Geelong has named their round one team to play GWS at GIANTS Stadium on Saturday night at 7.40pm.

The match promises be a close-fought battle after both sides played finals last season.


The Cats have been boosted by the return of captain Joel Selwood and midfielder Mitch Duncan after they missed the recent Marsh Community Series.

Darcy Fort's impressive first-half performance against the Bombers in Colac appears to have helped him secure first go in the ruck, while Zach Guthrie gets an opportunity and will come in to play his first AFL game since Round Seven last year.
