Selection: Three changes for Lions clash

Collingwood has made three changes for Saturday night's big game against the Brisbane Lions at Etihad Stadium.

Jordan De Goey, James Aish and Adam Oxley have come into the side.

A hamstring injury has forced Darcy Moore out of the team. Callum Brown and Josh Daicos have been omitted.

De Goey returns after missing two matches due to a leg injury, while Aish is back for his first AFL game since suffering a knee injury against Richmond in round six.

Aish has spent the past three weekends running around in the VFL.

Oxley, meanwhile, has earned a call-up for his first AFL match since round 22, 2016.

The rookie-listed defender has regularly been among the VFL Pies' best players in recent weeks.

He was the travelling emergency for the AFL clash with the Swans in Sydney last weekend, then returned home and racked up 23 disposals and seven rebound-50s in the VFL game against the Box Hill Hawks.
