Hawks remain unsure on Gunston in AFL

Hawthorn remain unsure whether forward Jack Gunston will recover in time for Friday night’s AFL preliminary final against Fremantle.

Gunston missed last weekend’s semi-final win over Adelaide with an ankle injury and was not in a group of six players who flew to Perth on Wednesday, a day ahead of their teammates.

Back-up ruckman Jonathon Ceglar was in the group, along with captain Luke Hodge, Jordan Lewis, Shaun Burgoyne, Isaac Smith and Jarryd Roughead.

The Hawks also flew Smith across a day early for the qualifying final loss to West Coast as part of his speedy recovery from a knee injury.

“He (Gunston) is in the bracket of seeing how he pulled up today and they’ll obviously test him,” Lewis said at the airport.
