NORTH Melbourne's athletic big man Majak Daw is a late withdrawal from the Kangaroos' clash against GWS in Hobart on Saturday.

Daw didn't travel with the Kangaroos to their southern home after failing to overcome a concussion sustained at training during the week, and has been replaced in the selected side by 20-year-old Ryan Clarke, who'll start from the bench in his seventh game for the Roos.

Despite missing today, Daw is expected to be available for next week's Good Friday match against the Bulldogs.

The Giants did not release the reason for their late change, but will be going in without Matt Buntine, who was replaced in the selected side by Aidan Corr.
