NORTH MELBOURNE 16.11 (107) BRISBANE 16.8 (104)
“I’m sure Cam Rayner and his career at this footy club will make up for that one over and over again.
“We’ll just wrap our arms around him and celebrate the fact that he’s at our club and know that he’s going to be a great player going forward.” It was a huge reprieve for the Kangaroos, who largely had the better of the game, even though the Lions had them beaten in all the major statistics except for contested possessions (147-131).
The win ensures they remain right in the hunt for September action. The result is North’s sixth consecutive triumph over Brisbane, a run of dominance that stretches four years.
