How to watch North Melbourne vs Port Adelaide AFL and start time
Port Adelaide begin the defence of their minor premiership with a clash against the new-look Kangaroos. This is how to watch.
Kangaroos fans will surely have low expectations after watching their team finish second-last on the table last year. Then under new coach David Noble the side had a poor pre-season, including a 91-point hiding at the hands of St Kilda.
Port Power will be aiming to go at least one step further than last season. Securing the minor premiership, they then lost a home preliminary final to Richmond and will be determined to reach the big dance in 2021.
When is North Melbourne vs Port Adelaide?

Who will win North Melbourne vs Port Adelaide?
The Kangaroos have off-loaded a heap of experienced players, including Ben Brown and Shaun Higgins. They have a new coach and several fresh players who will take time to find their feet at Arden St. Mature-age recruits Jaidyn Stephenson, Aidan Corr and Lachie Young should all play on Sunday.
Alternatively the electrifying Power are settled and close to full strength under coach Ken Hinkley. Port are likely to hand club debuts to recruits Aliir Aliir and Orazio Fantasia in a side with plenty of depth. We expect Port to win this match comfortably.
