Caroline Wilson understands the North Melbourne player who claims he heard an umpire say Lindsay Thomas was a ‘ducker’ and therefore wouldn’t pay him high-tackle free kicks has backed away from his comment.

Wilson said North will release a statement saying they were wrong, but the AFL will want an apology from the club.

North Melbourne has won just one of its past three matches, but still sits atop the AFL ladder.

Hot on their heels, however, are the rampaging Hawks, who are warming up as we hit the second half of the season.

North will have to take on the champs without captain Andrew Swallow, key midfielder Ben Cunnington, and leading goal-kicker Jarrad Waite.

Hawthorn, by contrast, only gets stronger, welcoming back star Sam Mitchell among three changes.

Last time these two teams met, tension boiled over as the undisciplined Hawks overstepped the line.

Will tempers flare again in 2016? 

Join the No. 1 commentary team in the game on 3AW Football.

TODAY’S LINE-UP from 6PM: Matthew Lloyd, Tony Shaw, Dwayne Russell, Bruce Eva, Mick Warner, Doc Larkins, and Sam ‘Scoop’ McClure.
