Australian Football League Live North Melbourne Kangaroos vs Melbourne Demons Stream AFL 2016 Seasons Week 03 math will be kick off at Blundstone Arena Stadium, Tasmania, Australia, Sunday 10 April 2016 online, 01.10 pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
North Melbourne are every chance to go into this with an unchanged line-up, with no forced replacements.
Colin Garland and Angus Brayshaw have paid for the Essendon loss at selection. Lynden Dunn will come in, and may be joined by Sam Frost, given the Dee’s will need height to counter North’s tall forwards.
North Melbourne was able to walk away with a win in Round 1 despite being outplayed for much of the night against Adelaide. They were a class above Brisbane up at the Gabba, and able to hold the Lions at arm’s length without exerting themselves unduly.
Melbourne fought out a gritty win over the Giants in Round 1, and were expected to go 2-0 for the first time in over a decade but once more couldn’t handle the pressure of favouritism. In fact, they’ve only played two quarters of good football so far this season.
North Melbourne have beaten Melbourne 14 times in a row, in a run that stretches all the way back to 2006, and there haven’t been many close game among them either. Looking at their last six clashes, the Roos have won these games by an average margin of 54 points.
North have also won their last six matches in Hobart, while Melbourne hasn’t played there in over 60 years.
