Hawthorn ‘seriously considering’ making Jarryd Roughead captain, Mitch Cleary says on Sportsday

It’s been one of the feel-good stories of the summer and it could be about to go to another level.

Hawthorn is ‘seriously’ considering making Jarryd Roughead captain this season, Mitch Cleary has revealed on Sportsday.

The popular forward recently got the all-clear to resume his AFL career after a battle with skin cancer.

Isaac Smith and Liam Shiels are also said to be in the mix to replace Luke Hodge in the role.

Jordan Lewis had been considered a strong contender to be the next captain of the Hawks, but is now with Melbourne.
