Sam McClure's comprehensive trade update on Brown, Daniher, Crouch, Saad, Cameron and more


The silly season is set to begin in earnest, with 10 of the competition’s 18 clubs done for the year after the completion of Round 18.

The upcoming trade and free agency period is tipped to be the busiest in history, as teams try and manage proposed cuts to list sizes due to COVID-19.
