Dream Team

Mackay might be on the move


Player Name: David Mackay

Current Club: Adelaide Crows

Potential Club: Mackay is contracted until the end of the 2018 season and is poised to become a one-club player. However the Crows need midfielders meaning a host of names will need to be up for discussion if players reportedly being targeted including Tom Rockliff and Hamish Hartlett are to make the move to West-Lakes.

The Original Price: David Mackay was drafted by the Adelaide Crows with pick forty-eight in the 2006 National Draft

The Good: Known for his familiar run and carry and ability to break the lines down back the departure of Patrick Dangerfield presented an opportunity to play more midfield minutes this year. He didn’t disappoint, averaging 19.7 disposals just shy of his 20.2 career high and 4.4 tackles for the season, highlighting his ability to find the football whilst maintaining defensive pressure around the contest.

The Bad: His form has always been a concern finding himself in and out of the senior side on numerous occasions throughout his career. His inability to kick goals and be a genuine game breaker is no doubt due to his inability to consistently find the football never averaged over 20 disposals a game in his career.

What his club wants: The Crows want more midfield depth meaning all players will need to be up for discussion.

What he’s worth: Contracted until the end of 2018, Mackay would only come into trade negotiations if rival clubs brought him up for discussion.

What we’d pay: Mid third-round pick

Possible trade scenarios: Mackay will only be up for trade if rival clubs bring him up as a player who would help get a trade across the line.

The Verdict: Remains at the Adelaide Crows

Star Rating: 3/5
