The Cats have made a late change ahead of their meeting with Richmond at the MCG on Sunday afternoon to potentially combat the wintery conditions.

Forward James Parsons comes into the Geelong lineup, with big man Wylie Buzza making way. Parsons was originally dropped from the side that defeated North Melbourne last week, but returns to play his ninth game for the season.

The Tigers will go in as named.
