Jack Sinclair and Matty Parker will join the red, white and black’s ranks for the first time in 2020, while Nicholas Hind has been recalled ahead of Saturday’s clash with Port Adelaide.

Sinclair was named as an emergency for the Saints’ past seven games before earning a call-up off the back of his dominant scratch match performances.

Josh Battle (injured) will miss this week’s match with a minor facial fracture and mild concussion, with the five-day turnaround ruling him out in line with the AFL’s concussion protocols.

Round 7 debutant Ryan Byrnes and small forward Jack Lonie are the omissions, and have been selected as emergencies alongside Jonathon Marsh and Daniel McKenzie.

St Kilda will battle Port Adelaide on Saturday 25 July at Adelaide Oval, with the opening bounce at 7:40 AEST.
