REVEALED -- How The Adelaide Crows Could Land Brodie Grundy

May 15, 2019


The Adelaide Crows are “armed with the financial war chest” to lure Collingwood ruckman Brodie Grundy who “misses his home town”, according to a report.

Writing for News Ltd, Richard Earle says:

“The Crows could have to outlay $7-8 million for Grundy when they traditionally don’t pay any player more than $1 million a season.

“A potential No.1 draft pick -- obtained from Carlton as part of last year’s controversial draft trade for Liam Stocker -- could sweeten any deal to get Grundy to West Lakes next season.

“If Josh Jenkins failed to regain his spot from Elliott Himmelberg then another trade path could open. Jenkins, who finished an impressive third in club champion voting last year, is contracted until 2021.

“Collingwood risks minimal compensation if Grundy chose to leave in 2020 as Adelaide found when its 2015 Malcolm Blight Medallist Patrick Dangerfield exited to Geelong.

“Adelaide is set to prosper from last November’s landmark, live trade for Carlton’s first round pick. The Blues are on track to clinch the wooden spoon giving Adelaide the No.1 pick this year.

“Third-ranked Adelaide offloaded its pick 19 at the 2018 draft and 2019 first round pick to Carlton.”

Earlier this year FIVEaa’s Mark Bickley urged his former club to do whatever it takes to snag Grundy.
