Game Chat – North Melbourne v Essendon

Written by Thommo on July 17 2015

Both teams hit the pressure release valve with wins last week, the Kangaroos powering past a well-rested Geelong and Essendon outlasting the inaccurate Demons.

The Kangaroos need to continue winning to keep their finals dreams alive, a job made difficult by the loss of Petrie to suspension, but they will be confident considering their recent form against the Bombers.

As the Baby Bombers Mark 2 can’t make finals they will be judged based on their desire and effort. Can they sneak another unexpected win?

Thommo’s tip: North by 28 points.

  7. One of the best performances I’ve seen from a ruckmen. Brilliant from Goldy. Give him the 3, 2 & 1 on Brownlow night.
