The squads for the final night of this weekend’s AFLX action on Saturday have been announced.
Two of the most recent AFL premiership sides, Richmond and the Western Bulldogs, will do battle with the Sydney Swans, GWS Giants, Brisbane Lions and Gold Coast Suns at Sydney’s Allianz Stadium.
The reigning premiers have named a young side featuring three players that took the field in last year’s Grand Final: Jason Castagna, Daniel Butler and Nathan Broad.
The Tigers will also roll out five draftees headlined by Jack Higgins, the club’s first pick in last year’s NAB AFL National Draft.
The Bulldogs have also opted for youth, with key forward Jack Redpath to captain a side with a total of 65 games’ AFL experience.
The two home sides boast the strongest squads, with the Giants headed by midfielders Lachie Whitfield and Tom Scully.
Sydney have also named a host of first-team players in the 20-man squad, with defender Dane Rampe and forward Sam Reid to lead way for the Swans at both ends of the ground.
Gold Coast’s Sam Day will make his first appearance in over 12 months following a hip injury that kept him out of the entirety of 2017, while Brisbane have opted for a mix of experience and youth in their 14-man squad.
