Deal done as Lachie Neale is a Lion!
It’s the move that could send the last day into full swing!
In what seems like it has been months in the making, the Lachie Neale to Brisbane deal was done within minutes of Fremantle Dockers arriving.
What will Fremantle receive for Lachie Neale?
While Lachie will be a huge loss for Fremantle with an average of 30 touches now walking out the door and the bulk of the middle load now squarely on Nat Fyfe shoulders.
Initial reports are suggesting picks 6 and 19 will be going back to Fremantle Dockers for Lachie Neale.
Lachie Neale is officially a Lion.

Bittersweet feeling about Lachie Neale. He’s an absolute jet. But if Freo can land Hogan & Lobb it will be worth it. From memory Neale was pick 58… Hopefully we can find another gem like him in this draft
