R22, 2014, North Melbourne 14.17 (101) d Adelaide 13.16 (94) at Blundstone Arena

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.

While we do our best to update posts with end of quarter scores, we aren’t always online so if you have access to the scores and see they haven’t gone into the Comments section of this post, the Community would love it if you could help us out.

    1. Could be wishful thinking on my behalf. Crows can’t hit a target and aren’t working hard enough

    1. Sloan’s 43 is very high considering he has only had 5 disposals, including 1 clanger, plus 4 tackles.
