Who's in the mix to face the Hawks?

Sean Darcy was managed for the RAC derby and will look to return in round 17.

Fremantle take on Hawthorn on Saturday in Launceston at University of Tasmania Stadium.

Here’s who could come in for the clash. 

Sean Darcy
Senior coach Ross Lyon confirmed that Sean Darcy is set to return after being managed for the RAC Derby against West Coast. Darcy’s return means veteran ruckman Aaron Sandilands can be managed for the long trip to Tasmania.
From five AFL appearances this season, Darcy has averaged 32.8 hitouts per game.

Stephen Hill
If fit, Stephen Hill is a likely inclusion to face Hawthorn. The star midfielder picked up a minor hamstring injury against Melbourne in round 14 and he trained with the team on Tuesday. Hill is listed as a test and will need to get through Thursday’s training session to be available for selection.
