Geelong still remains hopeful that ruckman Hamish McIntosh will be available for next week’s preliminary final against the Sydney Swans, should the Cats make it, despite undergoing knee surgery on Tuesday.
McIntosh suffered knee soreness during the qualifying final against Hawthorn and was subbed out of the match.
Earlier in the week, Geelong coach Chris Scott ruled McIntosh out of the Cats’ semi-final clash with North Melbourne, but only confirmed today to AFL.com.au that the 30-year-old went under the knife on Tuesday.
“He just laboured too badly on that sore knee on the weekend, so we’ve got to do something about it,” Scott said.
“We’re hopeful that Hamish can go through a rehab plan over the next week, week and a half, to get himself in a position, if we’re good enough to win on Friday night, to play the following week.”
