Collingwood will again be forced into a number of changes ahead of its clash with Richmond on Friday afternoon. 

The Magpies will lose two of their strongest performers in last week’s win over Frankston in Josh Daicos and Matthew Scharenberg, who have been called up to the senior side.

But the Pies will be bolstered by like-for-like replacements in Flynn Appleby and Ben Crocker as they look to topple the ladder-leading Tigers.

Co-captains Alex Woodward and Jack Hellier have each been named on the extended bench after injury-forced absences.

Tim Broomhead has been named on the ball for the Pies in what will be his 50th VFL match for the club.
