Geelong coach Chris Scott has suggested that skipper Joel Selwood could be used in a new position towards the end of the season.

Scott said that as younger players in the side continue their development, it is possible Selwood could be used in the forward line.

“We feel as though we’ve got now a much bigger group than that that can go through there (the midfield). We’re not envisaging that he will play 100 per cent in that position. The options have opened up a little bit,” Scott said.

“If we had two of him, we’d play one forward. I think that is a reasonable indication to the way we are thinking.”

Selwood booted 30 goals in 2013 and 24 last season, proving that he is more than handy when thrown forward.
