Jeremy Howe and Adam Treloar are two big inclusions for the Magpies

WEST Coast and Collingwood will take unchanged line-ups into Saturday night's blockbuster qualifying final at Optus Stadium.

The Pies have confirmed three big inclusions, with star midfielder Adam Treloar, high-flying defender Jeremy Howe and versatile tall backman Tyson Goldsack taking their places. 

Meanwhile, the Eagles have been bolstered by the return of dual Coleman medallist Josh Kennedy after five games out with a hairline fracture in his shin.

Elite kicking half-back Lewis Jetta is also into West Coast's 22 after sitting out the round 23 trip to Brisbane with a calf niggle.

Treloar is back after suffering a rare double hamstring injury against Carlton in round 14 which threatened to end his season.

Howe has missed four matches after having a corked thigh drained, but Goldsack is the shock inclusion only six months after rupturing his ACL.

The 31-year-old returns after two games in the VFL to help the undermanned Pies backline cope with West Coast's twin talls Josh Kennedy and Jack Darling.

Jack Madgen, Adam Oxley and Nathan Murphy have been omitted from the side which laboured past Fremantle at Optus Stadium in round 23.

Young Eagles tall Oscar Allen has made way for Kennedy, while backman Will Schofield has made way for Jetta.

Light run started to fall at Optus Stadium 90 minutes before the bounce, despite the forecast predicting a clear evening in Perth.
