Max King and Seb Ross will both return to the line-up in time for Saturday's elimination final between St Kilda and GWS at the MCG.

Ross was required to pass a fitness test after injuring his hamstring almost three weeks ago, successfully getting through this morning's training to make himself available for what will be his third career final.

Meanwhile, King comes into Saturday's contested refreshed and raring to go after overcoming soreness which saw him miss the club's final game of the home-and-away season against Brisbane.

Ryan Byrnes (substitute), Liam Stocker (omitted) and Jack Hayes (injured) come out of the line-up for Saturday, with Byrnes and Stocker joining Dougal Howard and Tom Campbell as emergencies. 

Veteran defender Jimmy Webster will play his first final in what will be his 150th career game, while Josh Battle will reach the 100-game mark after seven seasons in red, white and black.

St Kilda and GWS will play for a place in next week's semi-final, with the Saturday's blockbuster at the 'G to kick off at 3:20pm.
