Top spot is on the line for Sydney after the Hawks stumbled in Perth on Friday night. 

The Swans will leapfrog Hawthorn if they win in Hobart on account of their vastly superior percentage.

But the Kangas have enough on the line of their own.

Despite their ballistic start to the year, North’s finals spot is still to be confirmed, with Melbourne waiting in the wings to pounce on any further hiccups.

Can North finally put their nerves to bed? Or will the Swans take a big step toward the minor Premiership?
