North Melbourne will take five new faces west this weekend for their round one AFL clash with Fremantle - including one with a premiership-winning surname.
Bailey Scott, son of 1996 flag-winner Robert, will debut in the Kangaroos' season opener alongside a few of coach Brad Scott's new recruits.
The four other trade arrivals - Aaron Hall, Jasper Pittard, Jared Polec and Dom Tyson - are all set to travel west, though Brad Scott wouldn't confirm their place in the side ahead of final team lodgement on Friday.
Robbie Tarrant and Marley Williams, meanwhile, were passed fit to play.
But the 18-year-old Scott will lace up for his first match after impressing his coach, having been taken at pick No.49 in last year's draft.
"He's been selected fully on merit," Brad Scott said ahead of Sunday's match.
"He's truly worthy of his spot and we're looking forward to him play."
Bailey Scott was picked up by the Kangaroos as a father-son selection, eschewing the same possibility with Geelong, where Robert also played.
He could have also stayed at Gold Coast after time in the Suns' academy.
Brad Scott backed the teenager - with a draft weight of 74kg - to compete despite his slight frame.
"In terms of playing against AFL players, that was a slight query, but he'd played a fair bit of footy in the NEAFL against AFL-listed players and grown men ... I'm more concerned about his strength," Brad Scott said.
"He's fought to hold his feet in the contest. He's won his fair share of one on ones. His weight on the scales is irrelevant."
Having successfully made his off-season trade moves and put them in the frame for debuts, Brad Scott said he'd now look to get his midfield to gel.
"It's a slightly different system that they're coming into but they've played a lot of AFL footy," Brad Scott said of his new recruits.
"We're not asking them to dramatically change the make-up of our team ... We want them to play the role we set them for."
Brad Scott also said he was "expecting Fremantle at their best" despite the club standing down key forward Jesse Hogan on mental health grounds.
