Tommy Walsh has been dropped to the reserves by Sydney Swans coach, John Longmire.
The Kerryman was elevated to the seniors last week but has paid the price for a tepid performance against the Fremantle Dockers in which he accumulated just five possessions.
He also blew an opportunity to score in the final quarter, kicking out on the full when any score may have had an impact on the result which finished in a draw.
Walsh will now return to the reserves.
There has been more positive news for compatriot Marty Clarke who has been recalled for Collingwood.
The talented Down-man has enjoyed an excellent 2013 but sat out last week’s win over Geelong through illness.
Coach Nathan Buckley has overlooked Clarke’s Irish team-mate Caolan Mooney once again however.
Mooney scored a goal in the Magpies’ reserves win over Geelong last weekend in the VFL.
Setanta Ó hAilpín is named among the emergencies for GWS Giants after missing a couple of weeks for personal reasons.
The Giants are a 16/1 chance to upset West Coast Eagles in Sydney on Saturday.
Tyrone-born Aidan Corr has held his spot for GWS.
Meanwhile, Pearce Hanley will line up against compatriot Zach Tuohy as Brisbane and Carlton go head-to-head at The Gabba.
Hanley has been in sparkling form and the Lions will be looking to capitalise on their upset win over Essendon last weekend.
The Blues go into the match as favourites after winning three of their last four but the Lions will be hard to beat at home in Brisbane.
