BRISBANE recruit Nakia Cockatoo will play his first game for the club after being selected to face Hawthorn on Sunday.
After being the unused medical substitute last week, Cockatoo has won a place inside the starting 22 for the Lions' trip to Tasmania, with Deven Robertson making way for the Lions.
The former Cat, who has had an injury-riddled career, has played two games since the end of 2017 and crossed to the club at the end of last season and has battled more hamstring woes this year.
Greater Western Sydney will regain superstar Toby Greene and give a debut to James Peatling for its clash with Port Adelaide, while Port Adelaide has recalled Orazio Fantasia from injury.
Dion Prestia is back from a hamstring injury to take on Fremantle at Optus Stadium as Richmond's finals hopes hang in the balance, while Marlion Pickett has made way.
The Dockers have been dealt a serious blow with injuries, with gun trio Nat Fyfe, Michael Walters and Alex Pearce all ruled out.

Josh Treacy, Joel Western and Tobe Watson have been included in the side.
Meanwhile, Geelong has made a late change for its clash with North Melbourne on Saturday with defender Mark O'Connor out with knee soreness.
Nathan Kreuger has been included to make his AFL debut, with the athletic 196cm defender to face the Kangaroos.
