Collingwood have recalled Andrew Krakouer, dropping Dayne Beams for Sunday's AFL match against the Western Bulldogs at the MCG.

Beams was subbed off for the last quarter of Monday's Anzac Day win over Essendon, having kicked two goals.

Krakouer, recruited for this season after three years out of the AFL, played the opening four games, before being dropped for the Bombers clash.

Ruckman Darren Jolly is out with a knee injury, replaced by Cameron Wood.

The Bulldogs lost Barry Hall (ankle), Ben Hudson (soreness) and Shaun Higgins (soreness) to injury, and dropped Brennan Stack.

Hall is also in doubt for the Dogs' match against Sydney next round, after having minor surgery on Thursday night.

Will Minson, Brodie Moles, Dylan Addison and Liam Jones were brought in.

Gold Coast made three changes for Sunday's Etihad Stadium meeting with Essendon, despite posting their maiden AFL victory against Port Adelaide last weekend.

That included handing AFL debuts to Liam Patrick and Steven May, with Matt Shaw the other incoming player.

Patrick is the cousin of Melbourne forward Liam Jurrah and, like Jurrah, is a high-leaping forward.

The Suns lost experienced defender Nathan Bock to suspension and dropped Maverick Weller and Daniel Gorringe.

Essendon mature-age recruit Michael Hibberd will make his AFL debut, at the expense of Jake Melksham.
