“Tom has requested time off from his football commitments due to personal circumstances,” Hawthorn said in a statement.

“Hawthorn is fully supportive of Tom’s request and remains in regular communication with Tom to provide him with any support required.

“The club asks that Tom’s privacy is respected at this time and will provide a further update when available.“

The 29-year-old joined the Hawks for the 2019 season from Greater Western Sydney.

He played 21 games in 2019 and 14 in 2021. The hard-running No.1 pick from the 2009 draft moved from Melbourne to the Giants in 2011.

Scully’s teammate Jonathon Patton is also currently away from the club, having been stood down for allegedly sending inappropriate messages to women.
