Scott Selwood is in for the Cats

GEELONG and West Coast have made late changes for Sunday's clash at Optus Stadium, with taggers Scott Selwood and Mark Hutchings coming into the respective line-ups.

Selwood replaces ruckman Rhys Stanley, leaving the Cats seriously short on big men against Nic Naitanui and Scott Lycett.

It will be Selwood's first appearance this season after another ankle operation earlier this year.

Hutchings' strong form at East Perth has been rewarded after Liam Duggan pulled up with hamstring tightness.

The Eagles' hard nut appears set for a job on Geelong skipper Joel Selwood after keeping him to 19 touches in the corresponding fixture last year.
