Zak Jones will return to the senior line-up as St Kilda prepares to embark on its first finals campaign since 2011.
The hard-hitting on-baller – who has played in seven finals for Sydney – comes in for Josh Battle, who will miss the club's landmark berth through foot soreness.
Jones missed Round 18 against GWS with a hamstring strain, but has benefitted from the pre-finals bye to make himself available for Saturday afternoon's clash with the Bulldogs.
Nicholas Hind, Dylan Roberton, Jonathon Marsh and Shane Savage have been named as emergencies.
A win against the red, white and blue will see the Saints advance to a semi-final between either Richmond or Brisbane, likely to be played at the Gabba.
St Kilda will face the Western Bulldogs on Saturday 3 October at the Gabba, with the opening bounce set for 4:40pm.
OUT: Battle (injured)
