At Selection – Round 21

GEELONG has welcomed back Tom Stewart and Rhys Stanley from injury among five changes for Saturday’s clash with Hawthorn at the MCG.

Quinton Narkle also returns after missing the loss to Richmond to attend a funeral, while James Parsons and Mark O’Connor, who was elevated from the rookie list this afternoon in place of Cory Gregson, have been recalled.

Parsons hasn’t played since the loss to the Western Bulldogs in Round 15. O’Connor will make his second appearance of the season – and just the fourth of his career – with his most recent AFL game coming against the Hawks on Easter Monday.

CATS: FINDING A BALANCE

Jed Bews will miss with the shoulder injury suffered late in the clash with the Tigers, while Ryan Abbott, Jackson Thurlow, Jamaine Jones and Jordan Cunico have been dropped.

Hawthorn has made one change, with debutant Conor Nash replacing Brendan Whitecross (illness).

K rock is live from 12 on FM 95.5 across Geelong and the Surf Coast, FM 88.0 at the MCG and via AFL.com.au or the AFL app.
