Big defender Griffin Logue is set to play his first game in nearly a year, after being named in the VFL side to face the Demons at Casey Fields on Sunday.

Logue, who is expected to play managed minutes against the Demons, last played in July 2023, when he suffered an ACL injury.

He is one of five changes to the North Melbourne side that defeated Collingwood last weekend.


First-year Kangaroo Colby McKercher also returns for his first competitive game since he earned a Rising Star nomination at AFL level in Round 9, after recovering from bone stress in his foot, while athletic tall Bigoa Nyuon will start after overcoming a hip pointer complaint.

Jaidyn Stephenson, who returns to the reserves after being omitted from the AFL team, and Alex Noblett are the Roos' other inclusions. 

Luckless youngster Brayden George is among the outs after his second ACL injury was confirmed this week. Dylan Stephens makes way after being recalled to the AFL side for Saturday night's MCG clash against Melbourne, Louis Butler misses through injury, while Will Lambert and Hamish Murphy have been omitted.
