Team: Four ins for North

After missing the last fortnight, Taylor Garner is among four inclusions to return to the North Melbourne side on Sunday.

Garner’s last game at the MCG was the 2015 Elimination Final, and he’s joined on Sunday by the Kangaroo who was captain of the side at the time.

Good VFL form for Werribee has earned Andrew Swallow a recall for the clash against Melbourne, as he replaces the concussed Trent Dumont.

Jarrad Waite and Aaron Mullett are the other two inclusions, the latter also returning from a fortnight off with injury.

Jed Anderson has been ruled out with a foot injury after being stomped on last weekend.

“Jed’s injury wasn’t apparent to the coaches and didn’t stop him from playing out the game, however it has become progressively worse this week,” North GM Football Cameron Joyce said.

“Jed had a fitness test at main training today and hoped to be available for the game on Sunday but was subsequently ruled out by the medical team.”
