Domain Stadium


North Melbourne suffered another heartbreaking loss last week. But, in their first four games of the season, they have shown some serious promise. This weekend they make the trip to Perth to play Fremantle.

The Dockers have somewhat recovered from their poor start to the year, and will look to make it three straight wins when they play the Roos. A win would also put them above .500.

North Melbourne aren’t known as good travellers and that could play against them this week. However, last time the two teams met, the shinboners claimed an impressive 31-point win. Jack Ziebell¬†dominated, collecting 26 disposals, to go along with seven marks and three goals.

Keep an eye on Nat Fyfe in this one, as the Roos have a tendency to let opposition star midfielders run wild.

These two teams are tough to split. It’s hard to go past Fremantle at home, but North Melbourne are playing too well to go 0-5.
