Where and when: Metricon Stadium, Saturday 10th April at 7:25pm (AEST)
Last time they met: Rd 13, 2020: Carlton 7.18 (60) def Gold Coast 4.3 (27) at TIO Stadium
As you can tell from the score, this was a flogging minus the straight kicking by Carlton. They controlled the game with Murphy, Cripps and Jack Martin winning plenty of the ball and were never headed by the Suns. To be fair to the Gold Coast, they had played through consecutive short breaks of 6, 5 then 4 days and were never switched on from the first bounce.
Match Preview: While the Blues and Suns are young teams, both teams now have enough experience that their fans are expecting improvement. A good way to show that improvement would be by defeating other teams outside the top eight. So here is their chance!
Gold Coast have the home ground advantage while the Blues showed an improved effort last week so neither team has any excuses here. This won’t be a pretty match but there’s sure to be plenty of intensity.
I don’t own any Suns since poor old Matty Rowell went down with injury again, so my interest in Gold Coast is more about the development in the young guns, my favourites being Lucosius and Anderson. I will keep an eye on the replacement ruck with Witts out for the season.
I am a proud Sam Walsh owner and enjoy watching his explosive pace around the packs in 2021. The argument of who is better between Rosee and Walsh is swinging back his way at the moment!
Thommo’s Tip: Carlton by 12 points (This is getting embarrassing – record 3 from 9)
