Game notes: This should be a huge day for the Suns, with Gary Ablett due to play his 300th game if he overcomes a calf injury that forced him out of last week’s match against St Kilda. Regardless of whether the little champion plays or not, Gold Coast is down to almost its last chance to keep its top-eight dreams alive after successive losses in the past fortnight. They were competitive but lacked polish against the Saints and face a Kangaroos outfit that has show spirit all season without quite getting the rewards – with last week’s one-point loss to the Western Bulldogs a case in point. Both midfields have strong inside players, and the result might hinge on how well the Suns cope with North’s tall forwards. Gold Coast is generally a much better team at home and should get away with this one.
Thommo’s Tip: Gold Coast by 12 points.
