AFL Teams - Round 16

COLLINGWOOD midfield star Dayne Beams is back for his first AFL game of the year, to bolster the Magpies team to face Adelaide at the MCG on Friday night.

Beams, 23, suffered a bad quad injury in lead-up the Magpies season-opening match way back in April, with the problem turning out to be a lot worse than initially anticipated.

Beams' inclusion will bolster the Pies' already star-studded midfield brigade, but the Maggies' backline will again be without All-Australian defender Harry O'Brien.

After he missed last week's Friday night clash with arch-rivals Carlton, O'Brien made a stunning admission of personal problems this week and did not finish a full training session.

Adelaide are coming off a dramatic loss to West Coast last weekend and named Jarryd Lyons and David Mackay to return to the side.

The Crows lost big man Shaun McKernan, who was suspended for two matches for elbowing.

St Kilda face a Saturday night blockbuster clash with Carlton at Etihad Stadium and will welcome back skipper Nick Riewoldt for the match, after the champion forward was rested due to soreness last weekend.

The Saints also included controversial forward pocket Stephen Milneafter he sat out the past three matches amid the goalsneak facing charges of four counts of rape.

The Blues included veteran on-baller Heath Scotland, who is back from adductor problem, while Sam Rowe is into the side to replace the injured Jarrad Waite.

Fremantle were forced to cover the loss of important defender Luke McPharlin, who will miss over a month with a calf injury, bringing in fringe backman Alex Silvagni for their clash with cross-town foes West Coast in Perth on Sunday.

The Eagles included Ash Smith, Cale Morton and Scott Lycett in an extended squad, with no sign of midfield stars Luke Shuey and Daniel Kerr.

Other major selection moves over Round 16 were:

-- Gold Coast superstar skipper Gary Ablett is back from a calf injury, for the Suns' trip to Cairns to face Richmond on Saturday evening

-- The Tigers named important ruck star Ivan Maric after he recovered from a groin problem, as well as including forward Ricky Petterd

-- Geelong made two massive inclusions, with superstar Steve Johnson and small forward Travis Varcoe back into the side to face Melbourne at Simonds Stadium on Sunday

-- Varcoe is set to play his first game since Round 3 when he suffered a serious shoulder injury

-- But, the Cats lost two key veterans in Joel Corey, who has a concussion, while Corey Enright is out with a foot problem

-- Hawthorn dumped on-baller Brad Sewell from the side to face Port Adelaide at AAMI Stadium on Saturday, replacing him with Brent Guerra

-- Port lost star forward Justin Westhoff, after he failed to have a striking ban overturne at the AFL Tribunal on Tuesday night, with big John Butcher in to face the Hawks

-- Essendon lost crucial midfielder Jobe Watson to a broken collarbone, with Kyle Hardingham, Leroy Jetta and Nathan Lovett-Murray named in the squad to take on the Western Bulldogs at Etihad on Sunday

-- The Bulldogs swung in midfield veteran Daniel Cross and utility Dylan Addison in to face the powerhouse Bombers

-- And Sydney lost key forward Sam Reid to a recurring quad problem, with Jesse White called up for the Swans' clash with cross-city rivals Greater Western Sydney at the SCG on Sunday
