North Melbourne take on Sydney Swans at Marvel Stadium on Saturday in a game that should favour the in-form Kangaroos playing back at home.

North impressed last week against GWS, beating them by over three goals while Sydney's last quarter comeback against Essendon fell agonisingly short, going down by a straight kick.

We are expecting the Kangaroos to have their tails up and ready to claim three-straight wins.

North Melbourne Form & Team News

After what was a great win last week against one of the flag favourites, North have put their hand up to say that they are ready to play finals footy this season.

Sydney are in a bit of a re-development stage, so this is the perfect opportunity for them to get a head start and go 3-0 for the season.

Sydney Swans Form & Team News

After a tough loss last week, Sydney will be looking to bounce back with a win against a side who look a real contender this season.

The Swans' form has dropped away over the last two or three seasons, but they do pop up and play well against North Melbourne, beating them in their last two encounters.

A young side with some raw talent might just be outclassed by a more seasoned Kangaroos side though.
