After last year’s infamous ‘dog story’ Jordan De Goey made the headlines yet again losing his licence for drink driving. The AFL media are starved for news in the pre-season so they were all over De Goey ’s latest mishap.

Friday night will be the star on-baller's first senior game this year, after he served a club suspension through the pre-season because of a drink driving offence.

His return was delayed further by a hamstring injury, but De Goey has impressed since returning through the VFL.

"He trained really well during the week, played very well in the VFL and looks ready to go," said Magpies assistant coach Garry Hocking.

De Goey has replaced Taylor Adams, who suffered a hamstring injury during the week at training.

Star forward Jamie Elliott also hurt his hamstring at training, further delaying his AFL return.

The Crows also made one change, recalling Darcy Fogarty for fellow youngster Lachlan Murphy - another hamstring casualty.

Adelaide defender Daniel Talia only walked laps at Thursday morning training, but the Crows are confident he will play his 150th senior game against the Magpies.

"Every now and then, and clearly off a six-day break at Etihad Stadium, those guys are old enough ... we let them go about how they want to go about their preparation for the game," said assistant coach Scott Camporeale said.

The Crows will start warm favourites after winning their last two games, plus Collingwood have lost all four of their Adelaide Oval games.

But after a poor round-one loss to Richmond, Collingwood were valiant against GWS and last week beat Carlton.
