TEAMS: Gun Demons return, Crows rest in-form ruck

MELBOURNE'S line-up has been boosted ahead of its blockbuster clash with Collingwood, regaining Kate Hore and Sinead Goldrick from illness and concussion respectively.

The Demons have omitted last week's debutant Lauren Magee and Brenna Tarrant.

Collingwood has swapped one speedy forward for another, recalling Aliesha Newman as cover for Sarah Rowe (shoulder), who is expected to miss 2-3 weeks.

It'll be quite the return to Adelaide's line-up for Jess Sedunary, set to play her first game back in Crows colours against the side she spent a year at in St Kilda.

The Crows will carry an inexperienced ruck line-up of Caitlin Gould and Sarah Allan against the in-form Rhiannon Watt, with Rhiannon Metcalfe managed. Veteran forward Renee Forth will miss with injury.

The Saints have made three changes, losing some serious pace with Kate McCarthy (delayed concussion) and Nat Exon (injured) sidelined.

Nadia von Bertouch (foot) and Ali Brown (quad) return from injury, while Renee Saulitis has been recalled and defensive debutant Rebecca Ott omitted.

West Coast has regained some power at either end of the ground, with Niamh Kelly (finger) and Demi Liddle (back) returning from two weeks on the sidelines.

Opponents Gold Coast have swung the axe, handing games to Sally Riley, Jordann Hickey and Wallis Randell for the first time this season, with the latter to make her debut.

Britt Perry, Georgia Bevan and Molly Ritson have been omitted.
