North Melbourne's players hit the track for a competitive session on Friday, with a little over two weeks until the return of games.

The players went head-to-head in several drills, and there was a fierce approach around the contest.

"We’ve missed it [footy] for the last 10 or 11 weeks … it’s good to be back out there and hit some bodies," Jy Simpkin told North Media.
