How to watch Brisbane vs North Melbourne AFL live and match preview

Posted: 2 April 2022 4:00 pm

Brisbane will be eager to keep their top 4 quest on track when they host North Melbourne this week.

SUMMARY: Brisbane vs North Melbourne is only on Channel 7 in Queensland. Outside of that you'll need a subscription to Fox Footy. If you aren't already a Foxtel customer then your best option is to watch on Kayo Sports. You can watch for free using this 14-day trial.

Brisbane showed great maturity in coming from behind for the second week in a row as they downed Essendon in round 2. Lachie Neale was the catalyst with an outstanding midfielder's game.

North Melbourne made the most of a decimated West Coast outfit to record a 15-point win last week at Marvel Stadium.

When is Brisbane vs North Melbourne?

This contest will take place on Saturday 2 April at 8:10pm AEDT at the Gabba in Brisbane.

How to watch Brisbane vs North Melbourne

Channel 7 and Foxtel have rights to broadcast AFL matches in Australia this season. Though it will only be Queenslanders who will have the option to watch on Channel 7. Those from the remaining states and territories can pick from Foxtel iQ, Foxtel Now or Kayo Sports.

Of the trio we think Kayo knocks Foxtel out of the park and is your best way to watch Lions vs Roos. Though if you'd like more information to make that decision yourself then see our full guide on how to watch the 2022 AFL season.

Brisbane vs North Melbourne match preview

Brisbane have found themselves 4 goals down in each of their first 2 matches this season but have found a way out of both holes to remain unbeaten. Lachie Neale, Dayne Zorko, Zac Bailey and co are really driving the midfield group and with Daniher, Cameron and McCarthy firing up forward they will be very hard to beat.

North Melbourne will gain confidence out of last week but will need to take that to another level this week to compete against a top 4 side.

We think they are improving, but aren't quite ready to take a scalp like this one.
