1. In Round 15, 2000 both Brisbane Lions and Melbourne had victories by a margin of 69 points. Is this the largest margin to be recorded twice in one round?

2. In Round 19, 1986 Footscray lost to North Melbourne by 57 points. The following week they defeated Melbourne by 57 points. Is this the largest number to be recorded as both a winning and losing margin in successive games by one team?

I remember North Melbourne and Essendon defeating Richmond and Hawthorn respectively by 74 points in R12 2004.

154-80 in both games.
