North Melbourne Kangaroos vs Sydney Swans Preview
The Swans have a chance to prove a point this week against current wooden spoon favourites North Melbourne.
John Longmire’s side was deadly in last week’s clash against GWS, storming home to a dominant 73-point victory thanks to a big day from Isaac Heeney and Buddy Franklin.
The importance of a win this week can’t be overstated with a top four spot all but a certainty, but this is also somewhat of a revenge game for the Swans after holding on to win by only 11 points against North back in April.
Of course, a lot has happened since then, particularly on Arden Street with the Roos firing David Noble and managing just one win since.
Struggling to hit the scoreboard, the Roos have reverted back to their old ways over the last fortnight in blowout losses to Hawthorn and Essendon, and they certainly won’t find this any easier against a Swans outfit that has allowed the fourth-fewest goals in the competition.
Playing at Marvel has been a real issue for Sydney in recent times though, as we’ve seen this year with losses to the Dogs and Carlton.
That isn’t to say we’re in for a massive North Melbourne upset, but after cutting it close last time they met, the line is very appealing.
