Melbourne in the mix: round 14

Get them in: Dom Tyson has been a prolific ball-winner at VFL level and is pressing his case for a recall. Harrison Pettycould make his debut if the Demons decide to go for another tall down back. Jeff Garlett is another in the selection frame, as are Sam Weideman, Tim Smith and Sam Frost.

Under the pump: Mitch Hannan, Charlie Spargo, Cameron Pedersen and James Harmes might find themselves under pressure.

Medical room: Jayden Hunt would have been pushing to be picked, but will now miss 4-6 weeks with an ankle complaint. Oscar McDonald (concussion) and Neville Jetta (shoulder) will face fitness tests.

Verdict: Spargo could go out for Garlett, with the youngster having had a good taste of senior football. Tyson will be difficult to overlook and could come in for Hannan. Petty is a serious chance of making his debut.
