Where and when: Sunday 21th June at 3:05pm (AEST) at Metricon Stadium
Last time they met: Rd 17, 2019: Adelaide 23.13 (151) def Gold Coast 8.8 (56)
What it means for the Suns: The Crows are the new Suns which means the Suns must be the new… somethings. If the Suns are going to make finals this season they will have to be able to beat the bottom teams. And this year, that is how the Crows are looking. Win and they are 2-1 and will have the confidence to push on. They beat the Eagles, so surely they can handle the Crows. If not ,their quality will be in question again.
What it means for the Crows: Every win puts them a bit farther from the wooden spoon. At 0-2 and on the bottom of the table, they have been looking like a team that belongs there. Of course so did the Doggies until this week, so there is hope. If they are going to have any hope of a decent finish they need to win.
Gold Coast: Rowel! Probably even has the C on him for a lot of folks. I hear there are other plays on the Suns, but I can’t recall any of them. Ok, Greenwood.
Adelaide: Laird is looking far less good than seasons past. His owners are hoping he bounces back. Doedee sucked in a lot of people last round and they are surel hoping he has shaken the rust off.
Father Dougal’s Watch: Budarick. That bloke is gonna be on the pitch for a lot more teams than originally expected.
Father Dougal’s Tip: Gold Coast by 30. LAst time they played the Crows scored 23 goals. This time I can imagine them scoring 23 points.

Have had to take the C off Gawn for obvious reasons. Can either take Dunkley’s VC or roll the dice on Rowell. He put up 171 v Eagles last week, Crows are terrible and he’s playing at Metricon.
What should I do?
T.U: Rounds shot, roll the dice on Rowell!
T.D: Calm down, Gun. Take Dunkley.
Why would you ever risk a guaranteed 128? Even if Gawn was playing it’s risky. I mean I’d do it but 98 times out of 100 you’d take 128!
Similar question. Have the VC sitting on Grundy and missed putting the C on Neale. Do i take Grundy’s 103 or role the dice with Rowell?
TU: Take Grundy’s score
TD: 2020 be a strange beast. Role the dice with Rowell
Strange beast it was. Great result
No late changes!
Might be the only one but I really wish we had done averages rather than have these players as a bye round. I saw SuperCoach said that there will be an issue with the lockout but I wish they could solve it. DT just looks a lot easier with how they set it up
I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m ready for some footy.
distract me from all the other stuff.
Tipped the Suns and I’m currently 2 tips from 6 sooooo, make of that what you will.
wow… suns try kicking it between the big sticks
just to mix it up a bit
I put 10 bucks on the suns to win by more that 60 points sooo… I kinda wished they kicked abit straigther but early days
I have never seen the Gold Coast play such frenzied footy. Amazing.
They were playing really good team defence last week. if they can keep doing that and find a couple of reliable goal scorers up forward they’ll be legit.
traded out both brodie smith & macpherson before the game
both scoring @1 pt per min
they couldnt get a kick before this game
no wonder no one bothers with this game anymore
As a Carlton supporter, I’m acutely aware of what it’s like to be stuck down the bottom for a long time, so it’s great to see Gold Coast finally up and about.
As to the Crows, if they can’t stop Gold Coast from marking it almost every time they go inside 50, this is going to get very, very, very ugly.
Its good to see gcs improving and wining! Keep it up
Feeling pretty good about throwing the C on Rowell at the last second out of pure rage. Had Grundy as VC.
He is going big thats for sure
Gold Coast just need to sign all of their kids, right now, for as long as possible. This is already a very good team. If they stay together, they can be a great one.
Got Rankine, Sharp and Flanders waiting in the wings too. Starting to build some depth.
If I put the c on field rivers will I get the VC Rowell?
Doedee really rewarding owners who held onto him!
I have to say I love the style Dew has the Suns playing.
Loving the Suns footy and Buddha

And in case you didn’t see the game…Laird’s 108 was possibly the least influential Supercoach ton I have ever seen.
haha for sure – it’s no wonder the defenders for Crows all scored well – the amount of traffic they had coming at them!!
Bit harsh on old Lairdy there Chillo Lol
Thought he did alright considering they got pumped, 25 touches with 3 tackles ain’t too bad. But I see what you’re saying, probably worth a 90 odd but I’ll take it!
Yeah, me too Vic. But if I’m being honest, the bloke did nothing in that game!
Despite the 19 T.Ds against it, I backed in Rowell for the C. Feeling very smug lol!
In all seriousness, his form is excellent and the Crows suck – knew he’d pop off.
Check out captaincy candidates,
U heard it from me first.
I’m not just a pretty face.
I mean, I wrote the Captaincy Candidates article suggesting Rowell in the first place lol.
But, yes. Good job, AH! Great minds think alike!
Haha, Roswell is killing my season, good on the young fella!
Spoon passed… (sob sob…)
