Friendly fire

#AFL #MelbourneFC

After recovering well from post season shoulder surgery Mitch Hannan is now back training strongly with the main group and looking to have a strong impact for the Dees in season 2017.

Losing his two front teeth on Tuesday night is all part of the AFL journey, as Melbourne’s trainers, coaches and a few players searched unsuccessfully for Mitch’s dislodged two front teeth after they were knocked out in a training drill on Tuesday.

The 22-year-old came off second best in a tackling drill when he copped a stray elbow from teammate Pat McKenna towards the end of the session.

Hannan’s two teeth were partially dislodged from the force of McKenna’s elbow and he was taken to visit the dentist at the end of the training session.

“His two front teeth – half of them are gone so he should’ve been wearing a mouthguard so there’s a tip,” teammate Christian Petracca said.

“The number one rule, especially in juniors, was no mouthguard, no play.

The Dees first pick in the 2017 National draft didn’t seem to mind to much about the whole situation as seen bye this photo he posted on social media shortly after the incident occurred.
