North Melbourne will be forced to make at least one change at the selection table for Gather Round, after ruck-forward Callum Coleman-Jones ruptured his Achilles against the Blues last Friday.

Following another strong performance in the VFL over the long weekend, Tyler Sellers could be in line for an AFL debut.

Backing up his six-goal haul in the opening round of the season against the Northern Bullants, the forward booted another three majors against Carlton on Friday at Arden Street.


A tremendous outing in the reserves' recent fixture from Finnbar Maley has the rookie draftee right in the mix for a senior debut as well.

Maley clunked 13 grabs - many of which were contested – kicked two goals and collected 21 disposals to earn best-on-ground plaudits from VFL head coach Tom Lynch.


Veteran Hugh Greenwood poses as another potential replacement for Coleman-Jones, having been used in the ruck sporadically throughout the early stages of the VFL season.

Charlie Comben will be considered for a 2024 senior debut after notching 22 touches and 13 grabs against the Blues.

He's been looking comfortable behind the ball in his new role, but also has the capacity to pinch hit in the ruck and push forward if senior coach Alastair Clarkson feels the need to move the magnets.

Blake Drury (21 disposals, eight marks, two goals) has also raised his hand for a call-up. The second-year Roo was lively at half-forward, tallying a team-high eight inside 50s for the match.
