Hawthorn’s boom recruit for 2017 played just six games because of a patella injury, one that was different to that which sidelined him for two full seasons while at Gold Coast. But a brilliant 36-possession game in round two before the injury and a classy 25-possession, 11-tackle effort in the final game of the season has the Hawks as confident as ever that the midfielder will become a huge weapon in 2018 and beyond. His ability to work hard both ways and to influence games as an inside and outside mid is exciting. How he partners with Tom Mitchell is a talking point for Hawthorn heading into the new season. O’Meara returned for the start of pre-season in excellent shape.
