Carlton have recalled big man Tom De Koning, just days after re-signing ruckman Marc Pittonet on a four-year extension, and dropped Jack Silvagni and Lewis Young ahead of Friday night’s clash with Sydney. The Blues’ decision to bring back De Koning, who will be out of contract at the end of the season, comes amid speculation that he will leave the club this year. The 23-year-old hasn’t played at AFL level since round five, but impressed in the reserves last week following two weeks out with concussion. Running defender Brodie Kemp, also elevated to the senior team, has been rewarded for his good form in the VFL. Carlton are desperate for a win after several weeks of disappointment while they continue to wait for the return of forward Jack Martin (calf) and defender Sam Durdin (hamstring). Martin is on track to come back next week, but Durdin’s timeline is still uncertain. The Swans have regained ruckman Tom Hickey as hoped, and he will give De Koning and Pittonet as much as they can handle on Friday night. Dylan Shiel was a late omission for the Dreamtime at the ‘G game but has proven his fitness this week, with the Bombers naming him to face the struggling West Coast in Perth on Saturday night. Jayden Laverde joins Matt Guelfi and Shiel in the side after recovering from a shoulder injury while the Eagles will receive some much-needed reinforcements. Elliot Yeo, Luke Edwards, Shannon Hurn and Tom Barrass are all back in for West Coast, who have been decimated by injuries in the opening 10 weeks of 2023. Alwyn Davey jnr, Kaine Baldwin and Massimo D’Ambrosio have been omitted and ruckman Andrew Phillips rested. St Kilda have lost Mitch Owens (concussion) as expected but otherwise will go into their clash with Hawthorn unchanged. The Hawks also remain unchanged but haven’t listed their substitute yet. Melbourne have called in James Harmes and Tom Sparrow to replace Clayton Oliver (hamstring) and Lachie Hunter (suspended) for their game against Fremantle on Saturday. Geelong have regained big man Sam De Koning following surgery for a facial fracture three weeks ago, plus Oisin Mullin and Oliver Henry for GWS’ visit on Saturday. The Giants were hit hard by injuries from last Sunday’s loss to St Kilda, with Harry Himmelberg, Josh Kelly and Nick Haynes sidelined. Cameron Fleeton was omitted. North Melbourne have named Ben Cunnington, Aidan Corr and Cam Zurhaar in their extended squad to face Collingwood at Marvel Stadium on Sunday. Adelaide and Brisbane hope to regain some big guns for their battle on Sunday evening. The Crows have named Taylor Walker, Tom Doedee and Ned McHenry in their extended squad. The Lions have named Daniel Rich, Darcy Gardiner and Deven Robertson among their team. Richmond have added Ben Miller, Sam Banks and Tylar Young to the squad to face Port Adelaide on Sunday, while the Power have brought back Hugh Jackson, Jase Burgoyne, Junior Rioli and Lachie Jones in their extended squad.
