North Melbourne hosts Port Adelaide at Metricon Stadium in a game of two sides at opposite ends of the spectrum. The Roos come into the game in poor form while ladder leaders Port Adelaide head into the match in winning form.

Port's flag has only been lowered once recently, which was against Geelong who have been able to break good sides this season.

North were competitive with Brisbane three rounds back before simply playing a brand of footy that is not up to scratch against Collingwood and Gold Coast.

North Melbourne Form & Team News

North Melbourne have been performing well below par all season, sitting second last on the ladder and struggling to find any form whatsoever.

With just three wins listed to their name, any win towards the end of the season here will benefit the confidence of the Roos heading into next season with quite the young side.

Port Adelaide Form & Team News

Port are marching towards the minor premiership, putting together a stellar season thus far and now looking to avoid tripping up at one of the last hurdles before the finals.

North Melbourne vs Port Adelaide Match Up

The match-up between Robbie Tarrant and Charlie Dixon looks enticing heading into Saturday night.

Tarrant is a hard and seasoned defender who has the body and strength to match it with Dixon who is in career best form.

After looking a Coleman Medal chance for a while, sides have learned how to stop Dixon from scoring. But his effect on the match can still be immense.

If Tarrant can bring the ball to ground and not let Dixon win the one-on-ones, that is just the first hole that the Kangaroos need to plug.
