Bulldogs overhauled, son of a gun to debut
Western Bulldogs coach Luke Beveridge has swung the axe following his side’s 57-point loss to Geelong before the bye, dumping Tom Campbell, Fletcher Roberts, Josh Dunkley and Mitch Honeychurch.
Veteran ruckman Will Minson, and slick duo Clay Smith and Jason Johannisen have earned recalls to the Dogs’ line-up.
Carlton youngster Jack Silvagni will debut at the tender age of 18 against Collingwood, following in the footsteps of his father, AFL Team of the Century fullback Stephen, and his grandfather, fellow Carlton legend Serge.
Meanwhile, the Magpies get veteran Tyson Goldsack back from a thumb injury layoff, and Callum Ah Chee (Suns), Jack Grimes (Demons) and Jeremy Laidler (Swans) are also among the notable players returning.
