Midfielder Dan Hannebery is expected to be fit to take his place in the side for next Saturday’s elimination final against Greater Western Sydney at the SCG.

Hannebery sat out majority of the final quarter in Saturday night’s loss to Hawthorn due to a heavy collision with ruckman Ben McEvoy during the third quarter.

Head of Football Tom Harley said he expected the 27-year-old to be lining up against the Giants.

“During the third quarter he got a heavy corky when his quad clashed with Ben McEvoy’s leg,” Harley said.

“He wasn’t really able to get going after the three-quarter time break so he sat the quarter out which was disappointing for him.

“With the bye this week it gives him plenty of time to get himself right and he’ll be available for the first final against the Giants.”

Lance Franklin and Luke Parker are also expected to line up against the Giants after overcoming groin injuries.

The pair were late withdrawals from the final match of the home and away season after failing to prove their fitness in time for the match.

“We gave them every opportunity until two hours before the game but unfortunately they weren’t able to get up and play,” Harley said.

“The risk of re-injuring and therefore jeopardising the first final was far too great. 

“They are making all the right steps this week in readiness to train next week and be available for the first final against the Giants.

“As it stands now we expect both Luke and Lance to play unless anything unforeseen happens.”

Key forward Sam Reid is continuing to near a return to AFL and is expected to line up for the Swans first NEAFL final in a fortnight.
