Team selection: Defence bolstered

Team Selection | Round 19 Grace Phillips brings you all the team selection news ahead of our Round 19 clash against Geelong.

Defensive duo Caleb Marchbank and Simon White will return to the Blues’ line-up against Geelong for Saturday night's clash at Etihad Stadium. 

Marchbank has been sidelined since Round 15, after the 20-year-old fractured his shoulder. Meanwhile, White will return to the fold after overcoming a knee injury sustained in the Blues’ recent clash against Melbourne. 

Nick Graham (omitted) and Harrison Macreadie (managed) make way for the pair, with young key forward Harry McKay maintaining his spot following his debut last weekend against Brisbane.  


The Blues will do battle at Etihad Stadium on Saturday night, with the ball set to bounce at 7:25pm.
