GWS skipper Greene back to take on Saints, King

·1-min read

GWS captain Toby Greene has been named to return from an ankle injury in his side's AFL clash with a St Kilda outfit bolstered by the return of three key players.

Greene was selected alongside fellow inclusions Kieren Briggs and Jake Riccardi for Sunday's Giants Stadium encounter.

Matt Flynn, Callum Brown and Daniel Lloyd were all dropped.

Saints spearhead Max King will play his first game of the season after shoulder surgery, replacing Tim Membrey (concussion) in attack.

Jade Gresham (knee) and Jimmy Webster (cheekbone) are also back for St Kilda after time out with injuries.

Greene has missed the Giants' last two matches - defeats to flag fancies Collingwood and the Western Bulldogs - with an ankle injury.

The GWS skipper was initially named to face the Magpies but was ruled out two days before the eventual 65-point loss at the MCG.

Greene hurt himself during his match-winning performance in the Giants' memorable one-point victory over cross-town rivals Sydney in round seven.

Carlton ruckman Tom De Koning and Collingwood counterpart Darcy Cameron were both named as emergencies for Sunday's MCG clash, adding intrigue to the final selection mix.

De Koning, a hot prospect who is out of contract, has not played for the Blues since round five.

Cameron has recovered from a knee injury and Magpies coach Craig McRae hinted the ruckman could play his first match since round three as the substitute.

Hawthorn have lost Chad Wingard and Changkuoth Jiath (both calf) for Sunday's meeting with West Coast in Launceston, while Harry Morrison has been rested.

Tyler Brockman and Ned Reeves return.

The injury-hit Eagles have lost Jack Darling (fractured arm) and Luke Edwards (illness) this week, replacing the pair with Campbell Chesser and Noah Long.
