Get them in: With four days between its 40-point loss to St Kilda and the Anzac Eve clash against Richmond, you can expect a few changes. Jeff Garlett, Declan Keilty, Oscar McDonald and Tim Smith were all on reduced minutes in VFL affiliate Casey's exhibition game against Australia's Under-18 side and will come into the selection frame. Jay Lockhart and Billy Stretch are the others to be considered.

Under the pump: Charlie Spargo and Corey Wagner are likely outs, while Jordan Lewis, Josh Wagner and Sam Weideman are also likely to be on the hot seat after indifferent form.  

Medical room: Neville Jetta was a late withdrawal from the game against the Swans and did not look anywhere near fit in the game against the Saints. He has since been ruled out for up to 10 weeks. Tom McDonald is another who looks laboured and could do with a spell. Jack Viney (hand) had scans on the weekend and will be a sore boy if he plays.

Verdict: Garlett for Spargo, Lockhart for C.Wagner, Stretch for Lewis, O.McDonald for Jetta and Tim Smith for Weideman.
