Geelong has made three changes to the side for Thursday night’s clash at Adelaide Oval with Dan Menzel headlining the inclusions.
Menzel, who has 15 goals in five games this season, has not played since Round 5 while young forwards Sam Simpson and Wylie Buzza get a rare opportunity to shine.
Buzza has played just two games in 2018 after making six appearances in 2017. Simpson has not been in Geelong’s side since Round 22 of last year and has five games to his name.
The trio replaces the experienced Harry Taylor, Jordan Murdoch and Lachie Fogarty.
