Hawthorn has been forced to make one late change as it prepares to take on Sydney at the SCG on Friday night.

Ned Reeves has been unable to prove his fitness in time after rolling his ankle during the club’s captain’s run on Thursday.

Jonathon Ceglar will replace the young ruckman.

“We gave him every chance to see if he could get up for tonight,” Head of Football Rob McCartney said.

“But, in a fitness test later today, it was decided he wouldn’t play.”
