SYDNEY are set to unveil their new recruits Isaac Heeney and Jack Hiscox along with rookie Lewis Melican on Friday night.
The trio will line up for their first competitive game in the red and white against the Brisbane Lions at Coffs Harbour.
The squad also includes three players yet to play a senior game at AFL level with Toby Nankervis, Daniel Robinson (a New South Wales scholarship selection in 2013) and Harry Marsh named.
Four players recruited from the Swans’ academy have been named in the squad: Jack Hiscox, Abe Davis, Brandon Jack and Heeney.
The Swans will be without star forward duo Lance Franklin, whose troublesome right knee is being managed, and Kurt Tippett, who suffered a lower leg setback in Friday’s intra-club match.
Adam Goodes has also been rested after a standout performance in the intra-club, with defender Ted Richards (hamstring), Jarrad McVeigh (calf) and Jake Lloyd (elbow) others missing.
Meanwhile, the Lions have resisted naming former Geelong midfielder Allen Christensen.
Defenders Pearce Hanley (hip) and Matt Maguire are other senior Lions missing.
Brisbane has named a strong line-up including big names Tom Rockliff, Dayne Beams, Matthew Leuenberger and Jack Redden.
