Aussie Rules: Selwood to miss Lions clash

Geelong coach Chris Scott says he will continue to rotate his players from week to week which means Joel Selwood will be rested against Brisbane Lions on Friday night.

The Cats are priced at 11/1 to win the 2022 AFL grand final and Scott plans to fully utilise his list as they go in search of the flag in the campaign ahead.

List strength in depth

Scott is keen to manage the workload of players for what will be another long, hard season and he believes he has the list to pull it off.

Shaun Higgins was rested for the clash against the Sydney Swans in round two and now it will be the turn of Selwood to watch on from the sidelines.

The 33-year-old revealed going in to the new season that he does not expect to play every game, so it will come as no surprise.

Patrick Dangerfield or Tom Stewart will deputise as captain against the Lions and Scott is happy to rotate.

Scott keen to rotate

"It's something that's been earmarked over a number of weeks now," Scott told reporters ahead of the game.

"We've got some guys that we are going to be proactive with and they're not going to play games even when they're in good health.

"We want to have them at their best deep into the season and we think we've got a broad group of players that can all contribute, and we want to use them. We don't want to get stuck with the same 22 every week."
