How to watch Geelong Cats vs North Melbourne Kangaroos AFL live and free
Geelong aim to improve their play-off prospects against North Melbourne in round 10 AFL action. This is how to watch. This is how you can watch.
Geelong really are enduring a roller-coaster of a season. World-beaters and flag favourites one week, also-rans and mere play-off hopefuls the next. Their loss to West Coast last week leaves the Cats vulnerable to the chasing pack, while they could also jump into the top four with a win.
They take on a North Melbourne side that finally broke out of a long rut in round nine. The Roos snapped a six-game losing streak with their win over Adelaide. Finals technically aren't an impossible dream for Rhyce Shaw's men, but they need to keep winning and quickly.

Who will win Geelong vs North Melbourne?
Geelong and North Melbourne are known for having some epic battles over the years, often regardless of ladder positions. The Kangaroos at least showed a return to form last week, albeit against the lowly Crows. It included one of the best stories this year, Majak Daw's return to senior football after a troubled stretch on and off the field for the Sudanese refugee. It would be great for Daw and the Roos to build on that performance. But there is just too much on the line to envisage Geelong dropping this game.
