Aussie Rules: Cats welcome back Rohan and Stanley

Geelong coach Chris Scott says both Gary Rohan and Rhys Stanley are set to return to action when the Cats take on the Western Bulldogs on Friday night.

Geelong are priced at 21/20 to beat the Bulldogs and having both players back in the side should give their chances a big boost.

Rohan has been struggling with back and hip issues that forced him to miss the start of the 2022 AFL campaign. He returned in round 10, only to pick up a hamstring injury which kept him out of last week’s win over Adelaide.

However he is back fit again and should face the Bulldogs along with Stanley, who has missed the last two games with an ankle injury.

"I think Gary Rohan will play, I think there's a bit more certainty around that," Scott told reporters. "Those two (Rohan and Stanley) are likely but really the bulk of the guys missing at the moment will be a post-bye proposition.”

Quartet to wait

Scott was referring to Patrick Dangerfield, ruckman Jon Ceglar, defender Jack Henry and Sam Menegola , who will come back into contention against West Coast on 18th June.

"We just need to think through exactly how we reintroduce those guys,” he added. "Quite a few of them would be OK to play next week, when we have a bye, so they'll be jumping out of their skins.

"The quandary for us having five, six guys available and bringing them all back at once does present a challenge for cohesion."
