After a week of speculation about his future, Gary Ablett has responded by putting on a clinic against Hawthorn at Metricon Stadium.
Ablett had 36 disposals (14 contested), 10 clearances, 8 inside 50s, 4 tackles and 2.1.
There has been plenty of commentary on Ablett's commitment to the Gold Coast Sun with many holding the opinion that he was 'disinterested' last week against GWS.
The further speculation about Ablett returning to Geelong at the seasons end also gained traction during the week after his interview with The Footy Show.
Ablett showed his class today returning to full form after a sluggish start to the season.
Gaz has only averaged 22 disposals this season before todays performance, well down on his previous seasons stats.
Ablett was not alone today with many of his teammates rising to the occasion to dismantle the Hawks.
The Suns 21.13 (139) knocked off Hawthorn 7.11 (53) in what caps off a round of upsets.
