Venue: Etihad Stadium, Saturday, April 29, 7.25pm AEST
Last Time They Met: R5, 2016, North Melbourne 18.11 (119) d Gold Coast 11.15 (81) at Metricon Stadium
R14, 2015, Gold Coast 19.11 (125) d North Melbourne 10.10 (70) at Metricon Stadium
Game notes: North Melbourne could quite easily be 3-2 and sitting inside the top eight, if not for its inability to close out matches against Geelong, the Western Bulldogs and Fremantle. The Roos are instead 0-5 and simply must beat Gold Coast, which returned to earth with a thud in a heavy loss to competition pacesetter Adelaide. The Robbie Tarrant-Tom Lynch showdown could go a long way to deciding the contest, with the young Suns focal point booting four goals in the corresponding clash last year. North Melbourne will need savvy on-baller Ben Cunnington to maintain his red-hot form to help win the midfield battle.
