In past years this is exactly the type of game that the Dockers would find a way to lose. I think those days are over as the new Ross Lyon-coached Dockers are made of sterner stuff.
There are reasons to respect North Melbourne. They nearly beat West Coast here earlier this year and have had two weeks to prepare for this game. They have also been competitive in so many games this year without coming away with the points, so the ability is there. The resolve will also be there early in this game and expect them to come out firing, but once Fremantle gets on top I can see the Kangaroos bowing their heads and getting a spanking.
