Joel Selwood has been sidelined from pre-season training after undergoing minor hamstring surgery in early November, it is expected Selwood will return to full training in January.
“I had a minor hamstring operation a couple of weeks ago so I will just make sure that I get that right and then go from there.
“So before Christmas I will be limited in what I do but I will be working behind the scenes.” Joel Selwood via Geelong Advertiser
Selwood averaged 20.4 Disposals, 3.3 Marks & 3.9 Tackles from 23 games for the Cats in 2019.
AFL FANTASY TAKE
The news is not so good for those that identified Joel Selwood as a possible cheap salary option in AFL Fantasy classic, the importance for players to complete a full pre-season cannot be emphasised enough and at the age 31 any type of injury can be a major setback.
Although the injury is minor, the progress and return to training for Selwood needs to be monitored over the pre-season.
Selwood averaged 78.7pts from 20 games in the 2019 H&A season & 101.3pts from 3 Finals.
