Returning Sunday

September 12, 2020
O'Meara (hand) is included in the starting lineup for Sunday's match against the Saints.
ANALYSIS
O'Meara is returning to action Sunday after missing the last four matches with a broken hand he suffered against the Eagles in Round 12. O'Meara is one of the team leaders in disposals as he averages nearly 19 a game and should provide a nice boost on offense for the two remaining regular-season contests.

Out Saturday with broken hand
FHawthorn Hawks
Hand
August 18, 2020
O'Meara will miss Saturday's match versus Port Adelaide due to a broken hand, Marc McGowan of the AFL's official site reports.
ANALYSIS
O'Meara managed to play out the remainder of last Sunday's match with West Coast despite suffering the injury in the first quarter. Unfortunately, he will require a procedure to fix the fracture and it will cost him at least one match, though more may certainly be on tap.
Big showing in loss
FHawthorn Hawks
July 25, 2020
O'Meara scored one goal to go with 25 disposals (21 kicks, four handballs) in addition to making five marks and five tackles during Saturday's 60-53 loss to Sydney.
ANALYSIS
O'Meara hasn't been the most consistent of players, but he's added to the score in three straight matches and dipped below 20 disposals just twice all season. He'll need to keep up the pace in order to help the Hawks break a four-match losing streak.
Instant impact in return Thursday
FHawthorn Hawks
June 18, 2020
O'Meara ended with 23 disposals (14 kicks, nine handballs), five marks, three tackles and one goal in Thursday's 71-39 victory over Richmond.
ANALYSIS
O'Meara returned after missing the previous game due to a facial fracture suffered at training. Despite not being listed in the starting 18, O'Meara stamped his class on the game immediately with the Hawks midfield dominating from the opening bounce. O'Meara racked up 23 disposals in his return and will look to build off this performance next week against the Kangaroos.
Ready to roll

June 17, 2020
O'Meara (eye) is officially in the lineup for Round 3 versus the Tigers.
ANALYSIS
While O'Meara is among the 22, he's not in the starting 18, which may suggest the team will limit him slightly. Still, conditioning shouldn't be an issue, given the nature of his injury, so his workload should land near the normal range. In the opener versus Brisbane, O'Meara tallied 23 disposals (12 handballs, 11 kicks) and added five tackles and four marks to his line.
On track for Round 3 return
FHawthorn Hawks
Eye
June 15, 2020
O'Meara (eye) is expected to be available Thursday for Hawthorn's Round 3 match with Richmond, Marc McGowan of AFL.au reports.
ANALYSIS
O'Meara, who sat out Hawthorn's Round 2 loss to Geelong with a facial fracture, is set to resume training in full Tuesday. If all goes well during that session, O'Meara will presumably get the green light to suit up once Friday arrives.
