Round 5 team: Werribee vs Collingwood

Joel Bennett will make his VFL debut with Werribee when it takes on Collingwood at Avalon Airport Oval on Saturday.

The 21-year-old midfielder has been named to take the vacant 23rd player position on the back of a best-on-ground performance for Geelong Football League side Geelong West Giants on Saturday.

Outgoing 23rd player Jack Henderson has retained his spot in the extended squad and may yet be elevated to the main 22 after he finished atop the coaches’ votes with his defensive performance against Richmond.

Nick Buykx and Jason Robinson remain a chance to be elevated to the starting team after holding their place in the extended line-up, while Brad Xavier has also been added as a possible inclusion.

The match kicks off at 5pm on Saturday and incorporates the Werribee Past Players & Officials Day.
