St Kilda recruit Jack Steele has been a surprise omission from the Saints squad to take on North Melbourne.
Reporters at the team's training have said that Steele has been dropped - not injured - and will be replaced in the side by Luke Dunstan.
Steele had his quietest game for the club last week against Adelaide, registering only 15 touches and 4 tackles - both well below his average.
The midfielder made the move to St Kilda in the off-season from the GWS Giants.
