HIGH-PROFILE North Melbourne ruck prospect Majak Daw and Carlton swingman Lachie Henderson hit town at lunchtime, a day out from the Kangaroos-Blues NAB Challenge showdown at Eureka Stadium.
Both sidelined in rehabilitation from surgery, the pair are purely about promotion - but they might do a quick ground check for their teammates.
North Melbourne and Carlton's NAB Challenge match starts 4.40pm on Saturday with gates to open 3pm.
Their Victorian Football League affiliates North Ballarat Roosters and Northern Blues hit the ground for a pre-season match from 7.15pm - worth sticking around to see how each team's whole list is shaping up.
