St Kilda has made two changes for its clash with Greater Western Sydney at Manuka Oval on Saturday, with returning midfielder Marcus Windhager joining debutant Hugo Garcia in the travelling team.

The pair replace Zak Jones and Angus Hastie, who have been omitted from the squad which defeated Richmond in Gather Round.

Dynamic midfielder/forward Garcia will work alongside his hard-hitting counterpart Windhager, who returns from a one-match suspension, adding grunt to a midfield that will line up against the ladder-leading Giants.

Taken at pick No. 50 in last year’s NAB AFL Draft, the 18-year-old earns his AFL opportunity off the back of a terrific VFL innings.


In just two VFL games, the speed machine has registered a commendable two goals, 36 disposals, eight clearances and 22 tackles, showcasing his raw yet versatile talent.

First-year Saints Lance Collard, Angus Hastie and veteran ruckman Tom Campbell have been named as this week’s emergencies, while the substitute will be named from the interchange bench one hour before the bounce.

The Saints and Giants will do battle from 1:45pm AEST on Saturday, with the match broadcast on Fox Footy and Kayo.
