Crows boost firepower for Swans clash

Adelaide have been given a huge selection boost for Sunday's AFL clash with Sydney, with star forwards Brett Burton and Jason Porplyzia among four inclusions.

The pair add significant firepower for the AAMI Stadium fixture, after missing the big opening round loss to Fremantle through injury.

Ruckman Ivan Maric also returns from injury, with young utility James Sellar the other addition.

The Crows were forced to omit Scott Stevens (concussion) and Rory Sloane (ankle), but dropped Jonathon Griffin and Tony Armstrong.

The Swans made one change to the side that lost narrowly to St Kilda, Daniel Hannebery replacing Ted Richards.

Essendon dropped young key forward Jay Neagle and utility Kyle Reimers for Sunday's match against Fremantle at Etihad Stadium.

Neagle managed just three marks and one goal in the opening round loss to Geelong and also botched a golden chance to goal at a crucial time in the third term, when he played on and was caught after marking 30m out.

Experienced midfielder Mark McVeigh returns from suspension, with youngster David Myers the other inclusion.

The Dockers did not change the side that belted the Crows.

The Western Bulldogs will hand a debut to former Geelong rookie-listed 24-year-old Brodie Moles against Richmond at the MCG on Sunday.

They also regained versatile defender Dale Morris from injury and left out Josh Hill and Dylan Addison.

The Tigers lost Ben Cousins (knee) and Relton Roberts (club-imposed suspension), replaced by Jake King, who returns from suspension, and Jayden Post.
