“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.
