Callum Sinclair is one of two late outs for the Swans

SYDNEY has two late withdrawals from its team to play Gold Coast in Sunday's JLT Community Series match at Lismore with prolific half-back Jake Lloyd and ruckman Callum Sinclair both out.

Lloyd has been struck down by illness while the reason for Sinclair's absence is yet to be confirmed.

They've been replaced by James Rowbottom and Samuel Wicks. 

Rowbottom is the No.25 pick from last year's NAB AFL Draft and was an Oakleigh midfielder, while Wicks is a small forward from the Swans Academy. 

The withdrawals add to the absences of Lance Franklin, Kieren Jack and Nick Smith for the Swans, who will unleash veterans Jarrad McVeigh and Heath Grundy for their first hitout of the season, along with dashing Zak Jones.

Gold Coast is unchanged and goes in with a strong team.

It lost resolute defender Rory Thompson on match eve after he suffered a season-ending ACL injury at training on Friday, with veteran Sam Day coming into the squad to replace him.

Aside from Thompson, the Suns are missing Sean Lemmens and George Horlin-Smith, who both suffered ankle injuries in last Sunday's win over the Western Bulldogs.

They will play top-six draft picks Jack Lukosius, Izak Rankine and Ben King.

Sydney v Gold Coast at Oakes Oval, 1.10pm AEDT
