GEELONG coach Chris Scott has called on fans to seize the "historic moment" as the 'Dangerwoodlett' trio is unveiled for the first time against Hawthorn on Easter Monday.
Scott said he had seen enough of Patrick Dangerfield on the training track to tick off on his injured hamstring and unite with superstars Gary Ablett and Joel Selwood.
He stopped short of guaranteeing they would start in the centre square together but said fans could ill-afford to miss the spectacle.
"It's an occasion that I imagine they wouldn't want to miss being there live to see Ablett, Selwood and Dangerfield play for the first time," Scott said on Saturday.
"There is some excitement that is generated by these historic moments.
"We should seize the moment because there's no guarantee that it's going to last for a long time, those guys are in the backend of their careers."
Selwood and Ablett started in the centre square last week in the win against Melbourne as Scott forecasted Dangerfield would be thrown into the mix.
"It's an option. I can't come up with a really compelling reason not to do it at times during the game," he said.
"We still think those three guys are midfielders first. It's a pretty good reason to have them there.
"There'd be a fair chance they'll be in the forward half for stages as well."
After the Cats held on to win last week courtesy of a Max Gawn miss in the dying stages, Scott said they have worked on close finishes in preparation for the Hawks.
"We did. You should anticipate that the games against the Hawks, if we play well, are going to be tight, there's a strong history there.
"They're a challenging team to play when the game's tight. We've certainly prepared on that basis."
The Cats are still working through the options for Harry Taylor's plantar fascia injury, Scott revealing the Cats are looking to avoid surgery that would extend his time in rehab.
And with Lachie Henderson still sidelined despite having "turned the corner" in his return from a knee injury, Scott was wary of an inexperienced defence, including debutant Jack Henry, taking on Hawthorn's forward power.
"You go through the names and compare with Hawthorn at their best which was formidable, (Paul) Puopolo, (Cyril) Rioli, (Jack) Gunston, (Jarryd) Roughead, (Luke) Breust, that's a pretty good forward half.
"Some might argue that's up with the best forward halves we've seen.
"It's a great challenge and opportunity for our guys."
Hawk Tom Mitchell racked up a record 54 possessions last week against Collingwood, but Scott said he wouldn't send a specific tagger with him.
"It's such a hard one to answer because the honest answer is that it depends," he said.
"We'll go in with a plan, clearly, but I'm sure Alastair would have the same question put to him (on Ablett, Dangerfield, Selwood).
"If he has 50 touches against us, it won't be because we just let him go.
"I would contend Collingwood didn't let him go either, they just didn't do what they planned well enough."
Ablett averages 36 disposals in his past 12 encounters against Hawthorn since Geelong's 2008 Grand Final loss.
