The North Melbourne Kangaroos will be looking to bounce back into form, but they’ve got a tough assignment in the ladder-leading Port Adelaide Power at Metricon Stadium. Join The Roar for live scores from 7:40pm (AEST).
It’s been a year to forget for the Kangaroos in 2020 and they hit a new low last week. They failed to kick a goal in the second half and got annihilated by Gold Coast to the tune of 63 points – a margin that could’ve been bigger if not for inaccuracy by the Suns in front of goal.
It doesn’t get any easier this week, with the first-placed Power rolling into town. Port did all the hard work in the first half against Sydney last week, before cruising to a 26-point win. It hasn’t been the most impressive fortnight, but they’ll back themselves to put up a big win tonight.
North’s best win of 2019 came against the Power, a stunning 86-point demolition in the penultimate home-and-away round. Prior to that, however, they’d dropped five straight against Port. The Kangas are 1-4 at Metricon this season, while the Power are 4-1.
