Saints, Suns hit snag in Long negotiations 

St Kilda and Gold Coast have reportedly hit a snag in their negotiations over Ben Long.

Fremantle hold firm on contracted pair

Fremantle football boss Peter Bell has moved to shut down trade speculation on contracted pair Rory Lobb and Lloyd Meek, confirming that the duo are required players.

The Dockers farewelled both Griffin Logue and Darcy Tucker on Wednesday, but are playing hardball on Lobb and Meek.

Lobb has expressed his desire for a trade to the Western Bulldogs, while Meek has been linked to several Victorian clubs.

“It's interesting to hear Hawthorn have expressed an interest in Lloyd as a contracted player,” Bell said to fremantlefc.com.au

“We think he has improved massively this year, and every year he's been at the Club. He's really important for our future plans.

“We're really eager to retain Lloyd. As I mentioned before, he is contracted and a valued member of our team.”

Irish ex-Blue declines Carlton, AFL return

Former Carlton defender Ciarán Byrne has turned his back on a potential AFL return, instead opting to remain in Ireland to continue his Gaelic football career.

Byrne, who played 22 games for Carlton across a five-year period with the club, was floated as a potential target for AFL sides ahead of 2023, with the 27-year-old having weighed up a return down under in recent months.

The Blues were named as an interested suitor for the flanker as part of a potential return to Princes Park, but Byrne has now decided to remain with Gaelic club St Mochta's and County side Louth in a move labelled as a "no brainer".

"It came down to what means more to me," Byrne told RTÉ Sport.
