West Coast goalsneak Phil Matera has been named to return from injury for Saturday's AFL grand final against Sydney at the MCG.

Matera has missed West Coast's first two finals with a groin injury, and will have to prove his fitness at the Eagles' final training session at the MCG on Friday.

The Eagles have also called up young midfielder Sam Butler for his first game since round 18.

They replace Michael Braun and Rowan Jones, both forced out of the side that beat Adelaide in last week's preliminary final with knee injuries.

West Coast also did not include defender Brett Jones, who has been battling a quadriceps injury this week.

The Swans have named an unchanged side from the one that beat St Kilda in their preliminary final last weekend.
