TRADE: Vardy traded for the nothing he’s worth #AFLTrades

Nathan Vardy played 4 games in the last 3 years for Geelong, a combination of injury and poor fit with Geelong’s multi-skilled part-time ruck strategy keeping him out.

As a 25 year old with no track record and no prospect of breaking into the best Cats team he is basically worth nothing in expected future output. He moves to West Coast as part of a short term attempt to cover for the loss of Naitanui, and will sit behind Lycett and Giles for ruck spots there.

Pick 72 is nearly nothing, but not quite. It’s Geelong’s fifth pick currently, last year they used pick 70 live as the last pick in the draft. This year they may or may not use it.

Verdict: Token pick for nearly valueless player.
