Where and when: Metricon Stadium, Saturday 27th March at 8:10pm (AEDT)
Last time they met: R14, 2020: Gold Coast 12.19 (91) def North Melbourne 4.4 (28) at Metricon
The Suns hadn’t won a match since Round 7 but this one was never in doubt. They lead at every change with only inaccurate kicking preventing them from putting this match away before half-time. Ainsworth, Anderson and Rankine lead the way, showing there is a bright future at Gold Coast. Sexton kicked 4 goals and King 2 goals.
For the Roos only Anderson and McDonald showed any real fight as they failed to kick a single goal after half-time.
The Roos are not going well (I’m sure that statement shocked you). Many ‘experts’ had the Hawks last but surely North already have one hand on the spoon. Even without Matty Rowell and with the inclusion of Anderson for North, the Suns should prove too talented for the Roos and really should lock away their first win for season 2021.
North Melbourne – Let’s be honest, most of us are watching Jack Ziebell to see if he can repeat the 100+ score of round 1. A few smart coaches may have started with LDU and Jaidyn Stephenson but after that the Supercoach options fall away rapidly.
