Preview

Two young and exciting teams will do battle in this one. The Demons have had a tough week, with the announcement that Jesse Hogan was diagnosed with testicular cancer. They will be looking to perform well for their star forward.

North Melbourne have the bragging rights over the Demons, winning their past 15 games against them. The last time Melbourne won against the Roos was in 2006. On that day Adem Yze kicked four goals, while current West Coast coach Adam Simpson had 25 disposals.

These two have a history high-scoring games, so hopefully we see a goal-fest. It’s a tough game to predict, however, North’s record against Melbourne is too hard to look past.
