Where and when: Carrara, 1:45pm (AEST)
Last time they met: R7 2020: Sydney 9.6 (60) DEF BY Gold Coast 13.14 (92) at the SCG.
Midfield duo Hugh Greenwood (23 disposals, 12 tackles) and David Swallow (22 disposals, one goal) were superb, as the visitors continually kept a young Sydney side at arm’s length throughout the evening. Izak Rankine in game 2 was ridiculous and there was no Heeney or Franklin but of the 9 Sydney youngsters under the age of 21 playing, Tom McCartin and Will Hayward were by far the most impressive.
Match Preview: Even with the match being played on their turf, the depleted Suns face a huge task to knock off The Swans. Despite coming off a loss to The Giants last week, Sydney looks leaps and bounds ahead of Gold Coast in their development and will be looking to avenge last year’s loss in their own backyard.
