North Melbourne ruck-forward Majak Daw admits he is under pressure to live up to his potential after the clubs exodus of senior players.The powerful big man has shown glimpses of talent in his four seasons with the Kangaroos but has struggled with injuries and inconsistent form, managing just 25 career games.Now injury-free and hopeful of getting a full pre-season under his belt, Daw is placing high expectations on himself.I want to have a big impact on the team, he said on Tuesday.Im 25, turning 26. Ive been at the club for a long time and I think I know the expectation.Being able to run out four-quarter efforts ... now I dont have any injuries and I can complete a full pre-season, thats the area Ill be looking to improve.Daw played just nine games this year but booted four goals in North Melbournes elimination final loss to Adelaide and was rewarded with a three-year contract.He is likely to receive more senior opportunities this season following the departure of forward stalwart Drew Petrie, who was axed by the Kangaroos on the eve of the finals alongside Brent Harvey, Nick Dal Santo and Michael Firrito.The veteran quartets controversial departure leaves plenty of onus on the less experienced Kangaroos to improve their performance after just scraping through to the finals this year.Therell be more opportunities for guys like me, Mason Wood, all these young guys that are coming through, Daw said.Its obviously going to be a differently-structured team but its only four guys that have left. Its a massive loss of experience but I think we all know what the expectation is and were a pretty competitive young group.The Kangaroos will soon vote on a new captain to replace Andrew Swallow, with midfielder Jack Ziebell expected to take the reins.Hes the most likely candidate and if he becomes captain, everyone will be so happy for him because hes such a young leader and hes been groomed for such a long time, Daw said.But weve got some really good young leaders at the club. Theres a few candidates.
