The Magpies has put an off-season of tumult behind them to hold off arch rivals Carlton by 21 points in a fast-paced clash at the MCG.
- Darcy Moore was immense in defence for the Magpies in their win over the Blues
- Jordan De Goey kicked four goals for the Magpies and Brody Mihocek managed three majors
- The Blues are winless after two rounds
Inspired by dynamite forward Jordan De Goey and defender Darcy Moore, the Magpies carved through a leaky Blues defence while their own back-half stood up admirably.
