The first game today is between two teams who last year rivalled Fitzroy’s final team in 1996 for ineptitude.
North and West Coast finished 18th and 17th respectively last year with 2-20 win-loss records.
The Kangaroos’ percentage was a pathetic 55.8, while the Eagles’ wasn’t much better at 59.8.
Today, North will be aiming to break their five-game losing streak, while West Coast will be looking to bring an end to their eight-match losing run.
The Kangas have only won one of their last nine games at Marvel Stadium, but the Eagles haven’t struggled as badly there in recent years, winning five of their last eight at the venue.
North are also gunning for a third consecutive win against the Eagles for the first time since 1999.
