Jack Petruccelle (syndesmosis) and Alex Witherden (calf) will be assessed later this week, but they are likely to be cleared.

North Melbourne Kangaroos

Co-captain Jy Simpkin hasn't featured since Round 8, but he's ready for selection after recovering from a quad strain and should return to the lineup.

Recruit Brynn Teakle has the opportunity to make his debut for the Roos after being selected 15th overall in the mid-season draft. The versatile tall would be a valuable addition to the forward and ruck stocks, providing backup for spearhead Nick Larkey and primary big man Tristan Xerri.
