In what was billed as a 'top of the table' clash, the Bears were too good against a deflated Norths line-up.
The reigning premiers ran in 10 tries to two with five-eighth Adam Hayden (pictured) crossing for four tries.
It was a shock loss for Norths who were coming off a round nine 52-16 victory over Easts Tigers.
Next weekend, Norths travel to Davies Park with an opportunity to redeem themselves against last-placed Souths Logan Magpies. Hot favourites Burleigh have a home match at Pizzey Park and will take on fifth-placed Easts.
