North Mel­bourne’s Shaun Hig­gins will spend up to six weeks on the side­lines af­ter hav­ing surgery on his in­jured shoul­der.

Hig­gins, the club’s best and fairest for the past two years, in­jured his right AC joint when he landed awk­wardly in a tackle dur­ing Satur­day’s win over Gold Coast.

“Hig­gins’ ab­sence will hurt us, but it also pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity for one of our younger mids to step up,” North foot­ball boss Cameron Joyce said yes­ter­day.

“We have the likes of Paul Ah­ern, Bai­ley Scott, Ky­ron Hay­den, Tay­lor Garner and Cur­tis Tay­lor.”
