Tom Mitchell Moves to Hawthorn

Sydney midfielder Tom Mitchell has been traded to Hawthorn for picks 14 and 52 in exchange for pick 57.

He comes off a great 2016 season with the Swans after averaging 28 disposals.

He was also important in this years finals series and was one of Sydney’s best players in the Grand Finals with 26 disposals and 2 goals.

Mitchell, was picked at 21 as a father son pick in the 2011 AFL draft and so far has played 65 games and kicked 38 goals.

This trade comes after Sam Mitchell moving from Hawthorn to join West Coast.

This is a great trade by Hawthorn as they have replace one Mitchell with another Mitchell that can add grunt to their midfield. He averaged 12 contested possessions and 6 tackles last season so he is not afraid to win his own ball and do the hard work.

He can also go up forward and kick goals like he did in this year’s Grand Final so he should prove to be a valuable asset for the Hawks.

He is only 23 so he should be at Hawthorn for a long time and help Hawthorn climb back up for another premiership in the near future.
