There are some key inclusion on the cards as St Kilda looks to bounce back onto the winners' list on Saturday night.

Awaiting them in the Harbour City are the Swans, who will be similarly keen to make a statement after falling to Port Adelaide last week.

In a massive selection boost for the Saints, skipper Jack Steele is set to return to the line-up with senior coach Brett Ratten confirming his inclusion in the team this morning.

Having been out of action for the first time since 2019 with a shoulder injury, the two-time All-Australian has trained strongly over the past few weeks and will be a welcome addition to St Kilda's midfield.

Averaging a healthy 28 disposals, six tackles and five clearances per game in 2022, Steele will be chomping to pull the red, white and black back on and lead his side out onto the SCG for the first time in six weeks.

Cooper Sharman

Following seven goals ins two weeks for Sandringham, Cooper Sharman has firmly put his hand up for selection against the Swans this week.

Presenting strong aerially and putting himself in good positions across the ground, the energetic high-flyer has thrust his name back into the conversation after his omission against Brisbane.

Should Sharman be selected, it will give Ratten’s men some further firepower with the Saints going inside-50.

Daniel McKenzie

Daniel McKenzie is a chance to return to the senior 22 after a week spent on the sidelines.

Having recovered from a concussion suffered against Brisbane, the No. 36 is a possibility to line up against the Swans as he looks to continue his solid form established in the first half of the season.

After breaking into the side following the bye last year, McKenzie has become a mainstay week in and week out, averaging 17 disposals per game for the year.

Marcus Windhager

If you wanted a response from Marcus Windhager after he was omitted last week, look no further than his outing in the VFL.

The 19-year-old midfielder blasted through the middle of the ground as he grabbed 32 disposals, 16 contested possessions, 12 clearances, six inside-50s and two goals to firmly put his name back in the mix.

Having not missed a match since his debut in Round 4 (with three games as the medical sub), Windhager has not looked out of place at senior level and has impressed the faithful with his on-field potential.

In contention

Having dominated in the ruck over the past few weeks, Tom Campbell has done his chances of an AFL return no harm.

The 200cm giant was a force to be reckoned with on Saturday, pulling down 37 hit-outs, 19 disposals and nine clearances in a commanding display.

Another who will be pushing for a recall is Jarrod Lienert, who returned for the Zebras this week after assuming the medical sub role against the Lions a week earlier.

The former Port Adelaide defender has consistently been on the brink of breaking back senior side, and after a performance of 27 disposals and six marks, he could see his name in the starting 22 for this week.

Meanwhile, Tom Highmore and Darragh Joyce continue their pushes for selection after collecting 24 and 19 touches apiece for the Zebras, while Mason Wood will be keen to return to the senior 22 after he was omitted last weekend.
