The draft pick used to select Sam Mitchell in 2001 was part of the epic trade deal between Hawthorn and Fremantle. Here’s how it went down:

Hawthorn traded Trent Croad and Luke McPharlin to Fremantle for draft picks 1, 20 and 36.

Trent Croad was a fan favourite, four years into his career and about to announce himself a one of the premier forwards in the competition and Luke McPharlin was an emerging yet home-sick defender. There was uproar from Hawks fans, but they won’t be unhappy now, they have four premierships in the bag.

Hawthorn used pick 1 to draft Captain, Luke Hodge.
They wasted pick 20 on a player called Daniel Elstone, taken four picks ahead of Steve Johnson.
And they used pick 36 on former Captain, Sam Mitchell.

Could Mitchell to West Coast lead to another golden era for Hawthorn?

Aside from the Sam Mitchell bombshell this morning, it’s been a slow news day so far. Read about Daniel Wells’ move to Collingwood while we wait for some trades to drop.

Gaints defender, Joel Patfull has announced his retirement from the game.

GWS had this to say, “In the interest of fulfilling a required player payment and the club adhering to the Total Player Payment (TPP) obligations, Joel has been delisted by the Giants but will be selected by the club at next month’s rookie draft.

This will see Joel rookie-listed on the Giants roster for 2017, as approved by the AFL. ”

Patfull leaves the AFL as a 220 game player for both the Brisbane Lions and the GWS Giants.

Before we sign off for the day we’ve got one more thing to bring to the fore. An in-principle trade has been struck between Hawthorn and Sydney. Hawthorn will trade pick 14 to Sydney for Tom Mitchell and the two clubs will swap later picks, to be decided next week. Although the trade won’t be official until then, you can read about it here:
