Essendon vs North Melbourne:
North Melbourne will be looking to snap a three-game losing streak when it happens on Essendon that Saturday.
North is coming off its worst loss of the season, after moving down to the song of 49-points last time out from the Dogs.
On the flip-side, Essendon will probably be full of confidence after defeating Collingwood past Friday night.
Both teams jumped to the Gold Coast early in the week, adding intrigue to an already exciting match-up.
It was the Bombers who dwelt with a late Anthony McDonald-Tipungwuti goal breaking North hearts.Ben Brown’s sixth objective of the night edged the Roos into the direct, before McDonald-Tipingwuti stole the show at the death.
Brown was in brilliant form for the Roos, taking 12 marks and 18 disposals to go with his 6 personalities.After a fine start to the season, Tarrant was defeated by his rival
The North vice-captain will probably be looking to reply against the Bombers, and will likely match-up on Shaun McKernan.
In the lack of Jake Stringer, Joe Daniher, and James Stewart, McKernan is your Bombers sole senior key-forward accessible, meaning that the likes of Cale Hooker and Aaron Francis could swing forward.
McKernan has booted 5 goals out of 3 games this year.
Essendon reacted to their first defeat of the effort by making an immediate return to winning ways with an impressive victory over Collingwood last week as they improved to 3-1 for the season.
The Bombers did a fantastic job at maintaining the Magpies quiet and they allowed just 23 points in the opening three quarters with Essendon building a 27-point lead at the point.
The Magpies fought back in the last quarter but it was not enough as the Bombers held firm but they will be without the injured Jake Stringer here while Mason Redman is lost thus Conor McKenna makes a welcome return combined with Zach Merrett.
North Melbourne’s problems continued as they dropped for a third game In a row with Western Bulldogs proving too great for them last week and They now face another difficult competition as they face Essendon.
The Kangaroos were second best throughout the entire contest and lost all Four quarters as they managed just 38 points at the heavy defeat with
They’ve reacted by dropping Marley Williams and Tristan Xerri for this particular competition with Ben Cunnington Also making way because of injury and that sees Bailey Scott, Paul Ahern And Tom Campbell return to the side.
Essendon have started the season well and encounter this battle with North Melbourne with a 3-1 record. Their only loss so far has been a One-point conquer Carlton which highlights how nicely the Bombers Are travelling, especially after they place that reverse behind Them by beating Collingwood past week. The Kangaroos were bad again Last week and appear short on confidence that won’t help here since the Bombers will make it five wins in a row against North Melbourne.
