North Melbourne will look to build on their impressive momentum as they host Melbourne. We’ll have live scores from 2.10pm AEST.

The Roos have found form and shrugged off critics lately, winning five of their last six with the sole loss being a two-point road loss to West Coast.

This form has seen them return to the top eight, just ahead of Fremantle on percentage.

Meanwhile, Melbourne are feeling the weight of injuries to key players. Mitch Clark is just one of the five players out for the season, while Mark Jamar’s calf injury is another blow.

The Dees sit on 16th with just two wins for the season.

North Melbourne last week got up in a narrow four-point win over Richmond.

Drew Petrie was the hero with five last quarter goals and seven for the match. Andrew Swallow and Ryan Bastinac both had 29 touches, while Liam Anthony’s 26 touches, nine marks and two goals was a great all-round performance.

Melbourne last week hosted Port Adelaide in Darwin and went down by 28 points.

Jack Grimes led the way with 32 touches, 11 marks and four tackles. Jeremy Howe made another submission for mark of the year.


The Dees’ last win was Round 13 against the GWS Giants.

North have made no change for this clash, while the Demons are bringing in Brent Moloney, Jordie McKenzie and James Sellar.
