The playing future of Gold Coast Suns star Jaeger O’Meara is still unconfirmed as Hawthorn and Gold Coast debate over his trade value, with only hours left in the AFL trade period.
Suns chairman Tony Cochrane rejected an offer from the Hawks’ yesterday for picks 10 and 48, saying that offer is nowhere near good enough for the 22-year-old midfielder.
If a deal cannot be reached, O’Meara will be forced to nominate for the draft where Essendon hold the first overall pick.
