The North Melbourne Kangaroos will hope to get their second win of the year when they host the Carlton Blues at Blundstone Arena on Saturday night. Join The Roar for live scores from the match, starting from 7:35pm AEST.

Neither of these sides has had a particularly mind-blowing start to the 2018 AFL season, but neither was particularly expected to, with both thought of as likely bottom-four sides in the preseason.

North Melbourne to their credit have brought a respectable effort to every game they’ve played but against both the Gold Coast Suns and the Melbourne Demons just didn’t have the quality to outdo their opponents.

However they did open their account in Round 2 when they played the St Kilda Saints on Good Friday. It might not have been the most watchable game of football ever played, but showed what a difference there can be between sides who bring the right intensity and those who don’t.

Carlton on the other hand find themselves 0-3 and winless at this early stage of the season, and they’ll be hoping that a fixture against a fellow low-ranked team can bring that streak to an end.

They looked really promising in Round 1 when they went up against Richmond despite falling short of a win, but have played Gold Coast and Collingwood in the weeks since and would’ve been really disappointed with both performances.

Brendon Bolton has challenged his young charges to break out of their defensive style and start attacking more in 2018, but so far the rewards from that strategy just haven’t come.

Prediction
North are a little more mature and more reliable in terms of the quality of their form, likely making them the safer bet, but the game is definitely up for grabs.

North Melbourne Kangaroos by 12 points.
