Collingwood has confirmed top draft pick Jaidyn Stephenson and former Sydney rookie Sam Murray will both make their AFL debut on Saturday.
Stephenson, Collingwood's first pick from the 2017 AFL draft, was handy in the pre-season with 13 disposals in each of his two games.
Murray will play his first game after spending two years on Sydney's rookie list, being named in the NEAFL team of the year in 2017.
He played one game in the JLT series, with 24 disposals and nine marks against the Western Bulldogs.
Collingwood skipper Scott Pendlebury joined Triple M's Hot Breakfast on Tuesday morning to hit back at some criticism from former Brisbane champ Jonathan Brown.
