Seventeen straight losses. That is the reality that will playing out in the backs of the Melbourne players’ minds as they go to face North Melbourne at the MCG on Saturday. The Roos’ run of 17 straight victories against Melbourne, dating back to 2006, is the second longest losing streak in club history. And, as much as the coaching staff and players will try to downplay the losing streak, it will be a factor in the game. However, the Demons are undoubtedly a team on the rise and up against a youthful North Melbourne squad they will fancy their chances. The Roos, however, are coming off an impressive 52-point win over St Kilda and will be no easy beats, particularly if they can match it in the midfield with the Demons’ onballers.
Thommo’s Tip: Melbourne by 10 points
