Hawthorn Denies Telling Luke Breust He'd Be Put Up For Trade
Hawks slam claims
Hawthorn has denied telling Luke Breust that he’d be put up for trade before their semi-final loss to the Western Bulldogs on Friday night.
Wayne Carey said yesterday that he’d heard that Breust was likely to leave to make way for Jaeger O’Meara from Gold Coast and Tom Mitchell from Sydney as the Hawks make tough list management calls.
But the Hawks shut that speculation down.
Mitchell, O’Meara and Richmond big man Tyrone Vickery have all been repeatedly linked to the Hawks ahead of the 2016 trade period.
Sydney are happy to take picks for Mitchell, but the Suns have made clear that they want a high quality player to compensate for the loss of O’Meara.
