K rock Football

At Selection – AAMI Series

FORMER Hawthorn star Isaac Smith will pull on the Hoops for the first time when Geelong meets Essendon in Saturday night’s AAM Community Series clash at GMHBA Stadium.

The triple-premiership player missed last week’s practice match against Collingwood with a rolled ankle.

The Cats have named a 26-man squad, including ex-Giant Jeremy Cameron and former Western Bulldogs and North Melbourne star Shaun Higgins.

Uncapped duo Francis Evans and Sam DeKoning, who has been named in the ruck, with Rhys Stanley and Darcy Fort both sidelined, will press their claims for a Round 1 berth.

Nathan Krueger, Quinton Narkle, Ben Jarvis and draftee Shannon Neale, who will play in the VFL practice match against North Melbourne on Saturday morning, are the emergencies.

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.
