ZACH TUOHY HAS returned from injury for Geelong ahead of their AFL Round 2 clash with Brisbane at home on Friday.

The Laois native missed his side’s opening round defeat to Adelaide after previously picking up a back injury in February. 

The AFL website writes that Tuohy has been recalled to the starting team for the 2020 Grand Finalists after impressing in a VFL hitout, which is the reserve league.

He slots into the centreline of the team that will host Brisbane at the GMHBA Stadium, while Kerry man — and 2015 All-Ireland minor winning captain — Mark O’Connor is also named to start in the backs.

Tuhoy reached a significant milestone in his AFL career when he became the second Irish player to reach 200 AFL appearances after Jim Stynes, having joined Geelong in 2017 from Carlton.

The Cats went on to reach the Grand Final last year, where they lost out to Richmond in what was his 205th AFL game.
