Josh Richards has recovered from concussion to be listed on the five-man extended interchange bench.
Former Panther Cody Szust was squeezed back to the Reserves after playing both senior matches last week in the wake of Ed Smart hurting his quad in the warm-up of the League game.

Port Adelaide v Glenelg | Alberton Oval | 2:10pm
Port Adelaide has been bolstered by the return of a star midfielder for its clash against Glenelg on Sunday.
Former Melbourne captain Jack Trengove, who last played against the Bays in Round 8, has recovered from a leg infection to be named on the wing.
The polished on-baller has been joined in the Mapgies 25-man squad by veteran ruckman Paddy Ryder and Power rookie Kai Pudney.
Former Woodville-West Torrens junior Lachlan Smith and Henley Sharks’ Charlie Morrison are among several SANFL-contracted Magpies added to the extended interchange.
Rebounding defender Matthew Broadbent was fittingly awarded a call up to AFL ranks after 38 disposals last round while key forward Billy Frampton accepted a two-match ban for engaging in rough conduct with Adelaide’s Pat Wilson in Round 13.

Sturt v West Adelaide | Peter Motley Oval | 2:10pm
Sturt has called upon a premiership bigman for its contest against West on Sunday.
Former Geelong rookie Tom Read has been rewarded for his strong form in the Reserves last week after playing his return game from a serious calf injury.
