Game notes: Melbourne’s up and down formline continued against North Melbourne on Sunday, with a 14-point loss bringing the Demons back to the pack with a win-loss record of 4-5. That followed a 41-point win over Adelaide the week before, further emphasising the Demons’ inconsistency. However, Simon Goodwin’s team have a golden opportunity to get back to parity in Alice Springs on Saturday. Gold Coast is coming off its bye following a significant loss to Port Adelaide in the match played in Shanghai in round eight. The Suns will be looking to make amends for a poor showing against the Power and look to edge out of the bottom-four places on the ladder. Melbourne has never previously won a game in Alice Springs, but should go into the match against the Suns brimming with confidence.
Thommo’s Tip: Melbourne by 24 points.
