10. North Melbourne 2017 pre-season
There were brutal scenes down at Arden Street during the 2017 pre-season, with Brayden Preuss, a rugby league convert, spear tackling Andrew Swallow during an intra-club match, invoking a heated wrestle on the ground.
During the same session, Luke McDonald’s overzealous spoil hit Lindsay Thomas on the back of the head, which led to their own scuffle and a war of words as the pair went at it all match.
It was McDonald’s second domestic in the past month, having fiercly tangled with Shaun Higgins at an earlier training session.
“He’s (McDonald) competitive — that’s his biggest trait and that’s why he got drafted where he did. That’s what we love about him,” Swallow told reporters post-game.
Brad Scott was sure making a mark on this team.
