K rock Football

At Selection – Round 17

BIG man Esava Ratugolea will play his first game in more than a month when Geelong hosts St Kilda at GMHBA Stadium on Saturday night.

Ratugolea, who has been sidelined with a hamstring injury suffered against Richmond on June 7, is among two inclusions for the Cats.

Brandan Parfitt, who was managed out of last week’s loss to the Western Bulldogs, returns, with Jack Henry rested this week and Lachie Fogarty dropped after two matches back from a long-term injury.

Henry is among the four emergencies.

The Saints have also made two changes.

Experience defender Nathan Brown is back along with Jack Lonie.

Josh Battle (adductor) will miss through injury, while Matt Parker has been dropped.

K rock is live from 6pm Saturday on FM 95.5 across Geelong and the Surf Coast, and via AFL.com.au or the AFL app.
