There are four changes to the team to take on Melbourne this Saturday at Metricon Stadium. 

After a 28-disposal and four-goal outing in his first NEAFL match for the year, Sean Lemmens has been injected straight into the side and will start on the half-forward flank.

Lachie Weller also returns to the side after four weeks out with a hamstring injury and will start at half-back.

Pearce Hanley is back in the team after missing last week’s match with a shin injury, joining Weller on the opposite defensive flank.

Jack Lukosius also returns after a one-game absence and will start on the interchange.

There are two forced changes through injury, with Aaron Young (knee) and Brayden Fiorini (knee) withdrawn from the side. 

George Horlin-Smith and Jesse Joyce have been omitted.

The match kicks off at 4:35pm at Metricon Stadium this Saturday, with mums being offered complimentary massages in celebration of Mother’s Day this weekend.

The players will also be handing out bouquets of flowers after the game to mothers in the crowd.
