The Western Bulldogs have made two changes ahead of their Friday night lights clash against Hawthorn at Marvel Stadium.

Jordon Sweet returns to the side after impressing in earlier rounds, finding his way into the ruck role at the expense of Tim English, who will miss due to concussion.


Taylor Duryea will miss after sustaining an MCL injury in last weekend’s victory over GWS and will be replaced by Hayden Crozier.

Crozier enters the side off the back of some strong performances in the VFL, racking up plenty of the footy in the defensive half for Footscray in recent weeks.

Exciting forward Cody Weightman has been named in the side despite dislocating his elbow in the third quarter last week.

The emergencies are Dom Bedendo, Buku Khamis, Lachlan McNeil and Riley Garcia.

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.
