Jack Silvagni could become a third generation Carlton player when the Blues play St Kilda this weekend, while Travis Cloke is facing another fight to reestablish himself at Collingwood.

Silvagni – the son of Stephen and grandson of Serge – has been named on the extended bench for Sunday’s game after being named best-on-ground for the Northern Blues in the VFL last week.

Should he manage to make the cut the teenager will become the third draftee to debut for the Blues this year after No. 1 pick Jacob Weitering and fellow first-rounder Charlie Curnow.

The young forward, picked up by Carlton at pick 53 last year after Essendon lodged a bid for him with the previous selection, is known around the club as SOJ – son of Jo.

He has been included in the squad along with Liam Sumner and Andrew Phillips, with no player yet dropping out.

St Kilda picked a less settled side, with captain Nick Riewoldt one of four senior players ruled out because of injury.

Riewoldt’s knee complaint saw him miss selection, with Sean Dempster (knee) and young key position pair Paddy McCartin (concussion) and Hugh Goddard (Achilles) to also miss.

Luke Delaney, Tom Lee, Nathan Wright, Blake Acres, Darren Minchington, Jack Sinclair and Lewis Pierce were all named in the Saints’ extended squad.

Cloke was dropped for the Magpies’ Queen’s Birthday clash along with Adam Oxley, after taking six marks in a 13-possession, goalless game against Port Adelaide last week.

It was his first senior game in six weeks, after being dropped early in the season.

Nathan Brown, Jarrod Witts, Marley Williams, Jonathon Marsh and draftee Tom Phillips were all named in the 25-player squad.

Melbourne named Jack Viney in its team, less than two weeks after he broke a knuckle, and dropped small forward Jeff Garlett.

In other selection news, Todd Goldstein will return to the North Melbourne side after missing last week’s win over Richmond with a knee injury.

Majak Daw made way for Goldstein, with Aaron Mullett named to replace Sam Wright, who has an ankle injury.

Geelong recalled Rhys Stanley, forced to reshape their forward line after Tom Hawkins accepted a one-match suspension for striking.

Sam Reid will play his first game for Greater Western Sydney since 2013 in Sunday’s Sydney derby.

Reid was delisted by the Giants at the end of that season after struggling with a number of injuries, and took up a development coaching role at the club.

He was redrafted as a rookie at the end of last season and will play his 25th senior game almost three years after notching No. 24.

The Western Bulldogs lost second-year forward Toby McLean, calling up Mitch Honeychurch for his first senior game for the year.

Gold Coast dropped midfielder Aaron Hall – one of the team’s early season stars – with coach Rodney Eade sending him to the NEAFL to work on parts of his game that “need correction.”

Jeremy McGovern replaced the omitted Tom Cole in West Coast’s side, having recovered from illness, while Scott Thompson and David Mackay will replace Crows Ricky Henderson and Wayne Milera.

Fremantle captain Matthew Pavlich (groin), Jon Griffin and Michael Apeness (shoulder) will miss their club’s trip to Brisbane, replaced by Jack Hannath, Zac Clarke and Tanner Smith.

The Lions were also hit by injury, replacing Allen Christensen, Jackson Paine and the omitted Jono Freeman with Harris Andrews, Darcy Gardiner and the re-signed Rohan Bewick.
