Dockers to host AFL preliminary final against reigning champions.
The Swans sprung the biggest surprise of AFL’s preliminary final week by naming Gary Rohan a week after he was dropped following a poor qualifying final performance.
Rohan will be joined by Ben McGlynn – who missed the semi-final win through injury – in the team with Kurt Tippett (knee) and Tom Mitchell (ankle) both injured.
McGlynn is a good news story after he missed the Swans 2012 triumph due to an injury suffered during the finals campaign.
Fremantle have made just one changes for their historic home preliminary final against Sydney with newly minted All Australian Michael Johnson returning to the line-up for Tom Sheridan.
