Edmund’s trade update on Dogs mid, young Magpie, Suns forward and more


SEN’s Sam Edmund has provided a comprehensive trade update on several players whose futures remain up in the air.

Speaking on SEN’s Whateley, Edmund gave the latest on Hawthorn veteran Jack Gunston, Collingwood youngster Oliver Henry, Western Bulldogs midfielder Josh Dunkley and more.

An out-of-contract Gold Coast forward could also be on the move this off-season.

See Edmund’s trade update on SEN’s Whateley below:

Jack Gunston (Hawthorn)

“I think we can forget Carlton for Jack Gunston, but certainly Brisbane have asked the question.

“There’s been a link between these two I reckon going back to this time last year when perhaps Jack Gunston’s back issues didn’t have him on the radar, a few clubs were wary about it.

“I think there were conversations at that time between Jack Gunston’s management and Brisbane, but now well and truly back on again.

“Brisbane knows they’re going to be losing Dan McStay, Jack Gunston would be the ideal replacement I would’ve thought.

“If I’m Hawthorn, though, I’m fighting for him to stay.”

Mitch Robinson (Brisbane)

“Mitch Robinson, 33, unrestricted free agent, I think it’s fair to say as we discussed last week or the week prior, facing a really uncertain future at Brisbane.

“Would he have a home at another club? 33 years of age, aggressive, towards the back end of his career of course, but maybe comes across for a bit of leadership and a bit of grunt.

“I think he’s keen to keep going as well.”

Tom De Koning (Carlton)

“Tom De Koning at Carlton might be a watch.

“Now he’s contracted for next year, but that might be one that we need to revisit in the early stages of next year to see where things are at from a Carlton perspective and how much rival interest there might be.”

Josh Corbett (Gold Coast)

“A new name as well … Josh Corbett up at the Gold Coast Suns, attracting some real interest.

“He’s out of contract, he’s a 190cm goalkicking forward, he’s in his mid-20s, 36 games in four years at the Suns, he kicked the second-most goals at the Suns last year from only 16 games.

“He’s had a very interested club watching him in the VFL. Now last week this club I’m told went up to watch him in the VFL, he took 17 marks, he kicked 4.4 and he had 25 possessions.

“The Suns are saying we’ve got a few familiar types, you’re welcome to look around at your options, you might get squeezed out with their list getting peeled back a bit.

“We’ll see what happens with Josh Corbett, who might be a bargain pick-up for a club.”

Oliver Henry (Collingwood)

“The contract offer that came from Collingwood, the management of Ollie Henry perhaps wanted a bit more, that they thought that wasn’t befitting of the talent and promise that he has showed in the games that he’s played, he really has caught the eye.

“But he’s fallen out of favour hasn’t he this year, he’s down the pecking order a bit.

“Collingwood have got players in their best 22 – the (Jack) Ginnivans of the world, the (Beau) McCreerys of the world, who are perhaps on less, so I don’t think Collingwood are going to budge on the offer, so perhaps the decision is Ollie Henry’s to make. Do I stay at Collingwood on less than what I could get elsewhere?

“Ollie Henry is definitely a watch for Collingwood supporters.”

Josh Dunkley (Western Bulldogs)

“Nothing to trumpet at the Dogs.

“I’ve said I was really confident that he would stay because there’s been negotiations … albeit very slow negotiations, but both parties were talking.

“I reckon I’ve lost faith - I think Josh Dunkley might be leaving the Western Bulldogs.

“Now that’s just a guess, an educated guess, but Brisbane absolutely in the frame.

“Port Adelaide have been linked as well, but if I’m saying he’s going, I think Brisbane loom as the likely destination.

“I’m worried for the Dogs, they really want to keep him, think he might be on the move.”
