Selwood was joined in the Cats squad to face the Kangas by star forward Tom Hawkins and premiership veterans Paul Chapman and Joel Corey.
The Cats elected to rest popular on-baller Jimmy Bartel, as well as big goal-kicker James Podsiadly and new recruit Jared Rivers.
Hawthorn named midfield star Shaun Burgoyne for his first hit-out of the 2013 pre-season, for the Hawks' clash with Richmond.
The Tigers named veteran recruit Troy Chaplin for his first appearance in Richmond colours, after the former Port Adelaide defender recovered from a pre-season injury problem.
Brisbane has included powerhouse forward Jonathan Brown for their crunch clash with Collingwood in Melbourne, with the winner almost certain to advance to the final of the pre-season tournament.
As expected, Sydney champion Adam Goodes was included in the Swans' squad to take on Gold Coast.
The Swans also included star midfielder Kieren Jack and Rhyce Shaw for Saturday's clash at Blacktown Olympic Park.
Fremantle captain Matthew Pavlich will face the Western Bulldogs in Mandurah, after missing last weekend's pre-season action to be with his wife in anticipation for the birth of their first child.
West Coast named injury-plagued hard man Beau Waters in their squad to face Port Adelaide in Alice Springs on Saturday.
It will be Waters' first appearance of the pre-season competition after the defender underwent foot surgery over the summer.
