Aliir Aliir ruled out of grand final
Sydney has ruled Aliir Aliir out of the grand final.
The young defender was unable to get through training on Wednesday after injuring his knee in a marking contest against Geelong.
The Sudanese refugee shaped as one of the feel-good stories of this year’s decider.
Swans Head of Football Tom Harley said it was a tough situation for the club.
‘Aliir has done all he could to give himself a chance to play, (but) unfortunately he was unable to complete training and therefore can’t be considered for selection this week,’ Harley said.
Co-captain Jarrad McVeigh (calf) and Rising Star winner Callum Mills (hamstring) both remain in contention for a return.
