Geelong has made two changes to their team that will line up against Hawthorn at the MCG on Sunday at 1.10pm.

Jake Kolodjashnij has been named to start in the back pocket after he missed last week’s win against the Saints with concussion.

James Parsons has been rewarded for his excellent recent form in the VFL and will come into the side for the first time since round 11.


Geelong has lost Brandan Parfitt to a back injury, while defender Jack Henry has been managed.

Henry, Zac Smith, Scott Selwood and Sam Simpson are the emergencies.

Mark Blicavs will play his 150th game against the Hawks.
