Clarkson welcomes Roughead’s return

Hawthorn coach Alastair Clarkson is delighted to have key forward Jarryd Roughead back in his team for Saturday night’s AFL grand final rematch against Sydney.

Roughead has been cleared to return to action at ANZ Stadium, little more than two weeks after having a melanoma removed from his lip.

“It is such a delicate thing that he has been through over the course of the last two or three weeks,” said Clarkson.

“It has pretty much been out of our hands from a footy point of view.”
