Selwood a confirmed starter for knockout semi-final

Joel Selwood will play Geelong's knockout semi-final against Collingwood on Saturday night, despite finger surgery in the past week.

"He looked pretty good to me [at Friday training]," Cats coach Chris Scott said on Friday.

"We had done all our planning around him playing and so for us it’s play on, nothing has really shifted from our original thinking."

Selwood injured his finger in the elimination final loss to Port Adelaide last Thursday and had surgery the day after.

The Cats skipper is no stranger to playing under duress or following injury.
