The VFL Cats have made six changes to their team, ahead of a Saturday afternoon clash with the Brisbane Lions at Brighton Homes Arena.

Geelong will welcome back Connor O'Sullivan this weekend, after the highly touted youngster made his AFL debut against North Melbourne last Sunday. 

Shannon Neale also returns after an impressive outing against the Kangaroos, adding some valuable height and experience to the VFL Cats forward half.

Osca Riccardi and Bailey Van De Heuvel have both been added to the side for this weekend, along with talented young ruckman Ajang Kuol Mun, after the trio missed the clash with the Bullants last week. 

Patrick Hughes is the final inclusion for the Cats, joining the side as the 23rd player ahead of the clash with the Lions. 

Toby Conway has been added to the Cats AFL team for Saturday night's clash with Brisbane, while Oisin Mullin will miss through personal reasons. 

Marcus Herbert (injured), James Willis (illness), Tobyn Murray (Young guns) and Jamieson Ballantyne will all miss the clash with the Lions on Saturday. 

The VFL Cats will take on the Lions from 1.05pm this Saturday, at Brighton Homes Arena in Brisbane. 

All matches in the 2024 Smithy’s VFL and VFLW seasons will be live streamed free via the AFL website, AFL Live Official App and VFL App.
