“HAWTHORN key forward Mitch Lewis is nearing a return to full fitness after missing the end of last season, but his new partner in attack Mabior Chol won't join the main group at Waverley Park until after Christmas.

Chol was traded from Gold Coast to the Hawks late on deadline day, in a deal that also netted pick No.62 but cost a future second-round pick to secure the key forward.

The 26-year-old started training with Sam Mitchell's squad last week but is confined to a modified program this side of January due to a knee injury he sustained in the Suns' VFL Grand Final win over Werribee in September. “

I will back Burge and our medical team to devise a preseason program to get the best out of our players for a long and arduous season. This will differ for some players depending on what their bodies can take at this stage of their development and whether they have an injury history like CJ.
I have a lot of confidence in Burge.

Yeah it’s not ideal but it’s fine, if he’s still struggling mid January then it might be a little concerning.

Like to see Chol play as the second ruck and push forward in the Hale role.

I wonder if he will be with the forwards or the rucks/midfielders over summer once he returns from injury.

Pretty sure I read or heard maybe his manager say he'll be playing as the deeper tall fwd with mitch Lewis pushing up higher.. so I'd say with the fwds

"I am self-aware of the lack of consistency I have had in the past and that’s something that I really want to improve on,” he told the Herald Sun.
"I want to go out there with every game knowing that I will be in the game for 120 minutes.
That’s something that Sammy and I have been speaking really closely about."
