St Kilda has replenished its stocks heading into Saturday's match against North Melbourne, with returning key forwards Max King and Jack Hayes among the four changes.

The pair will be accompanied by the experienced Mason Wood and Jimmy Webster, whose returns from respective injury and suspension will be a welcome addition as the Roos hunt for their first win of the season.

The Saints' forward line will be without omitted duo Cooper Sharman and Anthony Caminiti, along with Jack Higgins for the next three weeks after his suspension for rough conduct was upheld by the Tribunal on Tuesday evening, with Zaine Cordy (managed) rounding out the changes for Round 8.

Hayes returns to the line-up for the first time since Round 24 of last season following a stellar VFL outing which yielded three goals in a dominant display both in the air and at ground level, while King has ticked all the right boxes after wrenching his knee against the Giants in Round 5.

Angus Hastie will also play his first full game for the club after serving as substitute in his three matches to-date, again piecing together an influential performance in the VFL after playing a quarter for St Kilda the previous evening.

Cordy, Lance Collard and Tom Campbell have been named as emergencies.

St Kilda and North Melbourne will meet at Marvel Stadium on Saturday 4 May, with play commencing at 4:35pm.
