Game Chat – GWS v Gold Coast

Written by Thommo on April 1 2017

Venue: Spotless Stadium at 4:35pm AEDT

Last Time They Met: R20, 2016, Greater Western Sydney 14.8 (92) d Gold Coast Suns 13.6 (84) at Metricon Stadium

Game notes: Both teams head into round two with plenty to prove after suffering significant defeats to start the season. GWS was smashed by Adelaide on the road and looked anything but the premiership favourites, while the Suns were jumped in the QClash by the Lions and ended up losing by two points. The Giants lacked intensity and didn’t handle the pressure placed on them by the Crows last week, and coach Leon Cameron will be stressing the importance of his team defence against Gold Coast, with Tom Lynch and Peter Wright giving the visitors two big targets inside 50. Gary Ablett, Touk Miller and Aaron Hall found plenty of footy against the Lions, and their midfield battle with Dylan Shiel, Josh Kelly, and Callan Ward will be great to watch.

Thommo’s Tip: GWS by 50 points.

  3. People who say SOS knows nothing about recruiting, and that anyone could have done what he did with the draft picks and other concessions that he was given, need to take a good, hard look at the Gold Coast.
