Just days after undergoing surgery to determine his cancer treatment, Hawthorn star Jarryd Roughead will join his teammates in Brisbane for Saturday's clash against the Lions at the Gabba.

Roughead had surgery this week after a scan revealed the melanoma he had removed last year had returned and spread to other parts of his body.

Roughead was keen to make the trip to watch close friend Jordan Lewis play his 250th AFL game and flew out from Melbourne airport with the team on Friday morning.
