The 2023 Trade Period has just one day to go, and a series of major deal still remain on the table as time ticks down. Join The Roar for a live blog and rolling coverage of the day’s news, rumours and action from 9am (AEDT).
Just hours remain in the trade period for 2023, and a swathe of deals remain on the table.
Busiest of all will be Hawthorn, who have four deals on offer they must navigate: Mabior Chol, Jack Gunston and Jack Ginnivan on the way in, and Jacob Koschitzke on the way out.
Those trio of ins are all contracted at their current clubs, lessening the Hawks’ bargaining power and removing the option of the pre-season and national drafts; that road looms large for a pair of Port Adelaide deals, with Esava Ratugolea and Brandon Zerk-Thatcher now both likely to join the Power in those circumstances as talks with Geelong and Essendon respectively stall.
Then there’s the prospect of a last-day surprise, with Dylan Shiel not quite as secure at the Bombers as his current contract and assurances from list manager Adrian Dodoro last week would seem to indicate. Could we see a shock twist in the dying minutes of the trade period?
