Collingwood has named captain Nathan Buckley and defender Shane Wakelin in its squad to play Fremantle this weekend, with decisions on their fitness to be at the eleventh hour.

Buckley is thought to be carrying a hamstring strain while Wakelin has multiple facial fractures following last weekend's loss to Brisbane.

South Australian David King is also in the Magpies squad and expected to make his debut.

The Dockers have named Matthew Carr in their squad despite an ankle problem.

Port Adelaide lost forward Stuart Dew to a shoulder injury for Saturday's trip to take on Melbourne.

Dew suffered the injury in last weekend's game and it deteriorated during the week.

He will be replaced by 26-year-old former Collingwood and Western Bulldogs defender Josh Mahoney while Brendon Lade returns in ruck.

The Demons named Peter Walsh and Troy Broadbridge to replace the injured Peter Vardy and Darren Jolly.

Brisbane has predictably rested full-forward Alastair Lynch for Saturday's trip to West Coast despite claiming before his successful tribunal defence that he would make a rare appearance in Perth.

Daniel Bradshaw is his forward replacement after shaking off a calf strain while Northern Territorian Anthony Corrie will make his debut.
