Four players in JLT squad

MELBOURNE has added four inclusions after playing two men short last week, with key players Neville Jetta, Jeff Garlett, Dom Tyson and Sam Frost all named in the 26-man squad.

Tyson returns from a calf strain, while Garlett has recovered from the rib injury that hampered his training post-Christmas.

Medium forward Bailey Fritsch has been named in a forward pocket and looks a likely starter in round one.  

The Demons have rested Alex Neal-Bullen and will be without injured veteran Jordan Lewis, who will miss with a minor calf strain.

Lewis suffered a minor calf strain in the Demons' opening pre-season game against North Melbourne, but the club remains confident the 31-year-old will be available for the round one clash against Geelong on March 25.
