I don't reckon any player changes are needed. Maybe Taz for Walker if Taz is fit.

The venue is interesting.
Do we want it in Tassie which may suit them with the conditions?
Or do we want it on the faster Marvel deck given we are playing quicker lately?

From the HS:

Gold Coast’s game against Melbourne will almost certainly be moved from Darwin to Queensland while North Melbourne’s fifth home game in Hobart is set to go ahead when it hosts Geelong in front of a crowd.

The Roos and Cats will share a charter plane to fly in and out of Tasmania on gameday as the AFL establishes the “sterile corridor” is has been working feverishly on with state governments.

The “sterile corridor” will allow clubs in Victoria to fly north to Queensland and south to Tasmania after living under quarantine conditions for 60 hours and abiding by strict protocols.

Sterile corridor? So much for future father/ sons. Damn you AFL!

I don't think we'll play Will and we'll probably start Polec.

Zurhaar needs to fix that shoulder and we might as well call his season now. Probably should do the same with Tarrant.

No game is going to be "easy" so Ford may get the look in if Zurhaar misses, and probably should. If not maybe Powell if he's ok for another run.

Surely thingo Scott will seek clarity from the afl as to why the game isn't being played at gmhbakardinia parkstadium, even if just because its a North home game and it's not fair.

Would be a great game to set the team for the next 4 rounds and our future beyond - what an opportunity!

I'm talking Hayden, Lazzaro, Comben, Ford,
Pat Walker, Spicer and Will Walker.

All banging the door down at VFL and all ready to go and give these next 4 rounds a shake up!









(For the love of God, please lose North 😭)
