Essendon have made a late change ahead of their Good Friday clash with North Melbourne at Marvel Stadium.

Despite being named to play in the VFL this weekend, Joe Daniher will come into the side, replacing Zac Clarke.

The Bombers will pay a financial sanction due to Daniher not being selected as an emergency.

Daniher has not taken the field since his side’s round seven clash against Hawthorn last year after dealing with osteitis pubis before suffering a calf setback in the pre-season.

The Kangaroos are yet to finalise their 22.
