The Swoop: Round 9 Get all the latest news, and the team, ahead of the big clash with the Saints.

Collingwood welcomes back experienced duo Dayne Beams and Travis Varcoe for round nine against St Kilda at the MCG on Saturday afternoon.

After sustaining a hip issue that left him out of round eight, Beams trained strongly at the Holden Centre on Thursday morning.

Varcoe will replace Jamie Elliott, who is managing a hamstring injury from the win over Carlton.

The first bounce is set for 1.45pm, with the MCG expected to attract 50,000 fans.

Daniel Wells, Isaac Quaynor, James Aish and Rupert Wills have been named as emergencies.

Mason Cox and Taylor Adams were unavailable for selection.
