Michael Hurley and Jason Winderlich have been named in the final side to take on Melbourne this Sunday afternoon at the MCG.

Captain Jobe Watson goes out after surgery on his injured hip tendon and Cory Dell’Olio has been omitted.

Hurley will be a welcome inclusion to the Bomber defence with the Melbourne big men up forward including Chris Dawes and James Frawley.

Hurley has missed the last two matches after back spasms occurring from the round-nine match against Sydney.

Although close to playing last week in the game against GWS, Hurley was held back to ensure he had completed the required training to take to the field against the Dees.

Meanwhile Winderlich has recovered well from a virus that resulted in him being late withdrawal last week as the veteran makes his return into the side.
