Confirmed trade

Hawthorn champion Luke Hodge has been traded to the Brisbane Lions.

The trade sees Hodge and pick 44 go to the Lions for pick 43 and 75. 

This effectively means Hodge is swapped for pick 75. 

Hodge shocked everybody by announcing he would come out of retirement to move north and play for the Lions.

This trade is very similar the trades that saw Sam Mitchell and Jordan Lewis depart the Hawks last year.

The Lions will be busy today with potential moves involving Josh Schache and Charlie Cameron still to play out.
