THE TEAM NEWS

NORTH MELBOURNE

  • North Melbourne backed up their opening round win over St. Kilda with another success on their return to action as they shocked last season’s beaten Grand Finalists GWS Giants last week.
  • The Kangaroos earned their fourth successive win stretching back to last season thanks to a brilliant second half performance that saw them win by a 20-point margin after the scores had been tied at the half.
  • After such a solid showing, it is little surprise that North Melbourne have opted to make minimal changes to their side with Paul Ahern called-up at the expense of Bailey Scott.

SYDNEY SWANS

  • Sydney Swans could not make it two wins from two at the start of the 2020 campaign as they suffered a narrow loss to Essendon in last week’s contest despite leading at the break.
  • The Swans got off to a great start and opened up a big lead in the first quarter but the failed to maintain their strong opening to the game as they were defeated by just six points.
  • Despite the disappointment of that narrow reverse, the Swans have made just one enforced change for this matchup with Kaiden Brand dropping out through injury and his place is taken by Robbie Fox.

THE PREDICTION

North Melbourne have started 2020 in good fashion and have won both of their matches either side of the enforced break in play. They will aim to go 3-0 as they host Sydney Swans who were narrowly defeated last week after throwing away a big opening quarter lead. The Swans have won five of the last six contests between the two teams but the Kangaroos look to be in a good place this campaign and they can improve on their poor recent record against the Sydney outfit by coming out on top here.
