Game Chat – Gold Coast vs Carlton

Written by Huttabito on July 28 2018

WHERE AND WHEN: Metricon Stadium, Saturday, July 28, 7.25pm AEST

One week ago there was almost a morbid fascination about this match, but following Gold Coast’s historic upset of Sydney last week, the stakes have been lowered ever so slightly. The Suns are now three games ahead of Carlton on the ladder and even if the Blues win, the chances of them avoiding the wooden spoon seem slim. Brendon Bolton’s men have had a horror year, dealing with a dreadful injury toll and a losing streak that has hit new lows in recent weeks with floggings from bottom-four teams Brisbane and St Kilda. But they would still fancy themselves in this match, despite the Suns’ breakthrough win last week. Stuart Dew’s men had shown patches of form leading up to the victory over Sydney, but took their pressure to a whole new level. With a couple of seasoned players expected to return, the Suns will go in strong favourites to make it back-to-back wins and jump further up the ladder.

R2, 2018, Gold Coast 15.11 (101) d Carlton 9.13 (67) at Etihad Stadium
R13, 2017, Carlton 12.11 (83) d Gold Coast 11.7 (73) at Metricon Stadium
R4, 2017, Gold Coast 17.6 (108) d Carlton 12.10 (82) at Etihad Stadium
R3, 2016, Gold Coast 13.17 (95) d Carlton 5.11 (41) at Metricon Stadium
R13, 2015, Carlton 14.19 (103) d Gold Coast 9.15 (69) at Etihad Stadium

Hutta’s Tip: Gold Coast by 15 points.

  2. OK Hutta … just cooked the missus apricot chicken (soften the blow of telling her I just got Foxtel!!hahaha …) … so I can look to put some scores up as the game goes …. Brisvegas has the Suns – Blues match, so I’ll focus on that one … if you want to look at the other if there?? If not, I’ll try for both …


    1. I did that last week regrettably , figured Curnow would go to Titch but he ran free & Cripps got tagged & KO’d instead , just going with Titch for the rest of the year now n hoping to get competitive captains scores ..


  3. Half Time – Suns up by 2 …

    This is one ugly game … poor skills by both teams, like watching two under 10 teams play. Commentators banging on about ‘dew’ but the skills are shocking … Suns a shadow of last week.

    Cripps DE only 55% – commentators actually said it was % … CD will have a hard time awarding the full points for this match at this rate, as these scores are rubbish … and IMHO bogus …


  4. Well, the good news is that we might actually win this game. The bad news is that I didn’t make Cripps captain.

    My gut said one of two things would happen with him tonight: he’d score 90-something, or he’d go and pump out 200-ish. The former possibility scared me off unfortunately.


  5. What an awful game … the Tour De FRance is much more interesting …

    I’m that much more worse off for watching through that match … just ugly.


    1. great effort that Champ! I’m up against RooBloke in Contribs league and he has the VC on Cripps … I’m bending over now, someone pass me the lube!!

      At least Gawn got up to a slightly decent score for my C …

      Mind you the scores in this game are rubbish and they had to pad out the full 3300 … Cripps going at only 50% for his score … questionable stats all around … one of the worst games of footy I’ve watched ever …


  6. YES YES YES YES YES!!!!!!

    I’d forgotten how good it feels to win 🙁

    I missed out on Captain Cripps, but honestly I couldn’t care less right now. 😀
