    The opposition

    The Lions enter Round 4 following a complete rout of the Swans at Brighton Homes Arena, with the home side coming away with a 55-point triumph.

    Reigning League best-and-fairest winner Ally Anderson was at her ball-winning best with 27 disposals and seven inside 50s, while Courtney Hodder and hard-running winger Sophie Conway booted three goals each.

    Although Brisbane currently sits on the periphery of the top four with a 2-1 record, it has managed to defeat the Roos in each of the three meetings the clubs have had in the AFLW's short history.

    The in-form Roo

    Jasmine Garner

    The AFLW coaches' votes tell you all you need to know about how dominant Garner has been from the opening bounce in Round 1 to the final siren in Round 3.

    The premier onballer has polled 30 out of a possible 30 AFLCA AFLW Champion Player of the Year Award votes, becoming just the second player in competition history to achieve the feat.

    She'll travel to Tasmania fresh off tallying 32 disposals, 12 clearances, 12 tackles, nine inside 50s, and a goal against flag contenders Geelong.

    Last time we met

    North Melbourne Tasmanian Kangaroos 3.8 (26) def. by Brisbane 5.3 (33), Round 7, 2022 S7

    As the push for finals ramped up, the Roos were made to rue their missed opportunities in Round 7 last season, as they fell to the Lions by seven points at Arden Street Oval.

    North Melbourne was in control of the contest for large portions of the clash, but inaccuracy down forward left the door ajar for Craig Starcevich's group which managed to grind out a tough win.

    Garner and Emma Kearney were influential for the home side with 21 and 19 possessions respectively, while Brisbane's Anderson collected game-highs for disposals (24) and clearances (seven).

    AFLW R4 match report: Roos fall to the Lions in a thriller

    The North Melbourne Tasmanian Kangaroos's undefeated streak has come to an end at UTAS Stadium on Sunday afternoon

    Brisbane's undefeated record over the North Melbourne Tasmanian Kangaroos remains intact after it stormed home for an enthralling two-point victory.

    Down by 18 points at half-time, the Lions kicked four goals to one after the main break to pinch a 5.5 (35) to 5.3 (33) victory at UTAS Stadium in Launceston.

    Emma Kearney was paid a free kick in the dying seconds but North Melbourne's captain was 60m out from the Kangaroos' goal and her shot dropped short.

    05:48

    The Lions' theme song had already started playing as Kearney attempted what would have been the greatest goal in AFLW history.

    It was a heartbreaking loss for North Melbourne, who seemed destined to move to 4-0 this season and remain undefeated in Tasmania.

    The Lions had won all previous matches against North dating back to 2021.

    Shannon Campbell, best-on-ground as a defender in the Lions' grand final defeat to Melbourne last year, kicked the match-winning goal on her 27th birthday.

    Her snap in the dying stages put the Lions in front for the first time since early in the match, coming only minutes after she dropped a regulation mark in the goalsquare.

    The Lions turned the match around after being belted in the midfield in the first half as North stars Ash Riddell and Jasmine Garner led the way.

    00:28

    League best-and-fairest Ally Anderson was everywhere for the Lions after half-time, while Lily Postlethwaite and captain Bre Koenen slotted important goals in the third quarter.

    North Melbourne's Nicole Bresnehan missed the entire second half with a suspected ankle injury.

    The result leaves the Kangaroos and the Lions at 3-1, with reigning premiers Melbourne and perennial powerhouse Adelaide the only undefeated teams this season.
