Collingwood has made three changes for Monday's clash with Gold Coast at the Gabba.
Jordan De Goey and Adam Treloar make their highly anticipated return to the Magpies’ line-up.

De Goey has not played since injuring his finger in round seven where he kicked five goals against Geelong, while Treloar comes in for his seventh appearance of the season after recovering from a hamstring complaint.
Wingman Tom Phillips has been ruled out with a hamstring injury, which opens the door for veteran Travis Varcoe to take his place against the Suns.
Captain Scott Pendlebury is set to equal the clubs games record (313) with Tony Shaw and most games captained with Nathan Buckley (161).
Milestone men Jack Crisp and Josh Thomas will play their 150th and 100th games, respectively, with the senior coach applauding Thomas’ AFL journey during the team meeting on Sunday.
“From being pick 75 in the 2009 draft, to having two years out of the game, which taught you a fair bit. Now, you're showing career-best form for us,” Buckley said.
“It’s an amazing example of resilience. You stuck with it. I’m rapt for you mate."
Jaidyn Stephenson and Max Lynch have been omitted from Monday’s game.
The first bounce at the Gabba is set for 7.10pm (AEST). Tune in live on Channel 7, Fox Footy and on AFL Live Pass.
