Who will stay and who will go? Every AFL free agent as of right now and where they’ll be in 2019.
Make sure to stay tuned in to 1116 SEN as the latest trade and free agency news drops.
Tom Lynch (Gold Coast Suns): Gone
Already declared he’s leaving Gold Coast with many believing Richmond has him locked away.
Bachar Houli (Richmond): Stay
Will take less money to stay at the Tigers.
Andrew Gaff (West Coast): Gone
He’s yet to re-commit and the signs point to him leaving the Eagles and joining a Victorian team.
Scott Lycett (West Coast): Gone
The Eagles are reportedly resigned to Lycett leaving the club with Port Adelaide leading the race to sign him.
Jordan Roughead (Western Bulldogs): Gone
Roughead has met with West Coast about a move and seems likely to be out the door.
Mitch Wallis (Western Bulldogs): Stay
Wallis doesn’t want to leave and while he remains unsigned, the Dogs surely won’t lose everybody.
Andy Otten (Adelaide Crows): Stay
Otten is good enough to warrant sticking around at the Crows.
Rohan Bewick (Brisbane Lions): Delisted
Bewick hasn’t played since Round 4 and the Lions appear to have gone past him.
Ryan Lester (Brisbane Lester): Stay
The 26-year-old played 15 games this year and will likely get another year at the Lions.
Kade Simpson (Carlton): Stay
Brendon Bolton said Simpson will go around again next year with the Blues.
Jarryd Blair (Collingwood): Delisted
The Pies have built considerable forward line depth and don’t seem to see Blair as anything more than depth.
Alex Fasolo (Collingwood): Gone
Fasolo has been linked to a move to Carlton and could use a fresh start after spending most of the year in the VFL.
Tyson Goldsack (Collingwood): Stay
Given Goldsack’s hard work to get back from an ACL injury at the start of the year, it’s hard to see the Pies delisting him. They’ll need every defender they can get.
George Horlin-Smith (Geelong Cats): Gone
Horlin-Smith hasn’t played since Round 9 and has been linked to a move up north to the Gold Coast.
Daniel Menzel (Geelong Cats): Gone
The Cats are targeting Luke Dahlhaus and last year showed they weren’t willing to offer Menzel more than one year.
Michael Rischitelli (Gold Coat Suns): Stay
Rischitelli has already committed to going around again for Gold Coast next year.
Taylor Duryea (Hawthorn): Stay
Duryea remains unsigned and hasn’t played since Round 16, but remains integral to Hawthorn’s depth going forward.
Paul Puopolo (Hawthorn): Stay
Puopolo has been re-signed by the Hawks for the 2019 season.
Ryan Schoenmakers (Hawthorn): Stay
Schoenmakers hasn’t missed a game since Round 18 and does enough to prove he should be kept around another year.
Brendan Whitecross (Hawthorn): Delisted
Whitecross has earned his spot on the list the last few years, but appears to have been passed by a number of younger players.
Scott Thompson (North Melbourne): Stay
Thompson played 22 games this year and Brad Scott has indicated he’ll be kept around.
Sam Wright (North Melbourne): Stay
Wright fought hard to get back into North’s team after 701 days on the sidelines and played every game after that.
Justin Westhoff (Port Adelaide): Stay
Westhoff was almost in career-best form for the Power and absolutely must be a part of their side going forward.
Reece Conca (Richmond): Stay
Conca is one of a number of Tigers who’s out of contract, but it’s hard to see clubs going hard enough to pry him out of Punt Road.
Shaun Grigg (Richmond): Stay
Grigg is in a similar boat to Conca and Houli and will likely take a pay cut to stay at the Tigers.
Mark LeCras (West Coast): Stay
LeCras has had a good year for the Eagles, but has said he hasn’t thought about 2019 just yet. There’s no reason to think they won’t keep him around.
Eric Mackenzie (West Coast): Delisted
Mackenzie hasn’t played a game this year, dealing with a toe injury. The 32-year-old’s career may be done.
Luke Dahlhaus (Western Bulldogs): Gone
Dahlhaus has already informed the Bulldogs that he’s out the door.
Tom Liberatore (Western Bulldogs): *Stay*
Liberatore is coming off an ACL injury and apparently hasn’t drawn much interest from other clubs. The Dogs should be able to keep him around.
