Hawthorn Update: James Sicily

James Sicily continues to progress well over pre-season after missing the 2021 AFL season. 

He ruptured his ACL in 2020 and subsequently underwent reconstructive surgery. 

Hawthorn senior coach Sam Mitchell provided an update this week on the pre-season for Sicily including reducing his loads back at the start of pre-season and a strong training output this year. 

“James has been really strong,”

“I guess he’s missed 18 months or thereabouts, a bit longer than that possibly,”

AFL News on Twitter @aflratings “Right at the start of pre-season pre-Christmas
he was a little bit limited with some of his jumping and things like that.”

“But we haven’t taken him out of any training since Christmas and he’s been really strong performer.”

“In what we’re trying to achieve, I think he’s going to be an important player for us.” Mitchell said.
