Lack of interest in Jenkins “bemusing”: Dangerfield

Geelong star Patrick Dangerfield is surprised by the lack of interest in Adelaide forward Josh Jenkins.

Jenkins decided to explore his options in the trade period and is prepared to take a major pay cut to find a new home.

With two years remaining on his contract at the Crows, the 30-year-old wants out of West Lakes after a difficult season where he managed just 11 senior games.

Dangerfield believes Jenkins’ goal kicking nous could “really benefit” a rival club looking for additional potency in attack.

“It’s a bit bemusing to be honest,” Dangerfield told Telstra AFL Trade Radio.

“I’m a little bit biased because I’m good mates with him, but I try and remove that hat and I just look at his form when he has played – I think he has a lot to offer at AFL level.

“He’s a goal kicker … you’ve still got to kick a winning score to win games. He hits the scoreboard, he’s a good contested mark and he’s a really intelligent player.

“I think quite often we look at players for what they can’t do rather than what they can do. I think a team would really benefit from him.”

Jenkins kicked 40 plus goals in five consecutive seasons since joining Adelaide at the end of 2011.

Overall, he has 296 majors in 147 matches.
