during the round 12 AFL match between the Geelong Cats and the North Melbourne Kangaroos at GMHBA Stadium on June 9, 2018 in Geelong, Australia.

North Melbourne have made a change ahead of their clash with the Bombers at Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Midfielder Paul Ahern comes into the team, replacing tagger Ben Jacobs. Ahern will play his fourth game for the club and was originally dropped from last week’s side that narrowly defeated the Bulldogs by two points.

Essendon will go in as named.
