It was a historic night for the North Melbourne Tasmanian Kangaroos, as their inaugural season was launched in style at the State Library in Melbourne.

An enthusiastic crowd of over 300 patrons packed into a picturesque Isabelle Fraser Room to celebrate the latest chapter in the club’s storied 150-year history.

“We’re writing chapters in a book, which is currently blank. It all starts now,” North AFLW senior coach Scott Gowans said.
