Sydney

No change

Game Notes: These two teams could not be travelling much differently, with the Suns on a seven-game losing streak, and the Swans sitting second and fresh off wins over Hawthorn and North Melbourne. There is a silver lining for the battling Suns though, with a stack of players returning from injury this week, which should make them more competitive. They’ve never beaten the Swans in their short history, and with a lack of personnel and continuity, it’s hard to see that changing this week. We’ll see two of the game’s best forwards go at it, with Lance Franklin and Tom Lynch both in ripping form, while Gary Ablett, Dion Prestia and co will have their hands full trying to curtail the red-hot Swans midfield. Looks to be just one result here.

The 6 Points

1. The Swans weren’t troubled by the Suns the last time they played, winning disposals (416-319), tackles (56-43), inside 50s (70-44), and scoring shots (32-19). Josh Kennedy was best on ground with 31 disposals and two goals.

2. Since round six the Suns have lost five consecutive matches by an average margin of 87 points, conceding 151 points a game while kicking just 64 points themselves.

3. Gold Coast is yet to defeat the Swans from six attempts. Four games have been decided by more than 50 points, while the closest margin has been 35 points.

4. The Swans are a strong contested marking side this season, averaging 13.6 a game while Gold Coast has struggled in this area, ranked equal 14th at 10.4 a game.

5. The Swans are the top-ranked side so far in 2016 for contested possessions with 163.6 a game. In contrast, the Suns are ranked 17th at 130.2 a game.

6. Swan Dan Hannebery has scorched to a career-high 19th overall in the AFL Official Player Ratings following last week’s 34-disposal, one goal game against the Kangaroos.

MJ’s Tip: Swans by 100

While we do our best to update posts with end of quarter scores, we aren’t always online so if you have access to the scores and see they haven’t gone into the Comments section of this post, the Community would love it if you could help us out.

    1. Not good news but good news for young James Rose, who has been very impressive on limited opportunitirs.

  5. Wet weather usually brings skilled sides back to their competitors.

    The suns might not relish playing sydney in these conditions but they are sure much closer than most pundits would have them in the dry.

  6. James Rose robbed there, but correct decision with no goal post cameras.

    As to why an AFL venue doesn’t have them, well that is another story.

    1. Seriously, Lonergan … 46 at qtr time and end on 66 … useless SOB! .. Hall was also weak and not getting in for hard ball gets or putting himself on the line … frustrating!

      1. Thanks for the scores, Macca!

        Yep, 47% of teams have Hall. Hasn’t had a ton since Rd4. Can understand if he’s traded out. Clearly not Top6 FWD……..

Game Chat – Gold Coast v Sydney

Written by Thommo on June 6 2015

If anyone with the ability to kick a footy is in the Gold Coast vicinity, please head down to Metricon Stadium; the Suns may need you. Out go Bennell, Martin and Sexton with injury and Dixon with stupidity and in come the few uninjured players remaining in Broughton, Raines, Cameron and big Peter Wright for his first game. Sydney are gaining momentum and despite losing McGlynn, they should have little trouble accounting for Gold Coast.

There are plenty of captaincy options in this game as surely Parker and Kennedy will bounce back against the Suns. Buddy may back up with another monster score despite his poor recent history versus the Gold Coast. For all the Glenn owners sweating on his status, he has been named as an emergency alongside Malceski.

Thommo’s tip: Sydney by 72 points.

  4. Have to say i love watching Nicholls. So competitive. Suns have a real future star there. Him, Steven May, Alex Saad and Tom Lynch are clear stars in a very undermanned Suns outfit.

  5. Hanneberry is going absolutely nuclear. Also JPK looks set for another dodgy score, for those of you who don’t have him get set for a JPK ‘no brainer’ fallen premiums pick in 2-3 rounds.

  11. Had to learn a lesson the hard way today. Went with a gut feeling and put JPK as Captain. That is gonna cost me bigtime. If Fyfe had scored that 116 on a Sunday arvo, we’d have all been ok with that. Just had to go searching for that extra 10-20 pts and it’s backfired in a big way. Lesson for future: back yourself in with PODs, but don’t mess around with Captain (Fyfe, Gray, Pendles)…….
