TheÂ AFL Football Season 2018 has begun. A series of matches will be played out over the Easter break . This included an historic game between the North Melbourne Kangaroos and the St Kilda Saints on Good Friday. Traditionally no AFL Games were played on Good Friday.
In 2017Â the North Melbourne KangaroosÂ played the Western Bulldogs on the firstÂ Good Friday match up. The North Melbourne Kangaroos had long advocated for a match on this day and were duly rewarded by the AFL by being the first team selected to play .
This has changed and the AFL now schedules a match for this day with North Melbourne playing opposing sides. Many fans get along to games over the Easter Break including games on Easter Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
Interstate sides have fared well in Round 2 of the footy fixture with wins to the Dockers, Suns, Giants and Crows. The Adelaide Crows playing at home defeated the Richmond Tigers in a rematch of the 2017 Premiership Game.Â
