Geelong has made four changes to its line-up to take on Gold Coast Suns in the Sir Doug Nicholls Round opener in Darwin.

Key forward Shannon Neale and ruck Toby Conway return to the team, while Jack Bowes is back after being managed last week and Tanner Bruhn has been given the green light to play after missing last week with a shoulder injury.

The quartet step into the side for Tom Hawkins (managed), Mitch Duncan (managed), Rhys Stanley (managed) and Jeremy Cameron (concussion protocols).

To celebrate Sir Doug Nicholls Round, the Cats will be wearing the ‘Layers of the Land’ guernsey, designed by Keerray Woorroong and Yorta Yorta woman Sherry Johnstone. Find out more about the guernsey here.

Geelong takes on Gold Coast this Thursday at TIO Stadium in Darwin, with first bounce at 7.00pm ACST. Watch via Channel 7, Foxtel and Kayo or listen via K rock Football.
