Geelong will put Joel Selwood’s injured finger to the test later this week in his bid to play the semi-final against Collingwood, while Jack Steven has been ruled out.
Selwood dislocated his finger late in the loss to Port Adelaide on Thursday and had surgery in Queensland the day after.
“The aim or objective of that operation was to stabilise his finger, and we all know Joel very well. We have seen him over many years, he has been out training today, which is exciting,” Cats football boss Simon Lloyd said.
“We know what his mental fortitude is like so he will give himself every opportunity to play.
