Matthew Richardson wonders whether North Melbourne had gone early with their decision.

“Seriously, North Melbourne’s game plan was all over the place early in the year,” he said.

“They were so slow and just didn’t get it inside 50.

“I’d just be a little bit careful, because I think when he comes back, gets fit and they’re back at Marvel Stadium and work out their ball movement I still think Ben Brown can kick 50 goals.”
