Round 14 1996.

North hosts Carlton at the MCG on a Friday night in the long awaited return match since the Blues belted North in the 95 Prelim on the way to becoming arguably the best premiership side of the modern era.

Both sides have fallen to ladder leaders Sydney over the previous fortnight and have a 10-3 win/loss scoreline when they meet.

Pagan plays funny buggers all over the place, with Duck starting at CHB, as the highly touted Eric Lissenden debuts for North in the key forward post, and Glenn Archer also starts forward.

Corey McKernan drags down 10 marks and has 20 hitouts to give Justin Madden a hiding in the ruck (7 hit outs)

Carlton supporters haven't forgotten about Wayne Schwass knocking Peter Dean out cold in the 95 prelim and boo every one of his 33 disposals on the way to a BOG performance, with North extracting revenge by 55 points.

Love reliving the glory days by viewing replays of these games away from the finals. The all nighter which followed this, and many other Friday night wins, was a night for the ages (and I remember very little of THAT).

Foxtel are playing replays again, they had Nth vs Essendon Round 17 2010 on the other day / night? (I recorded it and watched it last night).

Jamie McMillan's first game - the standout was that he laid 1 tackle.
Ben Speight's first game - what a pity he had that injury and was never the same after
Ben Warren and Aaron Edwards were good
Supergav meh
Swallow did his usual and tried to drag the team over the line - BOG for Nth
Lachie ok
Wells injured pre-game
Matty Campbell unsighted.
Levi ok
Goldy looked young and pretty average.
McIntosh slow and cumbersome
Scooter ok but it was the week after his father passed so could be excused if he wasn't 100% on the ball that night.
Josh Smith (!???)
No Grima, Ziebell, Wells, Lindsay, Tarrant, Sammy Wright, McMahon, Gartlett or (most importantly) Liam Anthony!

But the biggest ballsup was Brad Scott playing Hale, Goldstein and McIntosh all together, and none of them were great.

Geez looking back the team we put on the park that night was pretty average.

And worst part was another loss to the scum!

That was a very sweet win... I remember it (the euphoria) very well!
