Selection: Pies make one change for the Crows

The Swoop: Round 22 Get all the news ahead of Saturday's game against the Crows in Adelaide.

Collingwood has regained John Noble for the clash against Adelaide on Saturday afternoon.

The dashing half back returns to the line-up for his second AFL game after sustaining a calf injury in his debut against West Coast.

Noble has been an outstanding contributor to Collingwood’s VFL side in recent weeks and replaces Josh Daicos who has been omitted from the trip to Adelaide Oval.

“He’s a chance and has played some really good footy recently,” Buckley told reporters on Thursday.

Levi Greenwood is set to play his 150th AFL game after starting his career at North Melbourne in 2009. The 30-year-old was drafted to Collingwood in 2014 and has played 75 games in the black and white.

Collingwood have named Tyler Brown, Josh Daicos, Ben Crocker and Mark Keane as the emergencies. Brown and Daicos will travel with the team to Adelaide.

The first bounce is set for 4.05pm, with the Adelaide Oval expected to attract 43,000 fans.

Jordan De Goey (hamstring), Darcy Moore (hamstring) and Jaidyn Stephenson (suspension) were unavailable for selection.
