Collingwood's Rocca misses out again

Collingwood key forward Anthony Rocca has again failed to make the team, with the Magpies making three forced changes for Sunday's AFL match against the Western Bulldogs.

Rocca was named on an extended bench on Thursday night, but was among the emergencies as the Magpies recalled Tyson Goldsack, Alan Toovey and Cameron Wood.

Key forward Travis Cloke is suspended, while ruckman Josh Fraser (knee) and small forward Leon Davis (ankle) are injured.

Rocca has missed the last three games through ankle soreness.

The in-form Bulldogs are unchanged for the Telstra Dome twilight game.

Melbourne again dropped veteran utility Adem Yze and Cale Morton was also omitted for Sunday's Canberra match against Sydney.

The 30-year-old Yze had played the last three games for the Demons after originally being axed following the round-one thrashing from Hawthorn.

Melbourne recalled Matthew Whelan and Mark Jamar and the Swans made no changes.

Carlton and Essendon made one change apiece for their MCG clash, with Andrew Lovett returning from illness for the Bombers and Jarrod Atkinson omitted.

The Blues recalled Steven Browne for Shaun Hampson.
