Gold Coast

  • Out: Nicholls (Omitted), Davis (Rested), May (Suspended), Brooksby (Omitted), Prestia (Illness)

North – No Changes

Game Notes: The only undefeated team in the competition travel to Metricon for a 1st v 5th clash. Plenty of outs for the Gold Coast Suns results in a very different line up we saw last week. May will begin his month-long holiday and Prestia will be a big loss in the contested possession stakes. Jarrad Waite v Tom Lynch will be an interesting dual at either ends of the ground, while as always Gary Ablett will be a delight to watch through the middle. Goldstein comes up against his former team mate, Currie and many will have him captain here this afternoon.

The 6 Points

1. Gold Coastโ€™s win last season was largely due to an explosive 14 goals to seven second half. Skipper Gary Ablett starred with 31 disposals and three goals, while Charlie Dixon kicked a club record seven goals.

2. The Kangaroos are ranked first for scoring this season, and are in the top two for clearance and centre clearances. Gold Coast is ranked equal fourth in scoring.

3. Ablett has enjoyed his time playing against North Melbourne since joining the Suns, polling 12 Brownlow votes in five games with two best on ground performances.

4. Gold Coast is ranked second in 2016 for marks inside 50, averaging 16 a game, thanks largely to Tom Lynch, who is ranked first with a total of 18.

5. North Melbourne is no stranger to Metricon Stadium, playing the most games at the venue outside of the two Queensland teams. It has won nine of its 14 games there. The Kangaroos are chasing five wins to start the season for the first time since 2005.

6. Jarrad Waite’s four goals last weekend continued his rise up the AFL Official Player Ratings to a career-high 76th overall and 10th amongst key forwards. His 16 goals this season has him equal second behind Gold Coast’s Tom Lynch (18).

MJโ€™s tip: North by 17

  1. 1/4 time update

    First goal – Goldy

    GAJ has a lower tight leg injury after a knock and a hyperextension. Spent half the 1/4 with the trainers.

    North has been a bit more clinical than GC but could’ve been further apart with Brown, Petrie and Harvey all missing getable goals.

    Umpiring has been in North’s favour with all the 50/50s going our way.
    Cunnington may be in trouble for a high bump but he should be right as the GC player ran into him more than anything.

    GC still in it but they’ve got to put more pressure on the North midfield who are pinpointing the talls in the fwd50.

      1. He got a free kick Webby. If he already had a free or a mark, then would have been 50m.

        Are you trolling or not familiar with the game?

    1. Only made it for the 2nd half of the Port v Saints game when he got 33. We (Saints) played rebounding footy which may explain his 33. Don’t think he got a knock. However his 101, 86 and 102 are more what you would expect from the champ.

  6. The Roos just keep answering the challenges by the Suns. It feels like the Suns are a defender short … May a big loss.

  8. Roos have blown the game apart.

    Saad has done a groin injury.

    Glad I dumped Lonergan this week seen as my other trade has half bit me in the ass with getting rid of Papley.

    1. Papley got 78 his be was 70? Not a huge mistake of a trade. Need 2 more good weeks to get the 24 out.

      1. Papley BE was 62. BE will be about 35 next week but once that 24 drops out of his rolling average his BE should be down to single digits. He should rise another 100k over following 3-4 weeks

  9. Really proud of the boys this season. Teams are coming at them and they’re kicking away. What a start!!! All set for a massive game on Friday night vs the Doggies.

  10. Great win by the boys.
    A lot of commentators saying that Adelaide have the best forwards, I reckon ours are better.
    What do you guys and gals think?

Game Chat – Gold Coast v North Melbourne

Written by Thommo on July 4 2015

After 2014ย we all expected so much of the Suns yet their early season form was terrible and we all blamed Ablett’s injury for the poor performances. Well now we know better: There are inherent cultural problems on the Gold Coast that need fixing.

The Kangaroos are currently pretending otherwise, but they will enjoy the disruption at the Suns this week. They must win this game to keep within striking distance of the top 8.

Despite the returns of Gazza and Swallow, it is hard to see the Suns pushing North this week.

Thommo’s tip: North by 24 points.

  1. Should I trade Harley Bennell for Gawn?
    The question is will he miss more than 1 week?

    T/U – Yes
    T/D – No

  2. Ignoring SuperCoach scores, I really hope Gaz goes well today. It’s obviously been a pretty ordinary week and I think we’re all overdue for some good news.

  3. Little off-topic guys, but going out later tonight so need to get this addressed now:

    Who to play for Lever in D6:

    T/U – Hamling
    T/D – A.Pearce

    Worst case scenario I won’t need the score since I’m fielding 22 this week, cheers guys ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Gaz still looking a bit tentative especially in traffic. Hopefully he gets better as the game goes on.
