Adelaide Crows List Manager Explains Live Trading Draft Bombshell

Nov 23, 2018


No risk, no reward, says Adelaide FC list manager Justin Reid after the club’s stunning live draft during the 2018 AFL Draft on Thursday night.

Adelaide traded pick 19 and their first round pick next year for Carlton’s first round pick next year.

“Carlton came to us in the last 24-hours and flagged the idea," Reid said.

"Some will say it potentially comes with risk but it also potentially comes with reward as is always the case.”

Adelaide also picked up Chayce Jones and Ned McHenry.

"We are absolutely thrilled to have landed two players we really wanted in Chayce and Ned and they are quality kids both on and off the field," Reid said.

"We are also really confident of claiming another elite talent with pick 24 [on Friday]."
