North Melbourne turn off the Power at AAMI Stadium

By Arden Fast.

Dean Laidley's men put in a brilliant performance on Sat nite to put the Roos remarkable head to head record against Port Adelaide back on track after last years finals debacle. Laidley is known around the club as "The Bible" because he's so hard to read. But his post match sentiments were clear as he praised newcomers Josh Gibson, Cameron Thurley and Kasey Green and rookie big man Hamish McIntosh who put in a sterling performance in the ruck. After Port jumped us in the first term, the cliched Shinboner spirit came to the fore led as always by the likes of Glenn Archer and skipper Adam Simpson. A flash of brilliance by Daniel Wells silenced the crowd spurred on by some early uncharacteristic misktakes and we rolled on over the top of the Teal pretenders eventually blowing the margin out to 41 points.

There's nothing more beautiful than a quiet AAMI stadium ... except when the mob is baying for blood and the ump keeps giving 50 metre penalties to your side!!!

We're off to the Cattery this week and as usual no-one gives us a chance, but you write off the Rooboys at your peril.
