The Blues are set to blood debutant Angus Schumacher for Sunday’s clash against West Coast at Marvel Stadium, according to a report by AFL Media.

The 20-year old will come in to replace defender Dale Thomas due to an illness.

Schumacher was reportedly pulled from the VFL clash against Collingwood earlier in the day.

He was taken with pick No. 70 in the 2017 NAB AFL Draft.
