Kangaroo Drew Petrie farewells fans after the loss.
Former North Melbourne big man Drew Petrie will play AFL in 2017, according to Sam McClure.
Speaking on the 3AW Sports Today program, Sam said Petrie is set to play on for the Eagles after being cut by the Kangaroos this season.
Petrie played 316 for North Melbourne before being one of four veterans being told their time was up at the club.
Brent Harvey, Nick Dal Santo and Michael Firritto were the other three players who were given the news, and have all since hung up the boots.
