North Melbourne vs Port Adelaide Preview


North Melbourne was humiliated by the in-form Dockers last weekend, only managing to kick a mere 24 points in a 78-point defeat that marked their sixth loss on the trot. The average losing margin on that run has been a whopping 62 points.

The Kangaroos have also been clouded with unnecessary off-field drama involving number one pick Jason Horne-Francis, who has held off contract negotiations until the end of the season.

Although the most concerning news that could rattle or motivate the playing group is that coach David Noble perhaps went too personal in his approach to spraying his side in their embarrassing Round 3 loss against the Lions.

Meanwhile, Port Adelaide won their third consecutive match as they look to get their season back on track, with wins coming against West Coast, St Kilda and the Western Bulldogs. They sit just one game away from the top eight despite losing their first five games of the season.

Ken Hinkley and his side have a strong record against the Kangaroos on the road in recent history, winning four of the previous five away meetings. It is also normally a high-scoring affair between the two sides and depending on the weather, it could be that again.

It’s obvious that North Melbourne enter the match as heavy underdogs and for good reason. So, you can expect a comfortable Port Adelaide victory in the Apple Isle on Saturday afternoon.
