North Melbourne have some big injury concerns despite their mammoth first term against Adelaide at Blundstone Arena.
Late inclusion Corey Wagner hurt his ankle in an early contest and spent a significant amount of time in the rooms.
Key forward Ben Brown also went down to the rooms after being crunched in some friendly fire by Jack Ziebell and appearing to injure his shoulder.
The injuries haven’t affected North’s early momentum — they hold an astonishing 10.4 (64) to 0.0 (0) lead at quarter time.
Returning forward Jarrad Waite booted three first term snags, including this one which was his second in thirty seconds.
The other seven goals have been to seven different players.
