after that.
Brisbane Football boss Danny Daley is hopeful a deal can be struck to get Dunkley to the Gabba in the next six days.
“We feel we’re on the way to some degree of agreement, but out of respect for the dogs, I can’t go into what it will look like at the minute. We are working on it minute to minute and hopefully it will all be completed in the next few days,” Daly told Business Radio on Thursday.
The Lions are looking to trade for free agent Jack Gunston because trading for him would ensure their compensation options aren’t depleted by losing Dan McStain.
They could send a pick to Hawthorn for a veteran goalkeeper in his 40s and 50s.
