Kangaroo co-captains Sarah King (l) and Jess Jones

Co-captains Sarah King and Jess Jones will lead a new-look North Melbourne in Saturday's VFLW season opener against the Western Bulldogs at Whitten Oval.

New recruit King will start on the ball against the Bulldogs after joining the Kangaroos from Collingwood during the off-season.

Jones, who set a high standard in every game for the Roos as standalone captain last season, has been named at centre half-back.

Ex-Magpies Matilda Zander and Nyakoat Dojiok are among the highly-credentialed recent arrivals who will get their first competitive outing in North Melbourne colours.

Zander claimed Collingwood's VFLW 2022 best and fairest award, while Dojiok is fresh off a selection at half-forward in the competition's 2023 Team of the Year.

Roos fans will also get their first look at former Bombers Renee Tierney and Alana Barba.

The pair have been named on the ball and in the centreline respectively.

The first bounce at Whitten Oval is scheduled for 12.05pm.
