North Melbourne has made one change to its side which travels to take on Gold Coast this weekend. 

Defender Jamie Macmillan has been ruled out with a calf issue, with Sam Durdin coming in to replace him.

Durdin has played one AFL match this season against Geelong where North were beaten by 24 points.

The Kangaroos have won three of their last five games, including last week for new coach Rhyce Shaw’s first match at the helm. 

Shaw and SUNS Senior Coach Stuart Dew are no strangers, with the new North coach having played at Sydney while Dew was on the Swans’ coaching staff. 

Saturday’s match at Metricon Stadium gets underway at 4:35pm.
