How Neale’s availability “changes the landscape”

Garry Lyon believes Lachie Neale’s potential availability “changes the landscape” for clubs chasing elite talent this offseason.

SEN Time On host Sam McClure reported yesterday Neale is open to a trade to Brisbane.

Greater Western Sydney’s Dylan Shiel and West Coast’s Andrew Gaff have been the two players rival clubs having been chasing hardest, but if the Fremantle midfielder is available, Lyon thinks it should adjust the mentality of teams across the league.

“If he (Neale) is open to a trade, I think this changes the landscape, in terms of who clubs have made their priority,” Lyon told SEN Breakfast.

“If Dylan Shiel has been the one or if Andrew Gaff has long been held the one, I think this absolutely turns it around, if Lachie Neale is getable.”

Neale averaged 30.3 disposals this season for the Dockers, making it four straight campaigns of amassing at least 27 or more touches.
