As reported on Friday, North Melbourne has delisted 11 players, including comeback man Majak Daw.

Daw’s manager, Adam Ramanauskas, has reportedly said his man would be keen play on elsewhere if another club had a spot on their roster.

So where should Majak Daw go? These are three teams that should pick him up.

Carlton Blues
If Majak went to the Blues, it’d be a real steal. Why? Because Charlie Curnow is prone to injury, and with Matthew Kreuzer retiring he could be the perfect replacement as second ruckman or in the forward line.

Let’s be honest: Mitch McGovern has looked out of place all season, kicking only nine goals for the year as the marquee forward. Levi Casboult has looked awful in the past few games, missing opportunities and not taking simple marks. Replacing one of those players with Daw would be a perfect opportunity for Carlton to push to play finals.

As we saw in his early days with the Roos, Daw knows how to kick a bag, and that’s what Carlton need. Just imagine Harry McKay, Charlie Curnow and Majak Daw in the forward line together. It would be dangerous to come up against them – plus Eddie Betts is still running around. I’d watch this space if I were a Carlton fan.

Essendon Bombers
The Bombers would also make a lot of sense, especially with rumours Shaun McKernan will be delisted. And anyway, with Tom Bellchambers retiring, they need an explosive ruckman who can kick goals. Daw would be perfect for Ben Rutten’s men and would provide an option up the field as well.

Furthermore, Daw could be a perfect replacement for Joe Daniher, who looked awful against Melbourne in the final round, going goalless. He looks ready to leave the Dons for greener pastures. So, Bombers fans, do you think it could work? It sounds good to me.

Melbourne Demons
Majak Daw would look great in a Demons jumper according to Jayden Hunt when he spoke post-match to the ABC at the weekend. If Daw went to the Dees, he would form a great forward line that could finally start kicking bags of goals. Furthermore, he would help Christian Petracca’s game by providing a big forward for the midfielder to aim for. He would benefit Sam Weideman, who looks like the only genuine forward in the Melbourne team. Daw could be the difference for Melbourne to clinch a finals spot in 2021.

So, footy fans, where should Majak Daw play in 2021? Should it be the Blues, Dons or Dees – or is there another club?
