Brandon Batchelor returns to Aspley’s lineup as it prepares to host ladder leaders Southport at Graham Rd in a blockbuster contest on Saturday afternoon.

Batchelor is the Hornets only change, with Brad Dale omitted for the 1.30pm match.

The Sharks have lost Dylan Mutu and Jordan Taylor (both injured), with Tom Ellard and Jaicob Kenny their replacements.

Meanwhile, Canberra has brought back defender Ben Halse and forward Jacob Turner for its big battle with Sydney at Phillip Oval. Sam Tonkes and Luke Robertson (both omitted) are out.

The Swans have named an extended bench due to their AFL side playing on Sunday, with Jack Maibaum, Harry Marsh and Toby Pink all injured.

Both Gold Coast and the GIANTS have been hit hard at the selection table ahead of a must-win game to keep their finals aspirations alive.

The SUNS lose Matthew Rosa (injured), Jack Leslie (AFL), Pearce Hanley (AFL) and Ben Ainsworth (AFL), whilst the GIANTS will debut four new players to cover the losses of AFL-listed players Matt De Boer (AFL), Aiden Bonar (AFL), Tim Mohr (injured) and Jack Buckley (injured).

Captain Hayden Bertoli-Simmonds is a welcome boost to Redland ahead of its clash with NT Thunder in Darwin on Saturday night.

Luke O’Sullivan is another handy inclusion alongside Lions Academy members Jesse Quint and Jai Kennealy. Experienced duo Adam Boon and Damian Steven (both unavailable) are the forced changes.

Experienced troops Cameron Ilett, Matt Campbell and Braedon McLean are back in for NT Thunder, with Malcolm Rosas set for his NEAFL debut.
