KANGAROOS coach Brad Scott says exciting ruck/forward prospect Majak Daw is a strong chance to make his debut against Collingwood at Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

If selected, the 21-year-old would become the first Sudanese-born AFL player.

"There's not going to be a spot gifted to him, he's going to have to earn his spot in our best 22, but his development has just been fantastic," Scott said.

"We think he's an absolutely viable option. I'm not just using coaching clichés when I say he's in the mix. He's genuinely in the mix."

Recruits Ben Jacobs (Port) and Taylor Hine (Suns) could also debut against the Pies.
