Hawthorn spearhead Jarryd Roughead has returned to the Hawks’ line-up following his skin cancer scare.
Roughead underwent surgery to remove a melanoma from his bottom lip in the week leading up to Hawthorn’s round 14 clash against Collingwood.
The 28-year-old sat out two games before receiving the all-clear and comes back into the side to face Sydney at ANZ Stadium on Saturday night.
He replaces Taylor Duryea as the only change to the team that thumped Fremantle by 72 points in Launceston.
The Swans lost ruckman Mike Pyke to a knee injury and defender Jeremy Laidler to an ankle injury for the grand final rematch.
Sydney made a total of four changes with Ted Richards, Craig Bird, Brandon Jack and Toby Nankervis all coming into the side.
