Cats rule out three from clash with Bombers

Scott Selwood won’t return for the Cats’ ‘country match’ clash with Essendon

GEELONG has ruled out injured trio Scott Selwood, Brandan Parfitt and Daniel Menzel from a return against Essendon on Saturday.

Selwood continues to manage a back injury that saw him a late withdrawal in last week’s win against Collingwood

While Selwood missed Thursday’s main session, Parfitt completed straight line running away from teammates as he works his way back from a stress reaction in his foot.

Coach Chris Scott admitted Menzel was in doubt for a return in the short term, with the Bombers clash set to be his fourth week on the sidelines.

New cult hero Esava Ratugolea was on light duties ahead of the six-day turnaround.
