Nahas steps up

Robin Nahas has been promoted onto North Melbourne's senior list and could play this weekend.

Robin Nahas could line up against the Saints this weekend, with North promoting the small forward on to the senior list.

With injuries to Kayne Turner (hamstring), Jed Anderson (hamstring) and Taylor Garner (hamstring), plus Lindsay Thomas’ one week suspension, Nahas would be the perfect replacement, should the match committee decide on a like-for-like option.

The 28-year-old was promoted from the rookie list in place of Anderson, who was placed on the long term injury list on March 31 for a minimum eight week period.

Nahas’ VFL form with Werribee has been strong and he sits equal eighth on the goal kicking ladder with seven from three games.

He played 18 games last year, including the Roos’ Elimination Final victory over Richmond at the MCG.
