In: Lienert, Lycett

Out: Bonner (omitted), Marshall (injured), Woodcock (omitted)

PORT ADELAIDE has made two changes for Saturday’s meeting with the Gold Coast, with experienced ruckman Scott Lycett among the inclusions.

Lycett has spent five weeks on the sidelines after a four-week suspension was stretched an extra week because of the bye.

He will be joined in the Port Adelaide line-up by defender Jarrod Lienert who has been rewarded for consistently strong form at SANFL level.

Lienert has yet to feature at AFL level this season, with his last game at the level coming in the win over Collingwood in Round 18 last year.

Ladhams and Lienert replace Riley Bonner (omitted), Todd Marshall, who has been ruled out while recovering from a concussion, and Boyd Woodcock (omitted), who replaced Marshall as the medical substitute early in the piece against Geelong.

Experienced backman Hamish Hartlett has been named among the emergencies, along with Martin Frederick, Sam Mayes and Woodcock.

The medical substitute will be confirmed from that list of players an hour before the game.

Any player not required at AFL level will be eligible to play at SANFL level for Port Adelaide against Sturt at Alberton Oval on Sunday.

Port Adelaide will take on Gold Coast at Metricon Stadium on Saturday from 1:15pm ACST / 1:45pm AEST.
