AFL Live North Melbourne Kangaroos vs Richmond Tigers Streaming Free 2018 Regular Seasons week 08 match will be kick off at The Etihad Stadium, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, Sunday 13 April 2018 online, 13:10 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
One of the big games of AFL Round 8 will be when North Melbourne take on the Richmond Tigers at Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
The 1.10PM encounter pits the top side, Richmond, up against the improving Kangaroos and the action can be seen on Fox Footy.
Can North Melbourne do the unthinkable and knock over Richmond? The Kangaroos have been the surprise packets this season, performing above expectations and have won four of their seven games, including a Round 7 thriller against Sydney at the SCG by two points.
However, Richmond look a class above their rivals at the moment and sit on top position of the ladder, winning six of seven, including their past five. The Tigers were far too good for Fremantle at the MCG last weekend, winning that clash by 77 points.
A highlight of the premiers performances this season has been their pressure, which was a feature of their success in 2017. They have limited the scoring ability of their opposition again in 2017 and are conceding just 68 points per game, the fewest of any side in the competition.
The Tigers also rank on top for points per game. Jack Riewoldt, Jason Castagna, Dustin Martin and Josh Caddy all feature in the top 20 for individual goals scored and that quartet are just a number of players that the Roos will need to be mindful of curtailing.
North Melbourne may enjoy an advantage at winning the hitouts, as well as the contested possessions and clearances. But to score an upset they will need massive games from Ben Brown and Mason Wood, just to name a few. Brown is the competition’s leading goal kicker, while Wood was a revelation last weekend, booting four agains the Swans.
