COLLINGWOOD has pulled a selection shock, with tall forward Darcy Cameron recalled for Saturday night's crunch elimination final clash with West Coast.

Cameron hasn't played at AFL level since round 14, but the former Swan has been included as one of two changes the Pies have made for the clash at Optus Stadium.

He comes into the line-up alongside Chris Mayne, who is back from his fractured cheekbone, replacing omitted duo Tyler Brown and veteran Travis Varcoe. 

Cameron has played eight games for the Pies this season but will join forces with fellow target and pinch-hit ruckman Mason Cox in Collingwood's front half.
