St Kilda’s reinvigorated line-up is primed and ready to begin its much-anticipated rise on Sunday afternoon against North Melbourne.

Much-hyped forward Max King is a confirmed starter for the red, white and black, joining St Kilda’s five star recruits in making their first appearances.

Bradley Hill, Zak Jones, Paddy Ryder, Dougal Howard and Dan Butler will add class and experience to all areas of the ground and provide plenty of excitement for the St Kilda faithful watching on from home.

Dylan Roberton, captain Jarryn Geary and Dan Hannebery will all make welcome returns after extended periods on the sidelines, with Roberton playing his first senior game in over 700 days.

Jack Sinclair, Josh Battle, Jonathon Marsh and Nick Coffield have been named as emergencies.

St Kilda will look to start its new era with a win against North Melbourne at Marvel Stadium, with an amended start-time of 1:05pm.
