North Melbourne has run away with a 43-point win in Hobart.
Ben Brown broke the game open with an amazing five-goal third quarter.
Jarrad Waite (four goals) was influential in both arcs, while Jed Anderson (26 touches, eight clearances) owned the stoppages.

Jimmy Bartel said the Giants will need to do some soul-searching.
“I can imagine there’ll be some home truths,” Jimmy said.
“I know coaches can bottle up – and they wait for the Monday meeting to really let you have it.”

GWS leads a rollercoaster by five points.
A strong wind has created a scoring end, with North booting five goals to one in the first term.
But the Giants took advantage of it in the second with six goals of their own.
Jarrad Waite is leading the way with four goals.
Before the season, it would inconceivable that North would go into this game as favourites.
But the Kangaroos have been fantastic so far this year, and the Giants have been hit hard by injury.
This one is close to a genuine 50-50.
And with the sides both perched on the edge of the eight, the stakes could hardly be higher!
