Good Friday football finally graces us as North Melbourne host the reigning premiers.

The Bulldogs were shock losers last week against Fremantle and will be out to right their wrongs this week against a North Melbourne side who were competitive yet comprehensively beaten by GWS last week.

Luke Beveridge’s side will be looking to ensure they don’t get jumped in the opening quarter as they did last week and will come out firing while Brad Scott will be hoping his men can deliver a four-quarter performance for the first time this season.

They’ll be up for the fight given how hard they pushed to stage this game on Good Friday but we can’t see the Dogs slipping up two times in as many weeks.

Bulldogs by 27.
