CANBERRA has made four changes to its line-up ahead of Saturday afternoon's Round 8 clash with Redland at Scottsdale Park.
Former Sydney Swans academy player Luke Robertson has been rewarded for his form in the AFL Canberra competition making his Canberra debut having already played NEAFL for the Sydney Swans.
Robertson will play in defence alongside the returning Ben Halse, the Demons 2017 Players' Player returns to the side for the first time since the 2017.
Robertson and Halse join Alex Smout and Luke McKay as the side’s inclusions, coming in for an injured Matt Vardenega who suffered a broken thumb in Canberra's win over GWS last month. Harry Carry, Donald Roberts and Jack Nunn have been omitted from the side.
Redland Bombers (10th) v Canberra Demons (5th) at Scottsdale Park, 12pm
