Hawthorn has committed to re-drafting Chad Wingard and Cooper Stephens in this month’s AFL rookie draft after the pair was delisted on Thursday.

Wingard has played 218 games across his 12-year career and is currently working through rehab on serious achillies injury sustained earlier this year.

Stephens joined the Hawks through the 2022 trade period after spending three seasons with Geelong where he played seven games in his final year.

The changes will allow the club to utilise all selections acquired prior and during the recent trade period leading into this month’s AFL national draft.
