Two debutants are among North Melbourne's four changes for Round 5, after Bigoa Nyuon earned selection in the Kangaroos' team to play Geelong on Sunday.

Nyuon's club debut was revealed during the club's team selection meeting on Friday afternoon. 


The former Tiger joins Tyler Sellers, whose AFL debut was confirmed when the team trained earlier on Friday.


Nyuon, 22, played his lone AFL game to date for Richmond in 2022, before crossing to Arden St in the 2023 Trade Period.

Sellers, 21, joined the Kangaroos as a supplementary signing in February and caught selectors' eyes with a six-goal haul in the reserves' opening round win over the Northern Bullants.


Blake Drury and Charlie Lazzaro are this week's other inclusions. It will be Drury's first AFL outing for 2024 after he played four games in his debut year, while Lazzaro will play his fourth game this season, having missed last weekend's match against Brisbane.

Forward Cam Zurhaar comes out of the team after experiencing calf tightness this week, and veteran Liam Shiels is sidelined with general soreness. Kallan Dawson misses with an ankle complaint, while Jaidyn Stephenson has been omitted from the team that lost to the Lions.

Tom Powell is in line to play his 50th AFL game, having been named on the half-forward line.

Meanwhile Charlie Comben keeps his spot in North Melbourne's backline after impressing in his long-awaited AFL return against Brisbane.

Joining Sellers and Drury on the interchange bench are Dylan Stephens and George Wardlaw, with Lazzaro locked in as the substitute.

Will Phillips, Jackson Archer and Robert Hansen jnr are this week's emergencies.
