A host of AFL-listed players return to NEAFL action this weekend as teams fight for a place in the top six heading in to the business end of the year.

Michael Barlow, Pearce Hanley and Brayden Fiorini headline the inclusions for Gold Coast when they travel to Sydney to take on the GIANTS at Spotless Stadium.

The GIANTS are also bolstered by the return of Brett Deledio, Daniel Lloyd, Jack Buckley, Dylan Buckley and Nick Shipley, while Allies MVP winner Kieren Briggs is also among the additions.

Meanwhile, Brisbane will debut Category B Rookie signing Tom Fullarton in their clash with Sydney University at Blacktown, with Ben Keays also coming back in to the Lions’ side.

Sydney University lose Sam Fong (injured) and Matt Thompson (illness), but have regained three huge stars in  Zac O’Brien, William Sierakowski and Craig Bird.

Canberra has made one change for its battle with Redland, with Lucas Meline injured and replaced with Matt Vardanega.

Redland has dropped Stephen Mills and Ryan Dadds, and brought in Jai Kennealy and Jarrod Huddy.

Aspley has also shuffled its side for its blockbuster against Southport. Jack Coghlan and Eddie Mallan have been omitted with Jasper Craven and Daniel Henderson coming in.

Josh Hall (injured) and Seb Tape (unavailable) are two big losses for Southport, but Wade Hancock returns and youngster Shawn Watson are in.

NT Thunder has made several changes as it prepares to host Sydney at TIO Stadium. Draft prospect Michael Mummery and experience midfielders Phillip Wills and Richard Tambling are back, but Hugo Drogemuller is among the outs due to injury.

Sydney has named an extended  bench due to its AFL side playing on Sunday, with Sam Reid (injured) and Colin O’Riordan (AFL debut) the notable outs.
