The West Coast Eagles have reached agreement with Hawthorn over a trade involving young forward Tyler Brockman.
The 20-year-old Brockman, recruited by the Hawks from Subiaco three years ago, asked to return to his home State and to play with the Eagles.
Today the Eagles agreed to hand over selections 44 and 63 in next month’s National Draft to facilitate the deal, despite having the option to take the uncontracted Brockman through to the pre-season draft where they have the first pick.
“We were keen on Tyler in his initial draft year so it is very pleasing to have this deal done that now brings him to the club," List Manager Rohan O’Brien said.
“Doing the deal at this stage means that Tyler can be here for the start of pre-season and he has certainty as he prepares to bring his young family home."
Brockman is a lively and highly skilled forward, who kicked 23 goals from his 26 games with the Hawks.
He will look forward to joining long-time friend Liam Ryan at the Eagles.
