Hawthorn Hawks vs North Melbourne Kangaroos Preview

Despite a 0-8 record, North Melbourne has started games reasonably well this season with their fadeouts generally occurring in the second and fourth quarters. They have a 3-5 first quarter record and they come up against the worst first half team in the AFL this season in Hawthorn.

Both North Melbourne and Hawthorn have only led once at half time this season, with the first half points differential across eight games at -22.8 for the Kangaroos and -23.1 for the Hawks. Incredibly, the only time both teams have led at half time was against the undefeated Demons.

The Kangaroos have covered the line in three of their last four games against the Hawks and if Jaeger O’Meara doesn’t return to the Hawks midfield, The Wolf considers North Melbourne a genuine chance to record their first win of the season, despite their own injury woes.

But due to the unpredictability of both teams, The Wolf’s not keen to take the result in this. Instead, he’s backing the Roos to remain competitive in the first half in Launceston.
