There are growing calls for North Melbourne to give Sudanese-born Majak Daw his first AFL game. Daw has been exciting the Kangaroos' fans with recent good form with North Melbourne's VFL feeder club Werribee.

worldfootynews.com readers will be keen to see the former refugee make his debut, providing a role model for young African players. The powerfully built player is still relatively new to footy and although North's coach Brad Scott has ruled out a first game this week, he made clear that Daw is on the rise.

"His improvement's been extraordinary. I look at him six months ago and I would have thought he was miles away from being able to play AFL footy, but his improvement was so rapid that we gave him an opportunity in the NAB Cup and he performed quite well in there. If he continues to improve at that rate then he'll be a pretty handy AFL player," Scott said.
