The Magpies and the Kangaroos meet in what will be the historic first AFLW match played at Marvel Stadium.
Collingwood had the chance win their first game of their AFLW season but blew it against Carlton last weekend.
Sarah Rowe kicked a goal after the three quarter time siren to put the Pies 10 points up but some magic from Carlton’s Darcy Vescio got the Blues over the line resulting in a six-point Magpie loss.
Top draft picks Katie Lynch and Jordy Allen impressed for the Pes kicking two goals between them.
Ash Brazil was also able to get back to dominating in defence after returning from a concussion the previous week.
With 0 wins and 5 losses, The Pies are now the only team where it is mathematically impossible to qualify for a Preliminary Final under the controversial conference system.
North Melbourne suffered their very first AFLW loss going down to Adelaide by 35 points in Werribee last week.
The Roos kicked the first two goals of the game but allowed the Crows to kick 10 of the last 12 goals of the match in the highly anticipated top of the table clash.
It was yet again another outstanding performance from Emma Kearney with her matchup against Erin Phillips and Jess Duffin’s 23 disposals/11 marks in defence was a standout in North’s very first AFLW defeat.
Despite going down to the Crows, North will prove simply too good for the struggling Collingwood and should win comfortably.
Tip: North Melbourne at $1.11
