Lions captain in trade talk


AFL’s trade week continues to surprise.

There’s speculation that Lions captain Tom Rockliff may be changing clubs.

And Hawthorn has traded a triple Premiership player.

Paxton Roth reports.

TRANSCRIPT

The Hawks traded midfielder Brad Hill to Fremantle, for pick 23 in this year’s draft.

Hill had already said he wanted to play alongside his brother.

In Brisbane, new coach Chris Fagan has met with disgruntled captain Tom Rockliff.

Rockliff has been linked with several clubs during the trade period, after a falling out with the Lions’ hierarchy.

Manly forward Jake Trbojevic has been rushed into the Kangaroos Squad for the Four Nations Tournament in Perth.

He replaces the injured Josh Papalii.

Matt Scott, Kangaroos Forward: “Someone like Jake coming in is really exciting… another new face. Ah, I think someone with a great work ethic and really good defensively.”

The Aussies play New Zealand on Saturday.

In Netball, Australia has lost match two of the Constellation Cup Series against New Zealand.

It was all square at half time.

The Diamonds opened up a two goal lead early in the final quarter.

But the Silver Ferns were too good and won 53 to 51.
