As an elimination final against the flying Bulldogs awaits, Casey have made significant changes to the side that played last week against North Melbourne.

As Melbourne have the pre-finals bye, some AFL listed players become ineligible to play this week in the VFL.

Melbourne have also decided to rest some of the AFL listed players due to the sahort break between the VFL match and the AFL final on Thursday night.

For these reasons, the magnets have been shuffled with plenty of familiar VFL listed players will return to the team.

Jack Bell will come back into the side after playing the first half of the season for Casey.

Utility at either end of the ground, Ryan Valentine, will also come into the forward line.

Kyah Farris-White will also come into the side with Finn Emilie-Brennan coming into the play his second VFL game after debuting in round nine.

Tommy McRae makes a return alongside Ziggy Toledo who kicked two goals on debut just two weeks ago.

Heath Briggs is the last of the inclusions to the side and will be making his debut this week.

All the players coming out of the side are AFL listed and will not play for the reasons mentioned above.

Brodie Grundy, Charlie Spagro, Josh Schahce, James Jordon, Tom McDonald and Taj Woewodin will all be out of the side and unable to play.

Luke Dunstan is the last of the players coming out of the team.

Luke has unfortunately sustained a ACL injury in the last game and we will Luke the very best in his recovery.

The 2023 season will end for one of the two sides playing tomorrow. 

A Casey side with plenty of changes will look to continue on our hunt for back to back flags.

While the Bulldogs are looking to extend their current run of ten games unbeaten.

It is looking to be an incredible clash at Box Hill City Oval with the winner playing the losing side in the game between Werribee and Box Hill.

Melbourne have a bye before finals so it would be great to see as many Demons fans at Box Hill City oval as possible to cheer on Casey towards another finals win.
