GWS warn Hawks over Patton AFL trade

GWS have warned Hawthorn they won’t let Jonathon Patton join the Hawks in a bargain-basement deal similar to the trade they did for Tom Scully.

Patton has declared he wants a fresh start at Hawthorn, but Giants list manager Jason McCartney told AFL Trade Radio on Wednesday the key forward’s situation is different to that of Scully, who cost the Hawks a lowly fourth-round draft pick last year.

McCartney also revealed the club is leaning towards doing a trade with Adelaide for Sam Jacobs despite the veteran ruckman being a free agent.
