Selection: Daicos gets his chance

The Swoop: Round 15 The round 15 episode of the Swoop, brought to you by La Trobe Financial.

Collingwood has called up small forward Josh Daicos for the clash against North Melbourne at Marvel Stadium on Saturday night.

Daicos form has been damaging in Collingwood’s VFL side for a number of weeks, and earns senior selection for the first time this season.

The 20-year-old is averaging 22 disposals and has kicked four goals at VFL level.

Jeremy Howe has been ruled out after injuring his calf against the Western Bulldogs.

The Magpies have named Tyler Brown, Ben Crocker, Max Lynch and Matt Scharenberg as the emergencies.

The first bounce is set for 7.25pm, with Marvel Stadium expected to attract 41,000 fans.

Taylor Adams (groin), Jamie Elliott (hamstring) and Jaidyn Stephenson (suspension) were unavailable for selection.
