Four players have been included in the 23-man squad with first-year coach Sam Lonergan yet to make any unforced changes despite losing three matches in succession.

Ruck pair Jarrad Redden and Jordan West have been named on the extended interchange bench while fellow inclusions Joe Heinjus (full back) and Nick Hayes (half-forward) are in the starting 18.
