St Kilda has made two changes ahead of its Round 9 clash against Geelong, with Jack Billings and Cooper Sharman welcomed back into the side.

Billings has impressed at VFL level since returning from a hamstring setback last fortnight, with his most recent classy display ending with 30 disposals and a goal to his name.

Meanwhile, Sharman has earned selection after putting together a series of strong performances for the Zebras, booting five goals in his last two games. The versatile forward was previously named on the team sheet for Round 2 as the medical sub, but was unused in the eventual win over Fremantle.

The recalled duo replace Dan Butler (injured) – who has not recovered in time from an achilles flare-up suffered against Melbourne – and first-year Saints Nasiah Wanganeen-Milera (managed) and Marcus Windhager (omitted).

Windhager, who was substituted into last week's game as the medical sub, has been named as an emergency alongside veteran Jarryn Geary, Jarrod Lienert and Ryan Byrnes.

St Kilda will host Geelong at Marvel Stadium on Saturday 14 May, with play starting from 4:35pm (AEST).

IN: Billings, Sharman
OUT: Butler (injured), Wanganeen-Milera (managed), Windhager (omitted)
