The Sydney Swans have made one change to their side to face St Kilda on Saturday night at the SCG.
Key forward Sam Reid (groin) failed to prove his fitness at training on Thursday and will be replaced in the side by big man Callum Sinclair.
Longmire said Reid was given every chance to take on the Saints.
“Sam tightened up early in the first quarter last week and actually pulled up ok during the week,” Longmire said.
“Unfortunately he couldn’t do a lot at training today so that means he is out.”
Sinclair has played 11 matches this season and shown strong form playing for the NEAFL side in recent weeks.
Longmire said the 200cm big man deserved his recall to the senior side.
“He has been really good for our reserves and kicked nine goals over the last couple of weeks,” Longmire told Centrum Team Selection.
“His form in the ruck was solid for us before he went out of the team and we know he is a good marking target for us in the front half so he gets another opportunity.
“He was actually in good form before he went out of the team.”
Will Hayward, Brandon Jack and Jeremy Laidler have been named as the three emergencies for the match.
