Majak Daw will play his first game of the season after North Melbourne were forced to make a late change.
He will replace Robbie Tarrant, who will miss with hamstring tightness.
"Robbie Tarrant's just pulled up a bit sore in his hamstring," Brad Scott explained to Triple M.
"It's not a strain...but there is risk involved."
Melbourne will go in unchanged.
Triple M's Damian Barrett broke the news that former Collingwood and Fremantle forward John Anthony was sacked from his local footy club.
