The Pies aren't short of reinforcements for their match-of-the-round against Greater Western Sydney at the MCG on Sunday. Jarrod Witts, a late withdrawal before the Queen's Birthday clash with Melbourne, appears certain to be back in contention, while defender Jonathon Marsh and left-footer Brayden Maynard are still in the frame to make their debuts. Marsh was again prominent in the VFL, where the Magpies suffered a four-point loss to Casey on Saturday. Others to do well included midfielder Sam Dwyer and forwards Patrick Karnezis and Corey Gault, the latter kicking two goals and impressing with his contested marking. Injury-plagued swingman Ben Reid also performed strongly before sitting out the last quarter, in a sure sign that he is still at least some time away from his long-awaited AFL return. - Ben Collins


After the Bombers' shocking performance against Geelong on Saturday night it would be fair to expect a number of changes for this week's road trip to Perth to face West Coast. Jobe Watson (groin) may be available after missing last week with injury and his return would boost a struggling midfield. But there are also a number of players from the VFL who are chances to come into the team. Jayden Laverde was excellent in the Bombers' VFL win over the Cats last week and is close to an AFL debut, and Shaun Edwards kicked four goals. Alex Browne and Kyle Langford will be around the mark, while ruckman Jonathan Giles must be considered to replace out-of-form big man Tom Bellchambers. Veteran speedster Jason Winderlich returned for his first game of the year last week in the VFL and could come straight in, but the Bombers might choose to save him for after their round 12 bye. - Callum Twomey


The loss of star veteran Michael Johnson for up to 10 weeks will severely test the Dockers' defensive depth. Zac Dawson (thumb) and Alex Silvagni (hamstring) are unavailable so Alex Pearce looks set to come in despite having not played since round seven due to back bruising. Tendai Mzungu could play in defence if need be. He had 20 touches and kicked two goals for Peel Thunder in the WAFL. Brady Grey is another defensive option but is too small to play a key post. The Dockers could shift a midfielder or forward back and bring in either Matt de Boer or Connor Blakely. Both were outstanding in the WAFL last week. Small forward Max Duffy also kicked four goals for Peel. - Alex Malcolm

Geelong's injury list remains long, so a few changes are expected. Rhys Stanley is expected to return from the quad injury that forced him out against Essendon. Mitch Clark is less likely but remains a rough chance to be included after suffering a calf injury that kept him out last week. Shane Kersten is likely to miss due to a hamstring injury that saw him subbed out at half-time against Essendon. Nakia Cockatoo and Sam Blease both missed last week's VFL after failing fitness tests, but if they're fit they will be considered for senior selection. George Horlin-Smith, who is battling niggling injuries, also hyperextended his knee in the VFL so is unlikely to be selected in the seniors. Jake Kolodjashnij was again in the VFL's best players keeping his name in front of selectors as he awaits an opportunity, and Jarrad Jansen has been knocking on the door recently. - Peter Ryan

Gold Coast

Charlie Dixon will be a welcome return for Saturday's match against Fremantle after serving his one-match sanction for breaking team-imposed alcohol rules. Dixon played in the NEAFL at the weekend and kicked 2.2 against the Swans reserves. His presence is timely considering the injury cloud over fullback Steven May (groin), which may force forward Tom Lynch to spend more time in the back half once again. If May is ruled out, Jack Leslie is a chance to win selection. Nick Malceski looks like spending another week in the twos, while Harley Bennell is a chance to return from a calf injury and Sam Day is closing in on a return from a broken elbow. - Michael Whiting


The Giants’ reserves side had a 192-point win over the injury-hit Brisbane Lions on Sunday, and there are plenty of players pushing for a senior berth. Midfielders Jack Steele, Jake Barrett and Paul Ahern racked up 108 touches between them at Spotless Stadium, while big man Rory Lobb cleaned up, taking 11 marks and booting seven goals. Senior regular Rhys Palmer had 28 possessions in his return from a shoulder injury. - Adam Curley


Classy midfielder Dom Tyson is almost certain to be recalled for Melbourne's clash with St Kilda on Sunday after playing a starring role for Casey in the VFL. The Demons decided to bring Tyson back through the VFL, as he had not played since round seven due to a niggling medial ligament. Last year's best and fairest runner-up collected 33 touches, six tackles and six inside 50s. Draftee Alex Neal-Bullen, who injured his knee in the pre-season, edged closer to a senior debut after racking up 35 touches, 21 of which came in the second half. Viv Michie (26 possessions) and Billy Stretch (21) are also likely to find themselves in the selection mix. - Ben Guthrie

North Melbourne

Luke McDonald's 25-possession, 12-mark effort off half-back for VFL affiliate Werribee could earn him a senior recall while Shaun Atley's 20 possessions in the midfield for North Ballarat might be enough see him back against the Swans next Saturday. Ben Jacobs (five possessions from 31 per cent game time as the substitute against West Coast) appears most likely to make way. If Robin Nahas loses his place after being subbed out with just three possessions from three quarters for the Roos, fellow small forward Kayne Turner (16 possessions and two goals) is the logical replacement. Majak Daw's first AFL appearance for 2015 must be close, with the ruck/forward booting 13 goals in his past four matches for Werribee. He hurt himself in a marking contest at the weekend but if the injury is not too serious, he could come in for veteran Jarrad Waite, who landed awkwardly on his right knee late in the third quarter against West Coast. Elsewhere, Aaron Mullett has gathered 50 possessions in his past two VFL matches while rookie-listed defender Max Warren continues to push for elevation to the senior list with a string of solid efforts at North Ballarat. - Michael Tormey

Port Adelaide

The Power are sweating on the fitness of key duo Patrick Ryder (Achilles) and Jackson Trengove (ankle). They both had fitness tests on Tuesday morning at Adelaide Oval and appeared to move well. They would be massive gains for Port ahead of its Friday night clash against Geelong. Brendon Ah Chee did all he could in the SANFL to win senior selection, collecting 30 disposals in a powerful midfield display. Kane Mitchell (29 disposals, two goals) and Andrew Moore (25 touches) were both excellent, while Sam Colquhoun (25 possessions, two goals) and Nathan Krakouer (24 possessions, seven rebound 50s) also performed strongly. - Harry Thring

St Kilda

Mav Weller is available after serving a one-match suspension while Luke Dunstan, who was rested last week, and Daniel McKenzie, who missed through concussion, should come back into contention. Paddy McCartin also missed last week with concussion and should be available. There were no obvious injuries sustained against Hawthorn but there are a few players knocking on the door of the senior team, with Sam Gilbert one of Sandringham's best on Saturday against North Ballarat and Darren Minchington again putting his hand up. Hugh Goddard was an emergency on Sunday and didn't play VFL on the weekend, and is inching closer to an AFL debut. - Jennifer Phelan

Sydney Swans

Utility Craig Bird continues to bash on the selectors' door for a recall to the senior side. The 2012 premiership player had 39 possessions, nine clearances, six tackles and 11 clearances in the Swans' reserves win over Gold Coast in the NEAFL last weekend. Brandon Jack was again good after being dropped, while Dean Towers and Zak Jones are also in good form. - Adam Curley

West Coast

The big name in the Eagles' mix this week is Jack Darling. He played his first game last week since round 23 last season and was the match-winner for East Perth, kicking five goals. Provided he pulls up well, he will likely come straight into the Eagles line-up. Xavier Ellis is back in the frame after 27 disposals across half-back for the Royals. Ellis hasn't played for the Eagles since the pre-season due to a hamstring injury. Brant Colledge worked hard for his 23 touches. Scott Lycett kicked a couple of goals and had 15 hit-outs playing as the second ruck. Mark Hutchings had a quiet day by his standards gathering 17 disposals for the Royals. Jamie Bennell remains in the mix despite missing out last week. – Alex Malcolm
