THE CATS have confirmed that draftees Nakia Cockatoo and Cory Gregson will make their debuts in the Easter Monday blockbuster against Hawthorn on Monday.

Cockatoo and Gregson were listed on the extended bench in the 25-man squad that was named on Thursday evening.

They were then confirmed as starters in the match when they were included in the final 22-man team that was released on Saturday afternoon.

Darcy Lang also made the final team. The clash with the Hawks will be just his second AFL game.

Billie Smedts, Jordan Murdoch and George Horlin-Smith were omitted from the original squad.

They have become the three emergencies.
