Atu Bosenavulagi says the future at North Melbourne looks a bright one and he is keen to play a role after arriving from Collingwood.

The 20-year-old was not offered a deal by the Magpies, who also shipped out the likes of Adam Treloar during the Trade Period, but thankfully the Roos came in and offered him a deal.

North hope it is the start of a bright new era for them after they confirmed the appointment of new head coach David Noble on Friday and Bosenavulagi can certainly see the potential.

The talented speedster says he is delighted to have joined the club and cannot wait to get stuck into pre-season training.

"Seeing North with a lot of good, young players and good leadership there, I thought I’d like to be part of it and show what I can do. That’s why I took the opportunity," Bosenavulagi told SEN.

"(It’s) a club that’s growing, having good people there and good facilities.

"I knew a lot of people there, and I was just glad to see they were going in the right direction and having a lot of young players there. It’s definitely looking good."

Bosenavulagi made just three appearances for Collingwood last season, but will be looking to build on that with the Roos.

His versatility will certainly make him a big asset as he can play at half-back, through the middle and in attack.

When asked about a potential role in the midfield, the youngster said he would be up for it.

"I’d have to improve my fitness to get there, but I’d have the traits for it," Bosenavulagi added.

North are priced at 200/1 to win the AFL grand final.
