Debut: Yet to debut

SUMMARY
A teammate of Adam Cerra at Eastern Ranges, North was taken at pick no.65 in the 2017 National Draft. Showed his potential to be a damaging midfielder during his draft year, with a 43-disposal three-goal performance against Bendigo in the TAC Cup.

WHAT THE COACH SAYS (Marc Webb)
Tom is another inside midfielder and we’ve also worked through looking at him playing forward as well at times. He’s clean inside the contest and around clearances. We’ve been working on his ability as a forward to pressure around the contest.
