With Jaidyn Stephenson set to miss several weeks through injury, North Melbourne will be forced into making at least one change.

David Noble could call on a number of players as he continues to search for a winning formula.

North Media looks at who is in the mix.

Trent Dumont got through an injury hit VFL game unscathed, finishing with 24 disposals and 9 tackles as he split his time between the midfield and the forward line.

Noble has said Dumont will need to hit some key metrics in his GPS data to be considered for a comeback, but the midfielder is definitely putting his hand up.

Impressively spending 100 per cent time on ground on against Southport, Tristan Xerri put together one of the most complete performances of his young career, finishing with 26 disposals, 21 hitouts and 10 clearances.

With Todd Goldstein and Tom Campbell currently getting the nod at AFL level, Xerri is certainly keeping the pressure on.

Taylor Garner spent some time running through the midfield against Southport and registered 19 disposals and 7 marks. He could come into North’s forward line if Noble wants to call on some proven AFL quality.

Eddie Ford continues to develop at VFL level as he looks to go one step further than his Round 6 emergency listing. The forward has impressed with his body positioning and physicality around the contest, and spent some time running through the midfield in the VFL last weekend.

Bailey Scott and Atu Bosenavulagi were both emergencies for the Collingwood clash and could provide fresh legs.

Moving into the backline since arriving at North, Bosenavulagi has impressed in his three senior games.

Scott, who played the first five rounds of the season, has been putting his hand up with some solid VFL performances, most recently collecting 18 disposals and kicking a goal against Casey.
