At Selection – Round 6

SAM Simpson will play his first AFL match in nearly two years after being named in the Geelong team as the replacement for Jack Steven for the Round 6 opener against Brisbane at the SCG on Thursday night.

Simpson played the last of his six senior games against Adelaide on July 12, 2018.

His previous five matches all came in late 2017.

Former Saint Steven has been listed as managed. After six possessions in his first match in the Hoops in Round 3, Steven had 17 disposals in the wins over Melbourne and Gold Coast.

36-year-old great Gary Ablett has been named despite the five-day break between matches.

The Lions have made one change, with captain Dayne Zorko replacing the injured Cam Ellis-Yolmen.

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