Game notes: Two inconsistent clubs, two coaches under pressure – how can you possibly predict what’s going to happen here? Collingwood has won just five games this season but been competitive in most matches before falling right away against Essendon last weekend. The six-goal loss seemed to spell the end of their remote finals chances and brought a new wave of pressure on out-of-contract coach Nathan Buckley. Buckley’s Gold Coast counterpart Rodney Eade is also feeling the heat after the Suns’ poor showing against Sydney last weekend. Gold Coast is barely clinging to a mathematical chance of making the top eight and must deal with the Magpies to keep their dream flickering. With some experienced personnel expected to return, the Suns should have the midfield to match the Pies and the forwards to take advantage, but with these two teams, you just never know.
Thommo’s Tip: Gold Coast by 18 points.
