North Melbourne Kangaroos vs St Kilda Saints Preview
Two coaches stepping into their first full season square off on Sunday in a game that should tell us plenty.
Brett Ratten knows how to bring out the best in a young team, which has led to many pundits tipping the Saints to finish inside top eight this season.
It’s also a new era at Arden Street as Rhyce Shaw looks to prove the doubters wrong. We got a good taste of North Melbourne’s new front man for half a season last year, and there is still enough talent for the Kangaroos to challenge for a finals spot.
As far as this game goes though, you’d be mad not to take a play in the head-to-head market. The Roos have won three straight over St Kilda dating back to 2017, but really, this game is nothing more than a coin flip.
I’m happy to side with St Kilda here though purely based on North’s horrible back line. The addition of Paddy Ryder to the ruck should go a long way, and the Saints typically beat up on weaker teams like the Gold Coast, Demons, Blues and Dockers last year. The $1.80 presents enormous value.
