Hawthorn vs North Melbourne Preview and Prediction

Hawthorn after their constructive win against the Tigers last week, face a North Melbourne side that will be eager to get back in the winner’s circle after their loss to the Sydney Swans.

The Hawks burst out the gates kicking five goals in the first quarter in their win over Richmond.

Hawthorn will have to limit Todd Goldstein’s authority in the ruck contest if they are to influence North Melbourne’s scoring ability throughout the match.

Jaeger O’Meara impressed to his return to the side finishing with 23 disposals, eight intercepts and a goal.

Meanwhile, North Melbourne lost disappointingly against the Swans. They were severely inaccurate throughout the match only kicking a goal from 40% of its scoring shots.

Jy Simpkin was one of the best for the Kangaroos finishing the match with 26 disposals, eight clearances and a goal.

Hawthorn has started the season strongly and I think they’ll continue that on the weekend against North Melbourne with a convincing display.
