QUINTON Narkle has been dropped as Geelong settled on three changes for Sunday’s clash with Melbourne at the MCG.

Narkle, who had a season-high 18 possessions against Carlton, joins Harry Taylor (managed) and Rhys Stanley (knee) in going out of the team that suffered a two-point loss to the Blues.

Brandan Parfitt is back after being a late withdrawal last week due to hamstring tightness, Darcy Fort will play his first game since Round 1, and Jake Kolodjashnij will make his maiden appearance of 2020.

The Demons, who haven’t played since Round 2 after last week’s clash with Essendon was postponed, have made five changes.

Aaron vandenBerg, Jay Lockhart, Kysaiah Pickett, Michael Hibberd and Mitch Hannanr replacing Alex Neal-Bullen, Harley Bennell, Luke Jackson, Neville Jetta and former captain Nathan Jones.
