Geelong skipper Joel Selwood says its time for the Cats to move past the hurt of their preliminary final thumping by Sydney.The Cats 2016 premiership aspirations were crushed by a dominant Swans side in the 37-point defeat that Selwood said hit the club hard.We all felt it - the players, the coaches and even the community - we thought we let each other down a little bit, Selwood told reporters on Monday.(But) its time to pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and get to work.It hurt, it hurt everyone, so thats why were looking forward to getting back to work.Selwood and Patrick Dangerfield could barely have done any more for their side against Sydney with 39 possessions apiece.The Cats support cast for their dynamic midfield duo was largely disappointing, but Selwood denied the performance had exposed significant weaknesses in the clubs playing stocks.(Dangerfield and I) can do more and they can more ... thats a part of the consistency that weve got to put together, he said.We didnt play well on the night ... its not so much a reality check.It just showed that if youre not on in AFL footy, no matter who you play, that anyone can take it up to anyone.Geelong were among the busiest clubs during trade period, shipping out Josh Caddy, Shane Kersten, Nathan Vardy and Billie Smedts and bringing in Zach Tuohy and Aaron Black.They also lost Corey Enright and Jimmy Bartel to retirement, with Mitch Clark among the clubs delistings.Selwood denied the high turnover had hurt their premiership chances in 2017, but admitted it was difficult to see Bartel and Enright depart.Its probably emotionally a bit harder for me than some of the other boys because its all Ive ever known ... to have those great players around, he said.Theyll be missed.Selwood endured a difficult pre-season campaign last year as he struggled with plantar fasciitis, but he didnt need post-season surgery and reported for this pre-season program 100 per cent fit. http://www.officiallionsgear.com/Lions-Nick-Bellore-Draft-Jersey/ .
