Game Chat – Gold Coast vs Collingwood

Written by Huttabito on June 30 2018

WHERE AND WHEN: Metricon Stadium, Saturday, June 30, 7.25pm AEST

SUMMARY
Collingwood has stormed into the top four off the back of five straight wins and is strongly favoured to continue its run against the struggling Suns. Despite the loss of ace midfielder Adam Treloar, the Magpies have proven so far in 2018 they have a glut of players that can effectively run through the middle of the ground and provide their speedy, smaller forward line – apart from Mason Cox – plenty of opportunities. Conversely, Gold Coast are in a hole. They’ve lost eight straight games, and apart from the narrow loss to St Kilda in their last home game, have struggled to compete. The return of Peter Wright last week gave the Suns a nice one-two punch in the forward line alongside Tom Lynch, but the big area of improvement needs to come in the middle of the ground. Can the Suns match the powerful running of Collingwood’s midfielders, and can their defenders stop their mobile forwards? On recent evidence, the answer is no on all counts. The Magpies should win this one easily.

  1. Hey guys just a quick one, am playing for league only now, and don’t play another top 8 side till finals, so thinking about doing something stupid and holding treloar just to see how he goes post surgery and if he comes back for the last couple of finals. So,

    TU – Hold Treloar for at least this week to see how the surgery goes, and therefore trade guelfi to Neale this week

    TD – Treloar to Neale, easy straight swap

    1. You know when you are so set up upgrading a player you panic and just do it anyway? Thought I went Wingard, apparently forgot to press ‘T’ so ended up going De Goey instead. Think I would have been better just holding Fritsch. Can see a-50 point penalty for wearing blinders….

  7. Was Jack Crisp sore or something? Otherwise why does a back pocket/flanker, and an important one at that, only manage 75% GT? Absolutely fuming, he would have pumped out a good score if he wasn’t benched for essentially a whole quarter.
