INS – Melksham, Tomlinson, Chandler, Brown
OUTS – Bedford (omitted)

THANKS to a smooth week on the track, Melbourne will head into its Round 9 clash against West Coast with a strong extended line-up.

The Demons named their 26-man squad four days out from the Sunday match in Perth, with Jake Melksham, Adam Tomlinson, Kade Chandler and Mitch Brown all joining the side.

The final team of 22 will be announced tomorrow at 5:00pm (AEST).

This will be Melbourne’s first time returning to Perth since its premiership glory back in September of 2021, with the club encouraging all its WA-based fans to reunite at Optus Stadium.
