AFL Live North Melbourne Kangaroos vs Richmond Tigers Stream AFL Football 2016 Online, AFL Round 11 Match will be kick off at Bellerive Oval stadium, Bellerive, Tasmania, Australia, Friday 03 June 2016 online, 19.50 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
North Melbourne Kangaroos need to bounce back from their first loss, while Richmond Tigers are looking to continue their winning resurgence.
North are coming off a reasonably unflattering month of football for a side sitting on top of the ladder. They weren’t disgraced in their first loss, to Sydney last week, and prior to that gave Carlton a nice touch up, but they were unimpressive in wins over Essendon and St Kilda.
Richmond now have three wins on the trot, sparked by Sam Lloyd’s goal after the siren against Sydney. Subsequent victories against Fremantle and Essendon were solid only, and tempered by the knowledge that those sides occupy the bottom two rungs on the ladder.
Disregarding the Round 23 match last year when North rested their first choice side, the Roos have won their last six matches against Richmond. Brad Scott holds a 7-2 record over Damien Hardwick. The sides have met once at this venue, in Rd 6 last year, when North won by 35 points.
Since the start of 2012, North are eight wins from 10 matches at Blundstone Arena, at +12% POT, and 70% ATS. 40% of these matches have gone under.
Since 2013, Richmond is the best travelling side in the AFL, one of only two sides with a positive POT, ranked #1 at +55%. They are also ranked #1 ATS interstate, at 67%, one of only four sides higher than 50%.
North has the good old fashioned wood on Richmond, the better overall form, and more experience at the ground, which gives them the inside running in this match, even though on paper the Tigers have an edge through the middle, and a variety of defenders to play on the North tall forwards. Alex Rance on Jarrad Waite will be a key match-up.
If the Tigers can generate enough scoring opportunities from their inside fifty’s, and take their chances in front of goal, they’re more than capable of springing a surprise, but they’ll have to overcome a mental hoodoo against the Roos to do so.
