Collingwood has made three changes ahead of the round five clash against Essendon at the MCG on Friday night.
Adam Treloar will make his first appearance of 2020, with senior coach Nathan Buckley declaring the star midfielder “ready to go” in his press conference on Tuesday.
“He’s been in good form and we asked him to play that extra game last week to bulletproof him going forward,” Buckley said on Tuesday.
“He hasn’t missed a step so he’s ready to go.”
Matt Scharenberg and Travis Varcoe are set to play their first game of the season, with the pair replacing the injured Jeremy Howe and John Noble (omitted).
Steele Sidebottom comes out of the side after being suspended for breaching the AFL's Return to Play protocols.
Our emergencies are Josh Thomas, Brayden Sier, Darcy Cameron, Jack Madgen.
The remaining AFL listed players will contest a scratch match against the Essendon on Friday afternoon.
The first bounce at the MCG is set for 7.50pm. Tune in live on Channel 7, Fox Footy and on AFL Live Pass.
