How to watch North Melbourne Kangaroos vs West Coast Eagles AFL live and free

West CoastvsNorth Melbourne_kayo_450x250

North Melbourne draw the curtain on a desperately disappointing season against a fired-up West Coast line-up. This is how to watch.

SUMMARY: Kangaroos vs Eagles is exclusive to Fox Footy outside of WA. So unless you're already an existing Foxtel customer, your best option is to watch live on Kayo Sports. You can watch for free using this 14-day trial. This gets you access to all its unique features and 50 additional live sports.

North Melbourne will be overjoyed to see the back of 2020. A season that began with consecutive wins and bountiful optimism ends on Thursday night with just one more victory all year long. It has put coach Rhyce Shaw and the club firmly in the spotlight.

The Kangas take on a West Coast side that will be kicking itself over its current position. A 2-2 record over their past 4 games has the Eagles in fifth place and needing a miracle to finish in the all-important top four. They are likely to take out their frustrations on North Melbourne.

Who will win North Melbourne vs West Coast?

This should really be a procession between a West Coast side that needs a strong win and a North Melbourne line-up trying to find somewhere to hide. Despite slipping out of the top four in recent weeks, the Eagles should be right in the premiership hunt. We can't see them giving the Kangaroos any hope on the Gold Coast.
