On Monday Longmire said, Franklin, who last played in Round 23, 2019, would line up this week after a promising return in the Swan’s reserves this weekend having overcome several injury issues.

“Lance pulled up fine and we expect him to play this week. It’s good to get him back in the team,” Longmire told reporters.

“He has done a lot of work since August last year, he has done a lot of strength work and he has been training for quite a while now so it is great to get him back into the team.

“He has got himself in pretty good nick quite a few times, and he just hasn’t quite got there so it is great to be able to have him back available to play, ready to go.”

“We will train here (at the SCG) this week and he will be right to go on Saturday.”
