Giants defender and former Magpie Lachie Keeffe will come into the side as Toby Greene’s replacement for Saturday’s preliminary final against Collingwood.

GWS’ appeal to overturn Greene’s ban to the AFL Appeals Board failed on Thursday night, meaning Greene will have to watch Saturday’s clash from the sidelines.

Collingwood and GWS will meet at the MCG at 4.35pm (AEST), with the winner advancing to the grand final.
