Selwood will play as Cats prepare to take their chances: Dangerfield

No one at Geelong expects their skipper Joel Selwood to miss Saturday night's semi-final against Collingwood after he had surgery last Friday to fix a dislocated finger, however the premiership Cat will need to pass a fitness test to be selected.

His teammate Patrick Dangerfield joked that Selwood would need to have his leg cut off to miss the must-win semi-final and he expected him to play in what will be the three-time premiership Cat's 32nd final, placing him behind Michael Tuck and Shaun Burgoyne for most finals played.

He said the Cats remained in the hunt and he expected them to bounce back hard against the Magpies.

"It's important when those moments come, we grasp them and stand up to them," Dangerfield said.

"We have to execute when we have the momentum in play."

Dangerfield said he understood the narrative around the club’s finals record and accepted they would like to win more finals but he said it was important to remain in contention each year and Geelong were proud they had managed to do that over the past 15 years.
