Three changes have been made by the Western Bulldogs for Monday night’s match against Port Adelaide at Adelaide Oval.
Star midfielder Josh Dunkley will return from injury against the ladder-leaders, after missing the past six matches.
Joining Dunkley in the side are draftee Cody Weightman, a late withdrawal last week against Richmond, and Roarke Smith, who will play his first AFL game for 2020.
Matt Suckling has been sidelined with a hamstring injury, while Jackson Trengove and Billy Gowers have been omitted.
Gowers has been named as an emergency, alongside Ben Cavarra, Fergus Greene and Jordon Sweet.
The match will mark speedster Ed Richards’ 50th at AFL level.
Richards joined the Bulldogs with pick 16 in the 2017 NAB AFL Draft. The 21-year-old has missed just five games in his three seasons in red, white and blue, having made his debut in round two, 2018.
The match will be broadcast live on Fox Footy.
