The Western Bulldogs will welcome back popular skipper Bob Murphy when they open their AFL pre-season campaign against Melbourne.

Murphy missed last year's drought-breaking premiership after he suffered a season-ending knee injury against Hawthorn in round three.

Former Collingwood forward Travis Cloke and banned ex-Essendon forward Stewart Crameri were also named in the squad to face the Demons at Whitten Oval on Saturday.
