It’s been over 10 years since Melbourne beat their rivals from the North. Since Round 20 2006, the Kangaroos have won 16 in a row against the Demons.
If this game was at the MCG, most people would almost give Melbourne their certainty pick given the form lines of the two teams. However, playing at Blundstone throws a spanner in the works. The Roos are excellent at this ground, they have won six of their past eight games at the venue, the highlight was destroying Adelaide earlier this year.
You cannot tip North Melbourne with any confidence, however, don not be surprised if the Roos pull something out of the bag in this one.
