Team Selection: Experienced Trio return for Elimination Final

The Canberra side to take centre stage against Sydney University in tomorrow's first elimination final has been selected.

Canberra will be bolstered by the addition of a trio of experienced NEAFL players, with Alex Smout, Ben Halse and ruckman Nathan Richards named.

Thomas Faul (hamstring) and No.1 ruckman Cameron Milne (concussion) were ruled out yesterday whilst Nathan Oakes has been omitted.

Nathan Oakes, Nick Collins and Luke Robertson have been named as the emergencies.

Canberra and Sydney Uni have met four times in 2018, most recently in round 20 at the Blacktown International Sportspark, with Sydney taking away a 47-point win.
