Where and When: Adelaide Oval, Sunday 8 August at 6:10pm (AEST)
Last time they met: North Melbourne 13.10 (88) def Melbourne 12.11 (83) at Blundstone Arena, Hobart.
What is means for Melbourne: This a massive danger game for Melbourne. With Gawn and Viney out, they will need to dig deep to overcome North in their first meeting in South Australia. If they lose too many more matches, they will lose touch with the top 8.
What it means for North: Like Melbourne, North are in danger of losing pace with the leading pack and to be honest, if they can’t defeat an ailing Dees, should they play finals? If they chalk up another loss tonight, they should start planning their end of season trip back to the Gold Coast.
Supercoach Watch: This is all about Clayton Oliver and Petracca. They are both in form and without Gawn and Viney, there are plenty of SC points to go around. The footy may not be good to watch, but if you own both of them, this match will be very attractive!
Thommo’s Watch: I was shocked to discover a little green dot next to Rivers today. I’m hoping he can do enough to push his price up. Thommo needs $$$$
Thommo’s Tip: North by 6 points.
