As potential deals involving Adam Treloar and Josh Dunkley dominate discussion, Jake Niall and Peter Ryan dissect the latest developments. Is Magpie Tom Phillips a 'good fit' for a Hawthorn team without Isaac Smith? St Kilda, now a clear 'destination club', have secured former Bomber Shaun McKernan, confirming their status as the 'new darlings' of AFL trades. And with so many eyes glued to political developments in the United States, it's true that mis-truths in politics are, for the time being anyway, exceeding those seen during a regular AFL the trade period.

In Friday's episode of the Real Footy daily trade series, Collingwood clearly continue to be a central player with the Treloar situation to be resolved over the next six days, the genuine chance that Phillips could get to the Hawks and Jaidyn Stephenson is put under the microscope. According to one of our podcasters, the former Rising Star winner 'needs to pull his finger out'.
