THE team is in for our Round 19 clash with North Melbourne. 

Patrick Cripps will return to the side after missing last week's game with soreness. 

The skipper’s return will be a welcome addition to the side, adding another big-bodied midfielder to the mix, as well as some class with ball in hand. 

With North’s midfield maturing nicely, it will be ideal to have Cripps back at his best in the middle. 

Matt Owies has been omitted while Brodie Kemp, Marc Murphy and Lochie O'Brien are emergencies, with one to be named the medical sub an hour before the bounce. 

Matthew Cottrell will retain his spot in the side, after being a late inclusion last weekend.

The rest of the lineup will remain unchanged on the back of the Blues' solid performance against the Pies last week. 

The game will begin at 1:45pm (AEST) on Saturday at Marvel Stadium.
