North Melbourne vs Western Bulldogs Preview


Although North Melbourne fell to a defeat against the Swans in their last outing, it was a significant improvement and crucial bounce back from their 108-point loss against the Lions the week prior.

The Kangaroos lead for the vast majority of the last term before Isaac Heeney booted two of the last three goals to prevent David Noble’s side from causing an upset. Nevertheless, it is positive signs heading into Friday evening’s match.

Similarly, the Western Bulldogs also suffered their third defeat of the season against Richmond last time out. It was also their largest losing margin so far this season (38 points).

For the second week on the trot, inaccuracy plagued Luke Beveridge’s outfit. However, this time it cost their side the four points. Against Sydney, they kicked 9.17 (11 point win) and against the Tigers, they kicked 7.19 (38 point loss).

Although the Western Bulldogs have underperformed so far at this stage of the 2022 campaign, I still fully expect them to bounce back with a comfortable win in the third Good Friday meeting between the two sides.
