    Sunday, August 7
    North Melbourne Kangaroos v Sydney Swans at Marvel Stadium, 1.10pm AEST

    The Roos' free-flowing brand of footy was on show against Essendon in Round 20, but despite dominating the clearances, failed to capitalise on their opportunities inside 50 as the Bombers won by 48 points.

    Jy Simpkin had a career-high 41 disposals, six clearances and five tackles, while Cam Zurhaar's rich vein of form continued with four goals.

    The Swans enter on the back of four straight wins, including a 73-point victory last weekend in the Sydney Derby.

    Luke Parker won his third consecutive Brett Kirk Medal after 34 disposals, six clearances and six tackles, while Sam Reid, Lance Franklin and Isaac Heeney kicked three goals apiece.

    AFL R21 preview: Roos to sit Swans exam in Taylor's 50th

    North Melbourne will on Sunday strive to bounce back from consecutive defeats as it takes on the Sydney Swans at Marvel Stadium

    North Melbourne will on Sunday strive to bounce back from consecutive defeats as it takes on the Sydney Swans at Marvel Stadium.

    The Roos put in a competitive performance against Essendon on Sunday, and recorded 20 more clearances over the match, but couldn't turn territory into scores.

    John Longmire's men have won their last four on the bounce, and sit in the top four with a percentage of 126.5.

    When last the teams met, North Melbourne led throughout the match but was pipped at the post.

    Could the Kangaroos sustain a similar effort for just a few more minutes this Sunday afternoon?  

    There's plenty to play for as the Roos celebrate the 25-year (+1) anniversary of the 1996 premiership.

    'We know we're going to have to be at our best': Adams on Swans

    Interim senior coach Leigh Adams speaks with the media ahead of our Round 21 clash with the Sydney Swans.

    Published ago

    Roos regain a handful

    Six North Melbourne players tested positive for COVID-19 in the days following the defeat to Hawthorn in Round 19.

    Ben Cunnington's progress towards a playing return was halted, while Aidan Corr, Paul Curtis, Aaron Hall, Jack Mahony and Lachie Young were all ruled out of the AFL team.

    Though the engine room escaped infection, the impact of an out on every line rippled throughout the Roos' game.

    Curtis' return to the forward line will go some way to solving the chemistry issues posed by interim senior coach Leigh Adams following the defeat to the Dons.

    Hall's voice, run and piercing kicking will be welcome, while Corr's game will complement Ben McKay and Kallan Dawson on the last line.

    Sydney's strong form

    Since the Swans' narrow defeat to Essendon in Round 16 they've peeled off four consecutive wins, among them the runners-up and Justin Longmuir's resurgent Fremantle.

    The forward line is multidimensional, with Tom Papley and Errol Gulden running the flanks, and Isaac Heeney and Will Hayward presenting match-up challenges closer to goal.

    At the other end, McCartin brothers Paddy and Tom have reunited with success, and released Dane Rampe to play a more adventurous role.

    The Swans have elevated their contest, underpinned by the evergreen Luke Parker, Callum Mills' growth and James Rowbottom's doggedness.

    The trust they have forged over the home-and-away season is visible, and they will be formidable opponents on Sunday afternoon.

    Curtis Taylor's first milestone

     No North Melbourne player has encapsulated the worth of an educational approach to a rebuild better than Curtis Taylor.

    A hit-up forward over his first two seasons at Arden Street, the 22-year-old has since matured into a long-term wing solution for the Roos.

    Taylor's work ethic is reflected in his season averages of more than two inside 50s, two rebound 50s and four marks.

    In the narrow loss to Collingwood at the MCG in Round 17, he was energised by the Roos' more flowing footy, and collected a season-high 23 disposals and 10 marks.

    As this team builds chemistry and the players spend more time with each other on the field, expect the bones of Taylor's game to deliver even greater dividends.

    Last time they met…

    On that sunny April day at the SCG, the Roos jumped out to a healthy lead in the third term before they were reeled in with minutes to go.

    Skipper Jack Ziebell swung forward to boot an equal career-best five goals, while Jy Simpkin sliced through the middle of the ground with 33 disposals, 543 metres gained and a goal.

    When Kayne Turner found the big sticks early in the final term it appeared a second win was on the cards, but the Swans responded with the last four goals.

    Justin McInerney drove his team forward again and again with 14 final-quarter touches, and Isaac Heeney showcased his poacher's instinct with two late goals.

    Little moments proved critical, and with the experience they've since accumulated, the young Roos may not have let the match slip.

    The Swans have also grown, Sunday is an opportunity for Adams' side to measure what they've learned from a long winter.

    AFL R21 match report: Swans extend streak with win over Roos

    The Sydney Swans have extended their winning streak to five after a 38-point victory over the North Melbourne Kangaroos at Marvel Stadium on Sunday afternoon

    Sydney has boosted its hopes of earning a double chance, defeating North Melbourne by 38 points at Marvel Stadium on Sunday despite a seven-goal haul from Nick Larkey.

    Just like they did in the corresponding round four clash at the SCG, the Kangaroos took it right up to the Swans, at least for two-and-a-half quarters, but Sydney's class and skill proved far superior to their rivals and they prevailed 18.18 (126) to 13.10 (88).

    The Swans' 14th victory – and fifth on the bounce – keeps them in the hunt for a top-four spot and possibly a top-two-finish, which would see them host a final.

    AFL R21 match highlights: North Melbourne v Sydney

    The Kangaroos and Swans clash in Round 21

    Published ago

    The first quarter won't be remembered as a classic, with both sides turning the ball over more frequently than they would have liked. That said, credit must go to North Melbourne, whose pressure was terrific.

    The Swans took a 17-point lead into quarter-time after Lance Franklin's late goal, but that margin should have been greater, with the visitors wasteful in front of goal.

    North Melbourne drew first blood in the second quarter, with Callum Coleman-Jones kicking truly from 30 metres out after taking a strong grab, and it was within five points when Larkey kicked his third.

    Sydney's first goal of the second term came at the 21-minute mark and after 11 inside 50s, when Tom Papley swooped on a loose ball in the goalsquare. It didn't take long for the Roos to respond, however, with Larkey marking and kicking his fourth.

    North's hard work was undone in the blink of an eye, as quick goals to Isaac Heeney and Sam Reid extended the Swans' lead to 20 points. Alarm bells were well and truly ringing for the Kangas when Reid dragged in a one-hander and added his second in two minutes. That goal was Sydney's third from four inside 50s, which was a stark contrast to its previous 17 entries, which netted just one major.

    KANGAROOS v SWANS Full match coverage and stats

    Sydney's four-goal quarter saw it head to the main break 27 points to the good, but, just like the first term, inaccuracy in front of goal meant its advantage wasn't as sizeable as it should have been.

    Larkey continued to be a handful for Tom McCartin and he added his fifth within the opening minute of the third term, before Cam Zurhaar registered his first to cut the deficit to 15 points.

    Chad Warner was the beneficiary of some excellent forward-half pressure and his goal against the run of play gave the Swans some breathing space, but the Roos kept coming and Aaron Hall's long-range goal on the run kept them within touch.

    Sydney's big guns up forward responded, with Franklin, Papley and Heeney all adding to their tally. The Swans continued to flex their muscle, as Logan McDonald registered his first goal, before Warner slotted his second to make it five unanswered goals.

    The Swans swung for home with a comfortable 46-point cushion and extended that to a game-high 59 points at the 16-minute mark, before the Kangaroos kicked the final three goals of the match to reduce the margin to a respectable 38 points.

    Larkey returns to form
    After failing to hit the scoreboard in rounds 18 and 20 – the first time he has gone consecutive matches without a goal since rounds 13 and 14, 2020 – Nick Larkey was at his brilliant best on Sunday, booting seven goals. The Roos' key forward booted two in the first quarter, two in the second, one in the third and two in the last to finish with seven, equalling his career-high from round 19, 2021 against Carlton.
