Hawthorn forward Mitch Lewis has been ruled out for the remainder of the 2024 season after injuring his ACL.

The 25-year-old suffered the injury after landing awkwardly following a collision in the final quarter of the Hawks’ Round 17 loss to Geelong on Saturday. 
Executive General Manager of Football Rob McCartney said scans had confirmed the club’s worst fears.

“Our thoughts are all with Mitch at this point in time,” McCartney said.
"He has worked so hard to get his body right and return to AFL level and this injury was a cruel blow.

“While this will spell an end to his season, we are confident that with expert guidance of our medical team and the strength of Mitch’s character that he will work his way through the immediate challenges that lie ahead.

“Only being 25-years of age, I’m extremely confident that following his rehab Mitch has a bright future ahead in the brown and gold and is an integral part of what we are building at our football club.

“Most importantly, our focus at present is to support Mitch and wrap our arms around him.”
