Maxwell, Milburn ruled out

Collingwood captain Nick Maxwell and Geelong veteran Darren Milburn are late withdrawals from Friday night's AFL blockbuster at the MCG.

Maxwell had been in doubt all week because of a calf muscle injury, while a back problem has sidelined Milburn.

Tyson Goldsack replaces Maxwell for his first senior match since being a member of last year's premiership team.

Allen Christensen will take Milburn's place.

A crowd of at least 70,000 is expected for the clash between the only unbeaten teams so far this season, despite a week of bleak winter conditions.

The persistent rain this week has forced the closure of most MCG car parks.
