A severe concussion to North Launceston superstar Maggie Cuthbertson brought a premature end to the second Northern derby as Launceston came away 93-point victors at UTAS Stadium.
The match was called off less than two minutes into the final quarter following Cuthbertson receiving an accidental boot to the head as she attempted to tackle opponent Daria Bannister, who was Launceston's best player in the 15.9 (99) to 1.0 (6) win.
The undefeated Blues showed those in attendance why they are benchmark of the TSLW competition as they burst to a whopping 65-point lead at the main break with Bannister sitting on three goals.
North Melbourne's star added three more to her tally to finish with six as the Blues' AFLW and high-end talent was on show with the ladder-leaders looking to have paddocks of space on the open surface.
