North Melbourne Kangaroos new boy Aidan Corr says he is delighted with how training has gone so far, following his arrival from Greater Western Sydney.

The 26-year-old had not been asked to return to training until the turn of the year, but opted to come in earlier to work with the first-to-fourth year players from early on in December.

It got me in good nick (returning early) and I really enjoyed training.

And backman Corr is happy with the way things have started at his new club, having left the Giants as a free agent after seven years in Sydney.

He told North Media: "To actually get out on the track, that's where you really get to know the boys and I was really keen to get going.

"I was really excited to get back. The boys were training hard, they were flying and it really got me going.

"It got me in good nick (returning early) and I really enjoyed training. The balls were flying around and it shows how hungry they are for the year. It was really good."

Corr played just short of 100 times for GWS before his departure at the end of the 2020 AFL season, in which the Giants finished in tenth place in the regular season standings, with the Kangaroos have ended up down in 17th position.

North Melbourne won only three of the 17 games they played, the same record as the Adelaide Crows, who propped up the AFL ladder.

The Roos can be backed at 15/2 to secure a top-eight finish this season, with the Crows available at 5/1.
