Kelly an Eagle after Cats accept AFL picks

Geelong have accepted a swag of draft picks from West Coast in return for star midfielder Tim Kelly in a blockbuster AFL trade finalised on Wednesday.

The Cats will receive selections 14, 24 and 37 in this year’s draft and the Eagles’ first-round pick in the 2020 draft in return for Kelly, Geelong’s pick 57 this year and a third-round selection in 2020.

“The selections we have secured will give us the best opportunity to add high-end talent to our list in the upcoming national draft,” Cats recruiting manager Stephen Wells said.
