AFL Teams Chopping Block: Brisbane to make changes while Geelong could make bold move


Coming up to the penultimate week of the AFL season, there are four teams remaining, with Geelong taking on Brisbane at the MCG on Friday night, while Sydney host Collingwood at the SCG on Saturday.

The Swans are set to go in unchanged to their preliminary final clash, as the week off has them ripe to take on the Pies.

Chris Scott’s men also enjoyed the week off and may continue to go with the same side that won in the first week of the finals.

However, Jake Kolodjashnij‘s fitness has come into question after he was subbed out against the Pies a fortnight ago with a knee issue.

Mark O’Connor came on as a sub and could be used again this weekend to tag Brownlow favourite Lachie Neale.

Rhys Stanley is another interesting topic for the Cats, with the presence of Oscar McInerney presenting an issue.

Stanley hasn’t necessarily performed well in big finals averaging 12 touches, 18 hit-outs and just under two clearances a game.

Jon Ceglar is in waiting if Geelong were to bring in the veteran, who’s played three matches in 2022.

The Lions are set to make two changes as the return of Joe Daniher and McInerney is a no-brainer.

Tom Fullarton and Darcy Fort were the two ins for the semi final against Melbourne and will be the unfortunate ones to make way.

Collingwood are also expected to go in unchanged as well.
