GWS have made a late change ahead of their clash with the Western Bulldogs at Etihad Stadium on Friday night.

Defender Adam Tomlinson has been withdrawn from the squad, and will be replaced in the side by ruckman Dawson Simpson.

Simpson comes in for just his second appearance of the season, after facing Fremantle a fortnight ago.

The Dogs will go into the clash as selected.
