North Melbourne’s Lindsay Thomas says he’s hopeful of a return to the Kangaroos side to take on ladder leaders Adelaide on Saturday.

Thomas (pictured) and Andrew Swallow were dropped to the VFL by North coach Brad Scott and says he was happy how both performed in  a rare turnout for VFL club Werribee.

Thomas booted four goals in the match and both he and Swallow contributed strongly in Werribees win.
