Round 21 will kick off at the MCG in a Friday night blockbuster as the Hawks clash with the Magpies. Hawthorn will be strengthened by the return of superstars Luke Hodge from a thumb injury, Grant Birchall who is back after eight weeks battling a knee injury and Lance Franklin who missed last weekend due to hamstring soreness. Matt Spangher and Sam Grimley are omitted, with Jonathan Simpkin named as an emergency. Collingwood’s team remains unchanged.

At the MCG on Saturday the Tigers take on the Blues. Ricky Petterd comes back into the Richmond side, being rested for two weeks with a groin injury meanwhile Dylan Grimes will play his first AFL match since round 6. Chris Newman has been sidelined with a minor ankle injury along with Robin Nahas who was omitted.
For Carlton, Chris Judd is out with a knee injury as he heads the Blue’s injury list including Matthew Watson (foot) and Jeff Garlett (glute). On a positive note, midfielder Nick Graham will debut for Carlton as Levi Casboult, Mitch Robinson, Andrew McInnes, Tom Bell all are named to play.

Also on Saturday, the Bombers will meet the Kangaroos. Essendon has made a number of changes following the suspension of Patrick Ryder and Dustin Fletcher, Scott Gumbleton out with thigh soreness and Jason Winderlich suffering hamstring tightness. Stewart Crameri, Nick O’Brien, Joe Daniher and Leroy Jetta will replace them along with Lauchlan Dalgleish who will make his debut this weekend.
North Melbourne replaces Taylor Hine with Nathan Grima who is returning from back soreness and Brad McKenzie who has played well in the VFL. Taylor Garner has been included as an emergency for the Roos.
