Australian Football League Live North Melbourne Kangaroos vs West Coast Eagles Stream AFL 2015 Seasons Week 10 math will be kick off at Blundstone Arena, Hobart, Tasmania, Australia Sunday 07 June 2015 online, 15.20pm (AEDT) and its broadcast on Channel Seven, Foxtell.
The Roos look to bounce back from a horrific loss to Collingwood without their coach Brad Scott (back injury) whilst the Eagles continued their good form with a handsome win over Geelong.
North have added Andrew Swallow, Ben Jacobs, Mason Wood, Majak Daw and Scott McMahon to their extended squad. Dropping both Kayne Turner and Luke McDonald. Midfielders Nick Dal Santo and Daniel Wells are still missing from their best 22. The Eagles have selected Elliot Yeo, Mark Hutchings and Dom Sheed with no early omissions. Jack Darling, Mitch Brown, Eric Mackenzie and Matt Rosa remain absent from their best team.
The unassuming Eagles are second on the ladder with a 7-2 record gone 1-1 against teams in the top eight this year. They rank 1st in points scored averaging 111 points per game whilst conceding a measly 69-ppg to rank 3rd in that category. The Roos, a preliminary finalist last year, are sitting in 13th on the ladder with a 4-5 record. Ranking 14th for most points conceded and 8th for most points scored. They’re 1-4 against teams in the top eight having experienced heavy losses to some of those teams – Adelaide by 77, Hawthorn by 60, Freo by 73 and Collingwood by 17 after leading 39-points at half-time.
Since 2010, West Coast is 5-3 (3-5 against the line) vs North Melbourne. The Eagles have won five of their last six matches against the Roos though North beat them in their only match last season. Six of the last eight North-Eagles games have totalled over 177 points with four of them going over 200. The Kangaroos are 5-2 head to head (4-3 ATL) in Hobart. The Eagles won their only game (0-1 ATL) at Blundstone against North. They’re7-7 (8-6 against the line) when playing away from Perth in 2014-15. The Eagles are the only team in the competition to have covered the line in seven games this season. West Coast has not won seven in a row since round 24, 2011. North Melbourne is 9-2 both head to head and against the line following a loss in 2014-15.
One of the toughest games in the round to pick. Are West Coast going so well due to their relatively easy start to the year or are they legit? Whilst what to make of North Melbourne after sitting pretty at half-time before capitulating against the Magpies? They usually respond well after a loss and haven’t lost three in a row since round 3, 2013. They are fast losing our trust but have just enough runs on the board to take them as the odds here.
