A change of pace today, with the Round 5 post focusing on a handful of individuals and their progress...
It’s fair to say coach David Noble is firmly in experimental mode, and will be for some time yet. On Sunday we saw the newest lever pulled.

Let’s step away from the football field for a moment. Every day, whether it be at work, social circles, spare time, or anything in between, we’re all aiming to achieve something.
Given North Melbourne’s current status, it’s too simplistic to look at weekends as win = good, loss = bad.
It’s time for week three of the line-by-line look at North Melbourne. First it was the forwards, then the defenders, and finally a look at the midfield.
Over the final month of the season, I’ll be using each game to look at a separate line of the field. Round 14 was all about the forwards, Round 16 is all about the defenders.
Considering North Melbourne just lost by 63 points with only seven fewer inside 50s, it seems an opportune time to focus on just what happens when there’s minimal forward pressure

First things first, an apology for no post last week. Thankfully there's a post this week with plenty to discuss both from a team and individual perspective.
