Geelong captain Joel Selwood is among a number of big name inclusions for Saturday’s NAB Cup round three clash with North Melbourne at Simonds Stadium.

Selwood, who was rested from last week’s drubbing of Adelaide, comes into a 27-man squad along with Tom Hawkins.

Joel Corey, who was a late withdrawal from the team that whacked the Crows, and Paul Chapman, who suffered a knock to his quad during the match, have also been named.

Rookie duo Jackson Sheringham and Ryan Bathie have been included after playing in the VFL last week.

Among those being rested after playing in the opening two weeks of the competition are veteran trio Jimmy Bartel, Corey Enright and James Podsiadly, while new recruit Jared Rivers will also have a spell.

K-ROCK Football is on air from 3pm Saturday with Tom King, Ben Casanelia and Troy Selwood.
