It’s Harvey’s 400th game and North Melbourne defeated Brisbane by 82 points in round 2 so tipping this game is simple. Kangaroos by lots, right?
Maybe, but consider these three points: The Kangaroos have only won back-to-back games twice this season and to date haven’t won three straight. They have not defeated Brisbane at the Gabba in six games. They lost to Gold Coast three weeks ago in Queensland. In other words, the Kangaroos are the only Victorians who don’t like heading to Queensland in winter!
Brisbane are struggling and Beams is at risk of missing this game but before their poor loss to Melbourne last week, the Lions did push Sydney for three quarters, so if bad North Melbourne turn up this game could quickly become an upset.
Milestones: Brent Harvey joins the 400 club while Sam Wright and Shaun Atley reach 100 games together.
For Brisbane Jed Adcock plays his 200th.
Thommo’s tip: North by 45 points
Late edit: Beams and Hanley out!
