Tanking? Pffft! North Melbourne put a huge dent in Melbourne's top-four aims with a gusty win against the odds in Hobart.
Our Inside Football experts take a look at the individual performances of each player...
NORTH MELBOURNE – 11.10 (76)
Shaun ATLEY – 5
Good early, then quiet second term. Bad miss at start of second half.
Ben BROWN – 9
Gave McDonald and Frost nightmares. Ended with four goals and was Roos' best in famous win.
Ryan CLARKE – 7
Won his fair share of ball in midfield. Hard worker around the contests and never stopped running.
Ben CUNNINGTON – 7
Good in close and works hard defensively. Stepped up a gear when needed in final term.
Majak DAW – 3
Rucked and floated forward to cause mismatches. Other than late mark, did nothing.
Trent DUMONT – 5
Quiet first half and efficiency was down when he got it. A bit better in final hour.
Sam DURDIN – 5
Stationed back but went forward for periods with the wind. Did a few good things.
Taylor GARNER – 6
Took some nice marks, but missed a sitter in third term. Great run down tackle on Oliver in last quarter a momentum setter.
Sam GIBSON – 6
Linked well off a wing to play a steady role.
Shaun HIGGINS – 7
Used ball well and had some key touches – including a goal – in final term stand.
Nathan HROVAT – 5
Had some smart touches in the front half. Okay without starring.
Luke MCDONALD – 7
Gave drive off a wing and at half back. Massive goal in third term and got the Roos rolling.
Declan MOUNTFORD – 4
Went to Garlett. Copped a knock in first term but came back on. Had trouble with Jeffy.
Aaron MULLETT – 6
Had plenty to do across half back when kicking into the wind. Crunched by Hogan in third term and was sore.
Daniel NIELSON – 6
Spent long periods on Watts and stood up well for a player in just his fourth game. Good effort.
Braydon PREUSS – 3
Back in the team and not a factor outside of ruck contests.
Jy SIMPKIN – 6
Nice goal in second quarter and kicked the eventual winner into the wind.
Andrew SWALLOW – 7
Industrious early on and was an expert at throwing himself forward to earn free kicks. Smart effort.
Robbie TARRANT – 5
Had job on Hogan until the Dee departed. Not a big say stats-wise.
Scott THOMPSON – 7
Sat loose when kicking into the breeze and even kicked a long goal. Part of a resolute back six.
Jarrad WAITE – 3
Lively start in attack, then troubled by calf problem and done for the day in third quarter.
Jack ZIEBELL – 7
Returned from a week off and rolled up sleeves to help will his team forward in frenetic final term.
MELBOURNE – 10.12 (72)
Sam FROST – 2
Defensively suspect when taking his turn on Brown. Has to be better than that.
Jeff GARLETT – 6
Kicked two into the wind in first term, but then missed a few gettable shots that proved costly.
Max GAWN – 7
A real factor in the ruck against Preuss and Daw, but aside from Oliver, Dees mids couldn’t capitalise.
Mitch HANNAN – 1
Tweaked elbow in second term and had no impact at all – zero kicks.
James HARMES – 4
In and out of the contest through middle and at half forward.
Michael HIBBERD – 7
Roos tried to negate his impact off half back but won a lot of the ball. Good again.
Jesse HOGAN – 2
Not easy opposed to Tarrant in such windy conditions. Injured arm/shoulder in third term and was done.
Jayden HUNT – 6
Slow start, but had big finish to second quarter. Late turnover sealed Dees fate.
Neville JETTA – 6
Booted in jaw by Daw early, then wasn’t totally himself for a while. Better in second half.
Chipped in with some important contributions but drifted out of the game when it counted.
Jordan LEWIS – 7
Played loose into the wind and positioned himself very well. Team-orientated game.
Oscar MCDONALD – 1
Terrible defensively. Flogged by Brown when on him. Just so slow to react to his opponent’s movements.
Tom MCDONALD – 6
Copped an early knock to cheek, but a hard worker in attack. Kicked two goals.
Jake MELKSHAM – 4
Two smart goals in second quarter, but then wasn’t really a factor.
Alex NEAL-BULLEN – 3
Made bad decisions when he got it. A really poor outing after making great strides in recent weeks.
Clayton OLIVER – 8
A genius with his hands and work in tight areas. Kicked smart goal and had 13 clearances. Had few mates when it got it tough.
Caught a few times, but then had trademark bursts. Had to impose himself in final term, but didn’t.
Christian SALEM – 5
Clean with most things he did at half back but then was a bit of a spectator.
Jack TRENGOVE – 3
Slow to cover the ground and a few basic turnovers were punished.
Dom TYSON – 7
Huge first half with 20 possessions. Influence waned a touch, but wasn’t allowed as much room.
Jack VINEY – 4
Just eight touches in opening hour and struggled to get into the game.
Jack WATTS – 2
Lacked intensity in attack when he had to step up. Nowhere near his best after return from injury.
