Tom Browne has reported on ‘The Hot Breakfast’ that Hawthorn has increased their offer for out of contract GWS star Stephen Coniglio.

Browne believes Carlton and GWS are genuinely worried about Hawthorn and their ability to swoop in on Coniglio.

“By this stage in their free agency both [Josh] Kelly and [Dustin] Martin had recommitted to their respective clubs. There is still radio silence from the Stephen Coniglio camp,” Browne said on The Hot Breakfast.

“Hawthorn are right into him. Carlton and GWS are legitimately worried, I think Hawthorn have increased their offer in recent weeks.”
