#5 Devon Smith


Don’t know an awful lot about the guy. Do we want?

Is he a HFF, or does he play much mid too?


DEVON Smith’s manager Ned Guy has confirmed four clubs are in the mix for the Giant.

Smith has long been linked to Essendon and Carlton and has toured both club’s facilities in the last week.

Collingwood are keen on the forward while St Kilda is also in the mix.

Guy said he thinks Smith will decide on his destination within the next week.



“We are hoping (to have a decision) by the end of this week if not early next week so we can move pretty quickly once we know which direction he wants to take,” Smith’s manager Guy told AFL Trade Radio.

“A big one for Devon is the player management and how they manage the players back through rehab. He was in a race against time to get back for the prelim final and just missed out.”

Landing Smith would be another big win for the Blues who have also secured one Giant this trade period.

Matthew Kennedy committed to Carlton on Tuesday.


It’s “FRITZ”, you philistines.



Stringer, Smith, Saad, Schache, Sloane!!!


Need to make it happen !


SOS must have photos and wag tell all stories on a lot of GWS players.
Anyway, although 24, Smith appeared to peak when he was 22 so he may have some upside. In 2015 he was the 4th best small forward in the comp.


Yes please, an older version of Jack Higgins


Essendon need a player, as much as i hate to say it, like Jack Ziebel.Strong inside powerful midfielder who can slide forward.

That more than anything.



Devon is ours


Devon could be the new Hams?


Played junior football as a mid/wing.
Has been been playing as a HFF with GWS simply because of their quality in the midfield.

I’m concerned about bringing in another midget.

Decent player tho.


No, it’s actually Stras(burg).


Hoping not.


Just revealed that Smith’s (and Jake Lever’s) manager Ned Guy has been appointed List Manager at Collingwood. Can’t recall ever before that a player manager has ever held such a position at a football club. How will that impact Smith and his destination?


Reminds me of a better version of Richard Douglas.


Fark me… that’s a new method of getting players. May work.


surely thats a conflict of interest


This is ridiculous, surely a player manager can’t become a list manager, especially at the same time? Surely the AFL wouldn’t allow that.


My 4 years working at a deli has my eye twitching at the thought of ■■■■ like devon/stras/whatever other over processed ■■■■ you guys eat.


Taking the Silvagni / Carlton method to new heights.


Don’t think we need this type of player. Surely we need to be chasing inside mids first and foremost.
