GEELONG has made two changes for its Round 4 blockbuster with Brisbane at GMHBA Stadium on Friday night.

Mark O'Connor returns to the senior side after consecutive strong performances for the Bendigo Bank Cats in the VFL which included a 23-disposal and one goal game last start.

Luke Dahlhaus is the other addition to the side after playing a starring role in the final quarter comeback win against Collingwood last round after coming on as the medical substitute in the second half. 

Captain Joel Selwood will be absent for the Cats with the Club electing to rest the skipper.

"We are happy to put on the table that we will manage Joel Selwood. I think that has been earmarked over a number of weeks now," coach Chris Scott told media at Wednesday's press conference.
