Round seven will be the time for young stars to shine in the Warrnambool and District league.
Dennington's Jackson Creed, 19, will play his first senior match for the club after crossing from South Warrnambool.
The Dogs will also give big man Josh Lock his first run in three years when they take on Allansford.
Dennington playing coach Mick Phillips is likely to miss two to three weeks with the rib injury he sustained against East Warrnambool.
Cats mentor Ben Price said he was keen to "get back on the winner's list" and has promoted Blair Oakley from the reserves while Dylan Cross returns.
Old Collegians has a debutant of its own with Jordan Telford to step up from the juniors for the Russells Creek clash.
Coach Nick Sheehan said Telford and returning star Izaac Dwyer would add dash to the Warriors line up.
Creek has Harry Hall, 19, playing his first match of the year after he injured his ankle during pre-season.
Coach Peter Timms said he was pleased to have his centre half-back return.
"We certainly missed him," he said
"He'll free up Ryan Bunney."
Creek's William McPhee is back from an ankle injury he sustained in round one.
Timms has also promoted Coedie Carter and Liam Dwyer for their good form.
Kolora-Noorat has loaded up for its match of the round clash against Merrivale with stars Scott Judd and Mark Clissold back.
But the Power will be without one of their best, with Brad Johnson to miss with a sore back.
Merrivale has some huge outs with Jye Wilson and key forward Josh Britton to miss.
Coach Jason Rowan said Britton had a fractured rib and bruised lung and could miss two weeks.
Wilson will rest to recover from shin splints.
East Warrnambool is looking for two in a row when it meets South Rovers and will be bolstered by the inclusion of Tim Chatfield who can play forward and onball.
But the Bombers will be without Cody Richards who is expected to miss a couple of weeks with an ankle injury.
The Lions bring back ruckman Tom Bowman who missed last week.
They too will be after two wins on the trot after a successful four quarter effort in round six.
Coach Adam Matheson said his side was focused on its final kick inside 50 and making the most of its opportunities.
Nirranda has three handy inclusions with William Paulin, John Paulin and Aaron Searle returning.
Timboon Demon's coach Marcus Hickey has brought in Brandon Barnett for James Faulkner who has a groin injury.
