Luke McDonald is facing another stint on the sidelines after lasting less than a quarter of his senior return.
Three top 40 draft picks, three rounds, three AFL debuts.
North Melbourne coach David Noble has confirmed Jaidyn Stephenson, Aidan Corr and Lachie Young will debut on Sunday.
Paul Roos says the lure of working with great people at North Melbourne was too good to ignore.
"He adds that balance, poise, speed on the mix with (Ben) Cunnington, (Jed) Anderson, (Jy) Simpkin, so he creates a nice blend in there."
“North fans can be really excited about the game-plan he’s (David Noble) going to bring to the club this year."
North Melbourne made seven selections at the 2020 NAB AFL Draft and Rookie Drafts.
Will Phillips heads to Arden St after the Roos snared him with pick 3 – the club’s highest selection since 2006.
