SCOTT Selwood is continuing to build towards an AFL return after getting through his first match without time restrictions unscathed.

The luckless midfielder was among Geelong’s best in its VFL win over Collingwood at GMHBA Stadium in what was his third game back from a hamstring injury suffered in mid-March.

“I’m feeling OK at the contest and feeling fit enough,” Selwood said.

“It’s more so just getting my hands back on it (the ball) and being clearer with it, so, it will grow.

“Usually the second game, you feel a bit more lethargic than normal. After that, you’re pretty much good to go.

“It’s more about finding touch, getting back to playing your role and doing those sort of things.

“Your mindset changes from “am I fit?” to “how can I play the best footy I can?”

However, Selwood says he still has some work to do to be AFL ready.

“I probably still need to clean-up (my game) a little bit more,” he said.

“Of course, I’d take the opportunity if it came. But, at the same time, I need to keep developing my game and keep getting better.

“It was good to get out there and have a win.”
