Eagles forward Jack Darling is out of the side due to an ankle injury.
He had been replaced by Will Schofeild.
“I hate missing games of footy,” Darling said.
“Tonight would have been a great game, but unfortunately the ankle didn’t come quite up. The five-day break didn’t help.
“I’ll just get it right and build into training next week and hopefully be right for next week.”
Sydney go into the clash as named.
