At Selection – Round 12

GEELONG has made two changes for Friday night’s blockbuster clash with Port Adelaide on the Gold Coast – but the return of Esava Ratugolea isn’t one of them.

Instead the Cats. have recalled Sam Simpson and Lachie Fogarty after both were rested from Monday night’s win over St Kilda.

It means Ratugolea will miss at least three games, having last played against West Coast in Round 9.

Rookie Brad Close and former Saint Jack Steven have both been listed as managed.

Josh Jenkins has been included as an emergency, which indicates the former Adelaide forward is closing in on a first outing at AFL level for Geelong.

Ex-Cat Steve Motlop will return from injury among two changes for the Power.

Former Lion Sam Mayes has also been named.

Cam Sutcliffe and Jarrod Lienert have both been dropped.

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