Suns coach frustrated over war on Ablett

SUNS coach Guy McKenna says he is frustrated by the lack of progress of discussions with umpires boss Jeff Gieschen about the tactics being used to stop champion midfielder Gary Ablett.

The Brownlow medal favourite, playing in game No.250 against the Demons at Metricon Stadium on Saturday night, was kept to a season-low 19 possessions by Jordie McKenzie who constantly pushed the boundaries of what was legal by his close checking.

"I'm in constant conversation with Jeff Gieschen and have been for probably the last six-to-eight weeks," McKenna said. "It's a work in progress."

Melbourne coach Neil Craig said he was okay with Ablett's treatment.
