Heeney ready to resume with AFL Swans

Gun Sydney Swans youngster Isaac Heeney has recovered from the broken jaw he suffered when allegedly assaulted last month and will join his teammates when pre-season training gets underway on Monday.

Heeney, 19, required surgery to insert four plates and 16 screws after he was felled by a single blow from behind by an unknown attacker while on holiday in Hong Kong.

However, he has made a full recovery and will train with the Swans’ first to four-year players at Lakeside Oval on Monday, albeit in a limited capacity as he manages some minor knee tendinitis, a club spokesman says.

The Swans young brigade will have a short skills session followed by rigorous physical assessments by the club’s conditioning staff.

Off-season recruits Michael Talia, Callum Sinclair and Colin O’Riordan will also train with their new teammates for the first time.

The rest of Sydney’s list will start their pre-season campaign on December 1.
