Amazingly the Blues have won the last two games against the Kangaroos! North Melbourne do have a habit of losing the simple games at times, but after finally returning to the top 8 the players shouldn’t lack for motivation to bring their A game tonight.
While North has a reason to be motivated, Carlton has 138. Losing by 138 points stings the pride and Barker will have spent the week reminding his players of the intensity and effort required to play sport at the elite level. If they don’t show some spirit this week, they may hammer home a few more nails in another coach’s coffin.
It will be interesting to see what sort of reception Jarrad Waite receives in his first game against his old flame, his 200th overall.
Thommo’s tip: North by 30 points.
