AFL Live Melbourne Demons vs North Melbourne Kangaroos Stream AFL Football 2015 Online, AFL Round 19 Match will be kick off at Melbourne Cricket Ground Stadium, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia Sunday 09 August 2015 online, 13.10 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
The Dees look to break a nine year drought against the Roos whilst North looks to continue to shore up a finals berth.
The Dees have added Mark Jamar, Ben Newton and Matt Jones with no omissions thus far. They are still without Sam Frost, Dean Kent, Christian Petracca and Jack Trengove. North have Ryan Bastinac (omitted) and Michael Firrito (suspension) out with Lachie Hansen, Robin Nahas, Majak Daw, Aaron Mullett and Max Warren in the extended squad. They are missing three players from their best 22.
The Demons are 14th on the ladder with six wins and 11 losses after beating Collingwood last week. They’ve won two of their last three. They rank 16th in scoring and 13th for most points conceded this season. They’re 0-4 both head to head and against the line vs top eight this season. North have won their last four games by an average of 50-point to be seventh on the ladder. They rank third in scoring and 11th for most points conceded this season. They are 8-2 (6-4 against the line) vs bottom ten teams this year.
North currently hold a 13-game winning streak over the Dees. Melbourne last beat North in 2006 when Byron Pickett (playing for Melbourne) got the three Brownlow votes. Since 2010, the Roos are 7-0 (6-1 against the line) vs Melbourne. The Roos have won their last five over the Demons by an average of 57-points. The Demons are 8-15 (10-13 against the line) at the MCG under Paul Roos. Under Brad Scott, North are 7-5 (8-4 against the line) at the MCG. The Dees are 0-9 (2-7 against the line) following a win under Paul Roos. The last eight games have totalled over 172-points.
The Jekyll and hide Demons could well beat North but the total match points line stands out to The Wolf. The Roos have really found their scoring groove averaging 110-points per game in the last month and should have little problems putting up points against the Dees. Whilst Jeffy Gartett and Jesse Hogan are hitting the scoreboard with new-found regularity. Melbourne went from utterly disgusting against St Kilda to relatively impressive against Collingwood in the space of a week so it’s fraught with danger predicting what they will bring this weekend. They could beat North, but the Roos are in form having spanked Brisbane and Carlton in the last fortnight and should see Melbourne as just another stepping stone towards a finals spot.
