AFL teams round 1: All the teams for the opening round of the 2022 season

A Hawks gun who played every game last season has been dumped, while a former Tigers father-son will be making his debut in new colours.

Hawthorn has left wingman Tom Phillips out of its clash with North Melbourne on Sunday as Changkouth Jiath is set to make his return from injury.

Phillips played every game in his first season at the Hawks in 2021 after being part of Collingwood’s off-season firesale in the 2020 trade period.

SCROLL DOWN FOR ALL THE ROUND 1 TEAM LINE-UPS

Wayne Milera, named on the interchange, will officially make his return for the Crows after two games in the last two years, while North Melbourne recruit Callum Coleman-Jones will make his debut for the club.

Recent West Coast addition Patrick Naish, who also trained with St Kilda over the off-season in pursuit of a list spot, will make his debut for the Eagles along with homegrown draftee Brady Hough.

The former Richmond father-son selection played nine matches for the Tigers across four seasons before being delisted at the end of last year.

Crafty goalkicker Alex Sexton is another notable omission, named as an emergency for Gold Coast.

Meanwhile, Essendon has named three debutants for its clash with Geelong, including rookies Nic Martin and Kaine Baldwin after promising pre-seasons, along with free agency recruit Jake Kelly, who will line-up for his first game as a Bomber.

Livewire Jake Stringer won’t play in Round 1 with coach Ben Rutten conceding “he hasn’t done a huge amount of work recently.”

Stringer had been under an injury cloud with a troublesome groin through the pre-season with the Bombers coach deciding not to rush his star midfielder-forward back in.

“We want the best version of Jake and to build him up to succeed throughout the whole season,” Rutten said.

“Stringer won’t play this weekend. He hasn’t done a huge amount of work recently.

“Shiel will be fine. He’ll play. He’s had a consistent pre-season and is ready to go.
