Show Preview

The North Melbourne Kangaroos will hope to continue their vastly improved form against fierce rivals the Essendon Bombers, in an unusual location. Follow the action from the Gold Coast with live scores on The Roar from 12:35pm (AEST).

This match has been moved north due to the ongoing Victorian COVID-19 outbreak. It will also start earlier than the scheduled 1:10pm first bounce, to allow preparation for a later match at Metricon Stadium between Sydney and GWS.

The Roos have shown signs of a bright future this year under David Noble, nowhere more so than in their upset win over West Coast in Perth last week. Earlier this season, the Roos would have wilted at some point in the match, but showed tremendous heart to score their finest win in many a year.

They’ll be hard-pressed to repeat the dose this week, with heart and soul midfielder Ben Cunnington remaining in Melbourne for family reasons.

The Bombers can continue to stake a claim for a finals berth with a win here, though they’d need other results to go their way to finish the round in the top eight. Last week’s thumping win over Adelaide was just what the doctor ordered after three losses in four weeks.

Captain Dyson Heppell returns from injury, but improved midfielder Kyle Langford misses with a hamstring strain, while promising forward Harrison Jones’ season is in doubt with a foot injury.
