Swans’ brutal call on young gun, Cats back in Holmes

AFL, AFL finals, AFL grand final, featured

Sydney Swans youngster Logan McDonald has been dropped from the grand final, in a shock selection call.

The 20-year old key forward, taken with pick 4 in the 2020 draft, had managed just one goal and 10 possessions across the Swans’ two finals, but had played 17 of the Swans’ 24 matches to date in 2022.

The omission is the Swans’ only change heading into the grand final, with fellow tall Sam Reid named despite battling a groin problem all week.

McDonald has been replaced in the 22 by Hayden McLean, who is playing his first match at AFL level since Round 8.

Meanwhile, Geelong are unchanged for the second successive final, with Max Holmes named in the 22 despite suffering a hamstring injury in the preliminary final.
