Caminiti was not listed as an emergency, but the AFL has granted permission for him to come into the side.

“St Kilda Football Club has this morning confirmed with the AFL and the GWS Giants the late omission of Tim Membrey for today’s elimination final,” the statement said.

“Membrey is currently receiving appropriate care and treatment due to a personal health matter.

“He will be replaced in the side by Anthony Caminiti.

“Tim’s health and wellbeing is our primary concern and the club asks that Tim and the Membrey family’s privacy is respected at this time.

“The club will not be making any further comment as it focuses on the match later today.”
