Player manager comments on Dockers duo, provides Hill update

Rory Lobb and Griffin Logue have both been linked with moves away from Fremantle.

Lobb is attracting reported interest from the Western Bulldogs while Logue, who remains unsigned beyond 2022, has put contract talks with the Dockers on hold, according to SEN’s Sam Edmund.

Lobb is contracted to Fremantle until the end of 2023 and is coming off a career-best five-goal performance against Port Adelaide last week.

Corporate Sports Australia player manager Colin Young was quizzed about his clients on SEN WA’s The Run Home on Wednesday.

“If you read some of the articles going on in Melbourne, Griffin Logue is going to the Western Bulldogs,” Young said.

“Griffin Logue and the Western Bulldogs have never discussed that. The Bulldogs have never rung me about Griffin Logue.

“Rory was named to a club two weeks ago, I’m not going to say which club it was, but it wasn’t true.

“At the moment, all Rory is doing is right now, and he said last night, was focusing on the game, hopefully winning a premiership, and he’ll have a chat to the club at the end of the year to see where they’re at and he’s at.

“That’s where it sits.”

Young says Logue’s versatility makes him an exciting package.

The 24-year-old has been deployed at both ends of the ground by Dockers coach Justin Longmuir this season.

“He said he loves playing forward because at night when he plays back, he doesn’t sleep because he has to think who he’s playing on,” Young said.

“The greatest thing about Griffin Logue is he’s got so much upside. He can play forward now and then he can play back … so he can play in multiple positions.

“That’s the exciting thing about Griffin Logue, during a game you can switch him all over the place and put him on a small.

“There’s a lot to like about Griffin Logue.”

Young also provided an update on GWS forward Ian ‘Bobby’ Hill following his testicular cancer diagnosis.

“I did speak to Bobby about two weeks ago to ask him how he was going,” he said.

“He was up and about. His surgery was very good.

“I don’t think he’ll play, I think he’ll be finished for the season.

“No doubt we’ll catch up with Bobby and see where he fits at probably the end of Round 20 to see where it all goes.

“Andrew (McDougall) and I will be flying over to Sydney to catch up with the two Sydney teams hopefully in the next few weeks.”

Hill was linked with Collingwood and Essendon in last year’s trade period.
