GOODBYE GAZ: Ablett traded to Cats

Gary Ablett has returned to his old club Geelong after the Gold Coast Suns finally came to a trade agreement.

The two-time Brownlow medalist and former skipper was traded to the Cats on the AFL deadline day on Thursday, along with draft pick 24 and a 2018 round 4 selection.

In return the Suns earned the No.19 draft pick, as well as Geelong's future round two pick.

Meanwhile the Suns also gave away pick No.2 to Fremantle in exchange for Lachie Weller and pick No.41.

Brandon Matera also moved to the Dockers in a separate trade involving Fremantle's third-round pick in 2018.
