Hawthorn premiership star Jarryd Roughead (pictured)  has set his sights on a return to the Hawks lineup in the 2017 pre season competition.

The 29 year old, a 4 time premiership winner with the club missed the entirety of the 2016 season, firstly with a knee injury which was followed by a recurrence of the melanoma that had previously kept him out of the game.

There’s no more committed player than the Hawks forward although at this stage, although at this stage just playing again will be a highlight in itself.
