According to SEN’s Time On host Sam McClure, the race to play North Melbourne in next year’s Good Friday clash is between two clubs.

Essendon and Richmond are the proposed two teams left vying for a spot to meet North in the 2019 season Good Friday match, with the Bombers looking the more likely of the two to be confirmed for the match.

McClure said on SEN’s Time On  the Good Friday match-up will be one to put in the calendar.

“Good Friday footy is going to change,” McClure told SEN’s Time On.

“As we sit here now we don’t know North Melbourne’s opponent, it’s down to two – Essendon or Richmond.

“It’s much more likely that it is going to be Essendon because of the way the break days will fall given that Anzac Day would be the next Thursday.

“But Good Friday, as it stands, is going to involve one of those two big Victorian heavyweights.”

In last season’s match, the Kangaroos smashed St Kilda by 52 points at Etihad Stadium in front of 33,966 fans.
