Game Notes: The Kangaroos escaped comparisons with their 1972 selves – who lost their first 16 matches – when they finally broke their winning duck against Gold Coast in round six on Saturday night. But winning consecutive matches for the first time since rounds 18 and 19 last year will be difficult, with the rampaging Crows to come at Hobart’s Blundstone Arena. Memories are still strong of Adelaide’s 62-point defeat of North in last year’s elimination final, ending a campaign that started with nine straight wins. They have gone in different directions since, with the Crows now an offensive juggernaut looking down on the competition. They are strong from back to front and boast devastating run, with Roos coach Brad Scott acknowledging the “formidable challenge” after the success over the Suns. Ben Cunnington is one North player looking to rebound after a 12-touch outing a week ago.
Thommo’s Tip: North by 100 points.
