Premiership Hawk attracting interest from Victorian rival


Isaac Smith’s future at Hawthorn is up in the air.

SEN’s Sam Edmund reported in September that the Hawks are keen to keep Smith and have offered him a two-year contract extension.

As a restricted free agent, the 31-year-old wingman can join a club of his choice if an attractive offer comes his way.

AFL Media’s Mitch Cleary is reporting that Melbourne has made strong enquiries for the triple premiership Hawk.

“Isaac Smith is after a two-year extension,” Cleary told AFL Media’s The Trade Desk.

“There’s every chance that still could come at the Hawthorn Football Club, but there’s other clubs starting to make enquiries.

“Of those, I think Melbourne is the club asking strongest right now for Isaac Smith.”

Smith has played 210 games for Hawthorn since being drafted as a 21-year-old with the 19th pick overall in the 2010 National Draft.

Hawthorn recently made calls on several veterans with Ben Stratton, Paul Puopolo and Ricky Henderson all retiring while Shaun Burgoyne agreed to play on in 2021.
