Game notes: After winning its first round one match under Brad Scott’s coaching, North Melbourne will be confident of making it two from two against the Lions on Saturday. The Kangaroos haven’t always had it their own way at the Gabba under Scott’s leadership – losing three of its four matches there – but are favoured to reverse that trend here after a barnstorming finish to take care of Adelaide first up. The Lions lost to West Coast by 10 goals in their season-opener, but showed plenty of flair in topping 100 points, and with livewire Dayne ‘The Zork’ Zorko back from suspension, should give the Kangaroos headaches with their speed. But if North are serious about taking the step to premiership contention, these are the games they have to win.
Mottsy’s Tip: North by 60
