Hawthorn veteran Grant Birchall has been named for his first AFL Game

Four-time Hawthorn premiership player Grant Birchall says he is ready to put a “tough two years” behind him as he is all set to play his first AFL game in 741 days against Fremantle on Saturday.

Birchall, 31, last played at AFL level in Round 15, 2017 before getting his PCL fractured and has had a series of knee setbacks since as well as calf problems this year.
