Team Selection: Eynaud named for Canberra debut

Nick Eynaud will make his Canberra debut this weekend against the Brisbane Lions at Phillip Oval.

Crossing from the Sydney Swans Academy during the off-season, Eynaud was held out of the opening fortnight of the season due to a finger injury he sustained in the pre-season but returned through the AFL Canberra competition last month.


But with his injury troubles now behind him, the medium-sized will now get his chance to impress in his new colours alongside Jonathan Spina and Adam Kinasch, who both return to the NEAFL following injury.


Playing-coach Kade Klemke has been rested whilst Riley Budd and Donald Roberts will be sidelined through injury.
