Roughead supporting Hawks from sidelines

Absent Hawthorn star Jarryd Roughead will continue to support his teammates from the sidelines for the AFL club’s match in Brisbane.

Cyril Rioli said the forward, who has been withdrawn from selection as he battles a recurrence of a melanoma, would travel to the Gabba for Saturday’s round 10 game due to a milestone.

“His good mate Jordan Lewis is playing his 250th, so I don’t think Roughy would want to miss that,” he said on Wednesday.
