Geelong will be awaiting the results of Joel Selwood’s finger surgery after the Cats captain sustained an injury to a joint in his left hand during Thursday’s loss to Port Adelaide, per The Age.

The Cats will be sweating on the procedure as their leader is now in doubt to play in the club’s must-win semi-final next week.

Geelong will face the winner of Saturday’s clash between West Coast and Collingwood, two clubs that the Cats lost to in the home and away season.

The club released a statement in regard to Selwood’s health, claiming their captain ‘‘will aim to play in Geelong’s semi-final next week’’.

Geelong coach Chris Scott is also under the spotlight following his half-time interaction with the umpires.

Scott looked to be urging the umpires to throw the ball up instead of bouncing it, with the Cats coach denying suggestions that inappropriately directed his actions, stating he was attempting to be heard above the loud crowd noise.
