They passed with flying colours in the VFL, now Darcy Moore and Travis Varcoe appear likely to continue their recovery efforts and return from injury against West Coast.

The pair have been named alongside Callum Brown, Sam Murray and Adam Oxley as potential inclusions for a Sunday clash at the MCG.

Will Hoskin-Elliott will also be given every chance to prove his fitness ahead of the top-four match up with the Eagles.

The reliable forward has shaken off bad bone bruising sustained against Essendon last weekend, with coach Nathan Buckley on Thursday stating Hoskin-Elliott is “one of the most physically resilient and mentally tough players” he’s ever known.

The team is far from set in stone. Players will train on Saturday with all 25 in the squad to be given a final tune-up before the round 17 match.

One player named on the field and expected to take on the Eagles is Jack Crisp. The defender has never missed a match in his time at Collingwood, and on Sunday will play his 100th AFL game.

Crisp begun his career at the Brisbane Lions, before crossing to the Holden Centre in 2014 and playing 81 consecutive games since.
