As promised last week, it's an all-positive edition of the Notebook, featuring Richmond and Liam Baker, the Suns and Izak Rankine, along with Brisbane's favourable matchup against Port Adelaide.
Although wind in Hobart makes for an exponentially funnier game, from a long-term development perspective it was great for it to take a rare Sunday off.
In today’s Notebook there’s a look at how the Bulldogs beat Essendon’s pressure, Brisbane’s movement around stoppages and all the what ifs in the final stages of Carlton v Port Adelaide.
Against Richmond, in an attempt to rectify recent ball movement woes, the dial was pushed way too far towards attack.
It’s so relaxing being able to sit back and enjoy the last quarter with a result already in hand.
Well, well, well. How good was that?
It’s game day at the SCG; North Melbourne’s first game at the venue since Round 10, 2016.
There shouldn't be any element of surprise for North Melbourne when it faces a Sydney side without Franklin and Hannebery for the second consecutive week.
