If Ben Brown had any Subiaco-related nightmares after last year's preliminary final, it didn't show in North Melbourne's return bout with West Coast on Sunday. The Devonport product was his side's shining light in attack, kicking 4.0, including two goals of the spectacular variety, in the loss to the Eagles. Brown had 14 possessions,&nbsp;took five marks and laid three tackles. The 23-year-old&nbsp;looked far from the player that was criticised for having no impact either in the air or in front of sticks when the Kangaroos' 2015 season ended. Sunday was a good day for Coastal exports, with Burnie's Maverick Weller playing a key role in St Kilda's win over Essendon. After a slow start, he kicked two late goals&nbsp;which gave the Saints the lead and then some breathing space. Weller had 13 touches, laid two tackles, took two marks and kicked 2.1. His &nbsp;brother Lachie had 10 touches and laid three tackles in Fremantle’s loss to Melbourne. He also picked up a $1000 fine for front-on contact on&nbsp;Jayden Hunt. Clarence's Jack Riewoldt kicked 2.3 from 12 possessions and seven&nbsp;marks as Richmond fell to the Western Bulldogs, while Dodges Ferry's Jeremy Howe had another strong game for Collingwood in the win over Greater Western Sydney. Starting in defence and pushing forward, Howe had 22 touches, took six marks and laid five&nbsp;tackles. Hobart's Aaron Hall continued his strong form since returning to the Gold Coast side, with 29 touches, three marks and six tackles in the Suns' QClash win. Launceston's Kade Kolodjashnij had 16 possessions,&nbsp;three marks and two tackles. Lauderdale's Mitch Robinson had 21 touches, took five marks and laid eight&nbsp;tackles while&nbsp;tagging Gary Ablett. Clarence's Josh Green kicked 1.3 from 17 touches and four marks for Brisbane. Launceston's Jake Kolodjashnij had nine touches and laid five tackles in Geelong's loss to Sydney, while Devonport’s Grant Birchall had 19 touches and took six marks as Hawthorn saw off Port Adelaide. Lauderdale's Andrew Phillips won 19 hit-outs and had nine touches in Carlton's loss to Adelaide.
