Teams: Seagulls bolstered by key inclusions
Williamstown will welcome back a number of key players to the lineup for Sunday's important clash with western rivals Werribee at Burbank Oval.
Arryn Siposs, Josh Newman and Jack Dorgan will all return for the Seagulls as they search for a win that will confirm a home final.
Tristan Davies comes out of the team while Daylan Kempster and Mitch Norton come into the extended squad. Tom Condon will again play as 23rd man.
It's set to be a huge day for the Seagulls with captain Ben Jolley set to play his 250th VFL game. The 31-year old becomes just the eighth player in VFA/VFL history to reach the milestone, whose form has not wavered despite being the most experienced player in the VFL currently.
Senior coach Andrew Collins will be coaching his 200th game of VFL football, becoming only the tenth coach in VFA/VFL history to reach that mark, while Jack Dorgan will play his 50th VFL game after suffering three knee reconstructions earlier in his career.
The equation is simple for he Development team, sitting half a game outside of the finals four, but with a game in hand, winning performances will see them make the finals, with this week's clash against Werribee being the first chance to get that scenario underway.
There will be a familiar surname running around with the Development team, with Bendigo Pioneer Darby Henderson, son of former Development coach Brett, pulling on the blue and gold.
The Development game gets underway at 11.00am followed by the seniors at 2.00pm, which will be live streamed on vfl.com.au.
