Swans recall Bradshaw, Shaw

Sydney have recalled key forward Daniel Bradshaw and defender Rhyce Shaw from injury for Saturday night's AFL clash against Collingwood.

The sixth-placed Swans are yet to beat a team in the top eight this season and haven't defeated the fourth-placed Magpies since 2005.

Swans coach Paul Roos said Patrick Veszpremi and Gary Rohan had been dropped for Bradshaw who has kicked 25 goals this season and Shaw, who was runner-up in last year's club award.

"Shaw and Bradshaw, they're automatic selections, so someone has to miss out," said Roos, who is getting closer to fielding a full strength side.

The Swans still have ruckman Mark Seaby and defender Craig Bolton on the injured list.

Bradshaw returns for the ANZ Stadium game after recovering from a knee injury while Shaw, a former Magpie, is back after one game out with a hip complaint.

Sydney's annual ANZ Stadium fixture against Collingwood is in its eighth year and has attracted a crowd of over 50,000 four times.

The game starts at 7.10pm (AEST) on Saturday.
