Boyd axed, Goldsack back in AFL

  • Boyd axed, Goldsack back in AFL

The key forwards are the selection news for Sunday's AFL match at Etihad Stadium, with the Western Bulldogs dropping Tom Boyd and Collingwood recalling Tyson Goldsack.

The Magpies brought in Goldsack to replace their main forward Travis Cloke, who has a calf muscle injury.

Goldsack is back after three games out because of a knee injury.

Boyd has only kicked one goal in the last three games and the star signing made way for Shane Biggs.

As expected, Tom Barrass will make his AFL debut when West Coast host Sydney.

Barrass comes in for key defender Jeremy McGovern, who is out for several weeks because of a hamstring injury.

While Barrass will go up against Lance Franklin, he will not have to cope with Kurt Tippett.

The Swans key forward has a hand injury and is among four changes after last week's big loss to Hawthorn

Suspended Sydney defender Ted Richards will make way for younger brother Xavie, who will play his second senior game.

Mike Pyke, Isaac Heeney and Jeremy Laidler are the other inclusions, while Craig Bird has a calf injury and Brandon Jack has been dropped.

St Kilda's Adam Schneider will return at the expense of Farren Ray for the match against Melbourne at the MCG.

The Demons recalled Jack Grimes and Vic Michie for Jay Kennedy-Harris and Alex Neal-Bullen.
