The Swans say Chad Warner will face the GWS Giants in the Sydney derby on Saturday despite lewd pictures of the rising midfield gun being leaked online without his consent.
A series of images and videos of Warner were shared on social media on Friday, which show him naked and performing sexual acts.
The Swans said in a statement the club was aware of the content and it was being circulated without his consent.

“The club is working with the eSafety Commissioner to prevent the images from being distributed further,” the statement said.
“Chad’s welfare is our priority and we are supporting him at this time.”
The images are believed to be from two years ago.
Warner has played 32 senior games since arriving at the Swans via pick 39 in the 2019 AFL draft.
The Western Australian is enjoying a breakout season this year, having tallied 20 or more disposals on 13 occasions.
