An intriguing clash awaits, as the North Melbourne Kangaroos host the Adelaide Crows at Metricon Stadium. Join The Roar for live scores from 2:35pm (AEST).
This is a clash with big ramifications, albeit not at the top of the ladder. Instead, today’s clash has the potential to hold consequences for the race to avoid the wooden spoon.
The Crows, who remain winless, are currently last on the ladder. They’ve come close twice in succession, with their latest result a loss by under a goal against the Bombers last weekend. They’ve been performing better since returning to South Australia, but unfortunately for Matthew Nicks’ side, they’re back in Queensland today.
North Melbourne are heading into today’s clash while enduring a long losing streak. They haven’t tasted victory since a Round 2 win over the Giants. Last weekend’s clash against Carlton, while a loss, was an improved, more lively performance than many of their games this year. The Roos head into today’s clash as warm favourites, but amidst much conjecture about a potential Adelaide upset.
North have more experience at this venue, but the sides have an equal 11 wins at Carrara. Neither has won at the ground this year, with the Crows losing the two times they played here during their stay in the Queensland hub.
