Hawthorn's Jarryd Roughead says some at the club doubted he could handle a ruckman's workload this season - but not him. ''I don't think everyone was real keen on me doing it, just because of the workload and what happened [an Achilles injury] last year,'' Roughead said. It was his own conviction that eventually persuaded the Hawks hierarchy. ''I went to them and said '… I reckon I can do it','' the 25-year-old (right) said.
