Bulldogs’ trade period recap

A summary of the deals we made this 2021 Continental Tyres AFL Trade Period.

Here's a summary of the deals the Western Bulldogs made during the 2021 Continental Tyres AFL Trade Period.

Four-club draft points boost
The Bulldogs’ first deal of the trade period saw them significantly boost their draft hand via a four-club pick swap.
The exchange – involving Adelaide, St Kilda and Melbourne - saw the Dogs gain picks 23, 44 and 45, while offloading selections 17 and 75.
It handed the Bulldogs an extra 499 points, which can be used at the upcoming 2021 NAB AFL Draft on November 24.

O’Brien becomes a Bulldog
The Bulldogs’ next deal saw former Hawthorn key position utility Tim O’Brien arrive at the Kennel as an unrestricted free agent.
Signing a two-year deal, the 27-year-old expects to be deployed in the Dogs’ defence, having played a mix of forward, back and even pinch-hitting in the ruck across his 97-game career.
Ironically, his best outing of the season came against the Bulldogs in Round 22, where he collected 24 disposals and took 10 marks as an intercept defender.

Young departs for Carlton
A triple-team trade, this time involving Carlton and West Coast, saw the Bulldogs earn an extra third-round draft pick while sending Lewis Young to the Blues.
As part of the deal, Carlton traded Sam Petrevski-Seton to West Coast in exchange for pick 52, which was then on-traded to the Bulldogs to facilitate the trade for Young.

Lipinski leaves for Collingwood
The Bulldogs’ final deal of the trade period saw them receive Collingwood’s selection 43 in the upcoming draft, in exchange for Patrick Lipinski.
It came after Lipinski requested a trade to the Pies at the conclusion of the 2021 finals series.

Based on the above deals, the Bulldogs will take picks 23, 43, 44, 45, 52 and 93* in the 2021 NAB AFL Draft, which is set to be held on November 24 and 25.

Dogs’ trio re-sign
The trade period also saw three players recommit to the Club, with Jordon Sweet (2023), Roarke Smith (2023) and Mitch Wallis (2022) all putting pen to paper on contract extensions.
Sweet made his senior debut in round five, collecting eight disposals and 31 hit-outs, before adding a further four games to his career tally throughout the season.
After seven consecutive rookie deals, Smith’s persistence paid off – signing a two-year deal after playing 14 matches, including all four finals, this year.
Vice-captain Wallis will remain a Bulldog for season 2022, having played 153 games in the red, white and blue since arriving as a father-son selection in the 2010 national draft.  

*As of Wednesday 13 October.
