North Melbourne will look to call on its full list to play senior football, should the AFL proceed with shorter breaks between games.

The postponement of the season, until at least the start of June, has seen the idea floated of reduced quarter lengths and multiple matches in a single week. 

While the plan is still very much up in the air, Rhyce Shaw says North will be prepared, whatever the scenario. 

"We might have to look at with three or four-day breaks, substituting players into the team and see how they (those playing) go, off three or four days," Shaw told Fox Footy.

“If you’ve got to do that two, three, four times in a row, you’re going to have to use depth players.

“Everyone on our list is going to play a part in our season, if it does end up like that."

Shaw said the idea of potentially decreasing list sizes would be difficult, particularly in the current climate. 

"I’d suggest we’d be looking at keeping our lists the way they are, if we are going to be playing ever three or four days, back to back," he added.
