REPORTS: Another Hawks premiership star could be forced out

News broke on Wednesday that former Hawthorn captain and four-time premiership player Sam Mitchell is likely to join West Coast to free up salary cap for the Hawks, due to the inclusions of Jaeger O’Meara, Tom Mitchell and Ty Vickery.

But he may not be the only premiership star who the Hawks may consider moving on to free up space in the salary cap.

Reports emergedย on Thursday morning on Melbourne radio station 3AW’s Rumour File, that Jordan Lewisย could be on the move to the Demons, in what could shape as a major shake-up of the club’s playing list.

Lewis would add considerable leadership to Melbourne’s young list, while also giving Hawthorn more space to fit in O’Meara, having already secured deals for Mitchell and Vickery.

However,ย it would seem an unlikely move, as Lewis finished second in this year’s best and fairest behind Sam Mitchell, meaning Hawthorn would be giving away their two bestย players.

Lewis, who is contracted for 2017, is also touted as a possible future captain of the club.

He has played 264 games for Hawthorn, won four premierships and one best and fairest.


    • Good getting rid of old hacks! Sam Mitchell will go down in my books as 300 gamers who hopfully gets on the gear and joins Daniel chick and loses his mind!

    • I hope not for your sake! Its at the point where you can’t feel like any player will be a one club player anymore i hope the afl don’t do what the nrl do and have mid season negotiations where a player and their team mate know that they are playing at a different club next year
