Western Bulldogs name their side to face Collingwood on Friday night.

Bulldogs’ skipper Marcus Bontempelli and key defender Alex Keath headline five inclusions ahead of Friday night’s clash against Collingwood at Marvel Stadium.

The important duo will be joined by youngsters Rhylee West and Jordon Sweet, with Luke Cleary making his debut in the red, white and blue.

After a night of carnage in Adelaide, Tim O’Brien (calf), Laith Vandermeer (hamstring) and Cody Weightman (collarbone) will all exit the side due to injury.

Ruckman Sweet comes into the side at the expense of Stefan Martin, who will miss after being managed for the fixture against the Pies, while Roarke Smith has been omitted.

West returns to the line-up after being named medi-sub in his only appearance this year against the Crows in Ballarat.

Sweet played five games across the 2021 season and has been given the opportunity off the back of strong form in the VFL side.

Cleary will play his first game in Bulldogs colours after being drafted at pick 61 in the 2021 National Draft.

Hayden Crozier, Arthur Jones, Roarke Smith and Josh Schache are the emergencies for tomorrow’s clash.

A player will be confirmed as the medical sub an hour before the first bounce. 

Channel 7 and Fox Footy will broadcast the game live.

Friday night will mark the 24th instalment of the Robert Rose Cup, named after former Pie and Bulldog Robert Rose who was paralysed in a car accident in 1974. He passed away in 1999, with the Cup established in 2000 to honour his contribution to the sport and raise awareness for people living with disability
