Sydney coach John Longmire has backed his inexperienced AFL ruckmen and revealed he may use a couple more youngsters to pinch hit while Callum Sinclair and Kurt Tippett are sidelined.

Sinclair and Tippett will miss multiple matches, leaving rookies Sam Naismith and Toby Nankervis to shoulder the majority of the ruck work.

"We're really confident in what they've been able to do," said Longmire.
