Former Swans captain Jarrad McVeigh is set to be available to play for the first time since last years' AFL grand final.
The winless Swans are set to receive a timely boost, with the former captain returning to full fitness and will be available for selection this week, barring any injury set back.
Speaking in this week's HCF injury update, Head of Football Tom Harley confirmed the 32-year-old was available for selection after recovering from a calf and hamstring injury, which has sidelined him so far this season.
Barring set back, the Swans should see him in action again either for the round 7 clash with the Lions, or the NEAFL curtain raiser.
“That would be nice – if Macca gets up and plays this week,” he said.
“He’s had a significant block of training now, he’s been close for the past couple of weeks.
“We’ve got a final training session on the Friday then the game on Sunday so there’s plenty of time for Macca to press his case.
“He’ll play this week – he’s available – with regards to where he plays it will obviously be determined later in the week.
“It’ll be great to have him back as he’s such an integral part of the team.”
We can certainly do with his class, but lets wait until he has some form and fitness under his belt. We all know what happened in the grand final last year.
