Midfielder Billy Hartung is back in Hawthorn’s side for their AFL semi-final against the Western Bulldogs at the MCG.
The Hawks recalled Hartung and forward James Sicily, who missed last week’s epic qualifying-final loss to Geelong.
The Bulldogs have recalled Toby McLean for Lin Jong, who has a broken collarbone, while Sydney have included Jeremy Laidler and Toby Nankervis for Saturday’s semi-final against an unchanged Adelaide at the SCG.
